”We are not allowed to have Internet” A study of six young persons with mild mental disability, their information habits and the library’s part in their search for information (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate information seeking habits among young persons with mild mental disability. We wanted to know how they seek information in everyday life, barriers they experience when seeking information and also if they consider the library to be a source of information. The theoretical background of this study is based on the works of T. D. Wilson and Michael Buckland. Wilson’s model of information seeking behavior and seeking information was used as a tool analyzing the results from the interviews. Buckland’s six aspects of access to information works as a supplement to Wilson’s theory. A qualitative method, based on emistructured interviews and literature studies, was applied in our research. Six persons with mild mental disability were interviewed in their home environment. The results indicate that the respondents often were dependent on others to get access to some information. It seems, a majority of the respondents want access to more Information, especially from the Internet, enabling them to seek information on their own without asking for help. They also visit the library to some extent but we found that different kinds of barriers prevent them from getting all the information they want there.
