How can libraries be user-friendly to people with dyslexia? (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out how libraries can be user-friendly to people with dyslexia by focusing on how adult dyslectics experience the library. Data were collected through literature and interviews with adult dyslectic students. Two different types of user studies served as a theoretical framework; one was an individual-related study by professor Wilson and the other was a system-related one from professor Buckland. The findings in this study shows that dyslectic library users often experience difficulties when seeking for materials in the library, due to the libraries organisation of material according to the written language. Through technical aid and a more user-friendly organisation of materials it may be easier to find relevant material for dyslectics. Adapted material, such as talking books, can serve them so that they can use the library material to a greater extent. Further conclusions of this study shows the importance to the user of the librarians politely and sympathetic reception. Another finding shows that the libraries need to make themselves known to this target group, as dyslectics not often visit the library.
