Abstract [en]

The topic of this essay is information seeking for children and young people in municipal libraries. This is based in the growing need for information seeking skills in the Information Society. Policy documents on the topic are scrutinized and related to a concrete praxis. Data has been collected through two case studies; one carried out in Ronneby and one in Trandared, Borås. These cases where chosen because of the existence of a local policy for library skills and information search for 6 to 12-year-olds. Observations are complemented by interviews with librarians, teachers, politicians and officials in charge of information search. The study involves organisations which have recently started and are still in a phase of construction. It shows varying organisations and praxis, based in local needs and resources. It also points at the importance of collaboration, in particular between municipal and school libraries. The skills of librarians have been well used. They have developed a pedagogical approach in information seeking. Policy documents vary considerably between different levels in society. On the national level one can see an awareness of the need for information search skills to match the new technology. This is not visible in the local policies. The reason for the progressive activities in the cases studied is skilled and interested officials.
