After the Administration Library? Examination of the Environmental Scanning by the Central Administration of the County Council of Kalmar län. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this Master’s thesis is to examine the environmental scanning by the employees and politicians at the central administration at the County Council of Kalmar län. The background of the study is the closing of the administration library in January 2003, which gave more tasks to the hospital libraries of the County Council. The main questions of this study concerns the information needs of the employees and politicians, what electronic sources they prefer to use to satisfy those needs and if they are experiencing a need for more support and help, from a librarian or by the development of a common catalogue of hyperlinks. All 104 persons in the population were asked to answer a questionnaire on the Intranet. The task was performed by 60 persons. Six persons in leading positions were interviewed. The examples of information needs were collected and organized according to the PEST-model. The result of this questionnaire shows that about half of the population would, at least partly, like more help in information seeking, but only five percent totally agrees. No one of the interviewees firmly agrees with the idea of a librarian to help with information seeking. Their view is that the quantitative part of the environmental scanning is working fine and the problem is to avoid information overload. There was a slightly bigger interest in the idea of a common catalogue of hyperlinks. Finally the electronic resources used by the respondents were compared to the common link catalogue of the hospital libraries.
