Gender communication in the library world : she and he in a female sphere (English)
Abstract [en]

The librarian profession is dominated by women. The aim with this essay is to find out how men and women in this field get on together, and how they experience their psycho·social work situation bearing this in mind. Are there any advantages or disadvantages being a woman or a man in this profession? What do the librarians think about the future? Men and women working at five different public libraries, where the domination of women is greatest, have been interviewed. The essay is based on their opinions and experiences. The female and male librarian get on well with each other and have a good cooperation.There are not many advantages or disadvantages depending on the sex in the profession, but the image, status and salary would probably be better, if there were more men in the profession. The library must accept the ongoing information technology development - its future is depending on this.
