The School Librarian role of profession : Five school librarians in different municipalities picture their professional role (English)
Abstract [en]

Although the different roles of the school library have beenresearched, the research on the roles of school librarians isfragmented. In 2011 new regulations regarding school librarieswere enforced and the role of school librarians was discussed inboth culture policy issues and in education policies. The aim of thisthesis is to gain insight into how school librarians themselvesexperience their professional role.The results are based on semi-structured interviews. Five schoollibrarians were interviewed in different municipalities. The schoollibrarians described their various assignments and conditions in theirschool libraries. The theoretical framework and analysis is based ondifferent roles identified by Anders Ørom and Trine Schreiber inpublic library contexts combined with Carol Kuhlthau´s identificationof the school librarian´s pedagogical role.The empirical data revealed that the librarians experience theirprofessional role mostly as cultural intermediators and to someextent as pedagogical. The informants all found it important to beincluded as part of the school organization, which was not alwaysthe case. It is concluded that from a developmental perspective,more work need to be done to better integrate school librarians inschools, in particular by establishing the school librarian as amember of the school staff.
