Hospital librarians in focus A phenomenographic study of hospital librarians experiences of the professional role in working with children and young people (English)
Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this thesis is to investigate hospital librarians understanding of their professional role in working with children. Two different aspects of the professional role were focused on; professional knowledge and ethics. The following research questions were posed: - How do hospital librarians experience their professional role in working with children and young people? - What is regarded as professional knowledge content for hospital librarians in working with children and young people? - How do hospital librarians view ethical aspects in working with children and young people? The issues have been addressed through qualitative interviews with seven hospital librarians. We have used phenomenography which is both a set of theoretical assumptions and a methodology. Through phenomenographic method, various understandings of what it means to be a hospital librarian emerge. The results of the study are presented in systematically grouped categories of quotations that reflect these different views. Conceptions of the professional role can be seen as rehabilitative, traditional and social. Conceptions of knowledge relate to healthcare environment, childrens welfare and to the practice of librarianship. Finally, conceptions of ethical aspects in working with children can be related to the healthcare environment, the librarians role and to personal ethical values. Three different aspects of a librarians professional role clearly emerged: the healthcare environment, the personal qualities of the librarian and the librarians view of the librarys function in a hospital context. These aspects form a basis upon which the librarians build their professional roles.
