Public libraries, how do they define and present e-books on their websites? A content analysis of public library websites in 2014 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to see how the Swedish public libraries present e-books on their website. This study has tried to answer the following questions: 1. How do the public libraries construct their definitions of the word e-book, and what patterns are there in the definitions? 2. How is the e-book definition presented in the context of the public library websites? This study has formulated its own theoretical framework in regards to how you can categorize definitions in four different categories to help see the way a definition is constructed. The framework also contains how different parts of the definition work towards the purpose of the definition. This study has been conducted through a content analysis. Among the public libraries we have studied, we have not observed a definition that was generally used for the word e-book. However the similarities between the definitions were plenty. The definitions most used were descriptive definitions. They tended to contain the same elements but were expressed in a variety of ways. The result showed consistency with the literature in the field. We have also observed that the public library website tends to categorize the information on and/or definition of e-books below a variety of terms. We have also observed that the definition tends to be the first thing mentioned in the part about e-books. The definition tended to be placed above the fold on the webpage.
