    The current situation of e-books in academic and public libraries in Sweden2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The arrival of e-books in Swedish libraries has been influenced by the ideas of provisions of equal access to all media and all Swedish citizens as well as by librarians’ wish to provide best service to their users within the library’s area of responsibility. They saw this new resource and service in the light of fulfilling their specific function in a democratic society that is usually expressed in Sweden as mediation (or transfer) of knowledge and culture to all. This is a common foundation, on which new media and information resources (including e-books) are incorporated into Swedish academic and public libraries. Apart from this common basis we see other similarities in work with e-books in both types of libraries, but also a number of differences. Most of them relate to the situation of libraries within their respective context and in relation to their specific role. Academic libraries are quite influential players in the global scholarly communication and supporters of both research and study processes. As such they are embedded in mainly international market of scientific information and scholarly materials. They have significant resources provided by parent universities for acquisition and a wide choice of commercially available material from different producers and vendors. They are organized into a national library consortium that has increased negotiation power. Thus, they have more freedom to experiment with a variety of business and pricing models offered on the international market. They also have high competence in the area of publishing and often play a role of a publisher themselves. Their involvement in research process and in open access initiatives puts them in a position to provide expertise to researchers in publishing and intellectual property areas. Public libraries are part of local cultural and educational landscape. As such they depend on the production of media and content in national languages that helps to cater to the needs and demands of the local population. They also are customers on a relatively small market of publishing, entertainment and education-related materials that help to fulfil their function in the enlightenment of the people. As public libraries offer open and free-of-charge access to their resources to the totality of the population in a particular territory, eventually covering the whole country, they are regarded as a disruptive player in the market economy. This perceived threat from public libraries was reborn in the emerging market of e-books. Despite these differences both academic and public libraries face similar challenges and problems in management of their collections, creating metadata, and providing access to them. So far, no such solutions that could satisfy all involved parties have been found.

    Introducing e-books into Swedish libraries has been influenced by the idea of equal access to all media for all Swedish citizens as well as by librarians’ wish to provide the best possible service to their users.

They are also customers on the limited market of publishing, entertainment and education-related materials which help fulfil their function as educators. As public libraries offer open and free access to their resources to the entire population of a certain area, eventually covering the whole country, 14 they are regarded as a disruptive element in the market economy. This perceived threat from public libraries was reborn with the emergence of e-books. Despite their differences, both academic and public libraries face similar challenges and problems relating to the management of their collections, creating metadata, and providing access to their content. So far, there haven’t been any mutually satisfactory solutions.

    The acquisition of e-books in the libraries of the Swedish higher education institutions.2014Inngår i: Information research, ISSN 1368-1613, E-ISSN 1368-1613, Vol. 19, nr 2Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. Our aim is to compare the advantages and problems of e-book acquisition identified in research literature to those experienced by two Swedish university libraries. Method. A literature review was used to identify the main issues related to acquisition of e-books by academic libraries. The data for comparison were collected through case studies in two Swedish universities. Document analysis, interviews and personal experience were used for data collection. Results. The main drivers of e-book acquisition by Swedish academic libraries are the perceived needs of the users. E-books are regarded as potentially useful for solving some of the problems of library service. A number of challenges and problems identified by the participants in the case studies coincide with those that were derived from the literature review. Conclusions. The problems of e-book acquisition in academic libraries seem to be common to the economically strong Western countries. University librarians see certain advantages of e-books for their users and libraries. Publishers and academic librarians expect that e-books would not lose the advantages that printed books offered to them. Hence, publishers restrict the usage of e-books to ensure revenues as if from selling individual copies. Librarians try to regain the same level of control over e-book collections as for printed materials.

    Performance evaluation as a tool for strategic decisions about serving visually impaired users: The case of the Lithuanian Library for the Blind2016Inngår i: Library & Information Science Research, ISSN 0740-8188, E-ISSN 1873-1848, Vol. 38, nr 2, s. 161-169Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The complexity of serving diverse and dispersed target audiences of visually impaired persons suggest that there is a need to analyse the performance of libraries for the blind. This issue is currently neglected in library and information science research. Library managers and policy-makers can employ performance data for developing new strategies for service delivery and sustainability. The balanced scorecard and historical benchmarking approaches were applied to analyse the performance of the Lithuanian Library for the Blind (LLB) in 2008-2012. The concepts of strategic issues and strategies were employed to demonstrate how performance evaluation findings may be used for the purposes of strategic planning. The findings revealed the attractiveness and sufficiency of cultural services, but also the inability of the LLB to reach its target audiences, the inefficiency of internal processes, low use of information resources and electronic services, and a lack of sustainability in organisational learning. A model of service provision in collaboration with public and academic libraries for publishing and distribution of literature in accessible formats was suggested to the LLB. It is in line with the policy and legal decisions necessary for achieving the Library's main goals.

    Conceptualising the role of digital reading in social and digital inclusion2018Inngår i: Proceedings of ISIC: the Information Behaviour Conference, Krakow, Poland, 9-11 October, 2018: Part 1, Borås: Högskolan i Borås, 2018, Vol. 4, artikkel-id isic1805Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. The aim of the paper is to explore previous research on digital reading in relation to social and digital inclusion. It looks at the more general aspects of reading research and how digital reading research has built upon them or changed the previous approaches.

    Method. The main method used for writing the paper is the literature review as mainly published research is analysed. The material for the review was selected from the results of search in Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar databases.

    Analysis. The main focus of the analysis lies in the differences of how reading and digital reading are explored in relation to their capacity to address the reduction of inequalities, especially, digital inequalities, what kind of interventions have been used and what methods have been applied in various settings.

    Results. The results of the literature analysis are mapped onto the matrix including the concepts of two theories: social cognitive theory and the levels of digital divide to identify those nodes crucial to the planned digital reading interventions.

    Conclusion. Digital reading interventions are successful in increasing digital literacy and general literacy skills. The most significant achievement is in the groups with the lowest or absent literacy skills. It may mean that disadvantaged groups with moderate literacy levels may need different digital reading interventions to reach a breakthrough. The digital reading research has extended the concept of reading into the area of device manipulation, navigation within the text and searching of digital texts that brings it closer to information seeking and digital literacy issues.

    The case of the e/book in “small language” culture: media technology and the digital society2014Inngår i: Knygotyra, ISSN 0204-2061, E-ISSN 2345-0053, Vol. 62, s. 73-93Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The article describes a research project conducted in Sweden and its initial base-line results that were produced by investigating statistical data from general statistical sources, representative surveys of the Swedish population, and from public and academic libraries. The project looks into the change introduced into the book sector by e-books. Sweden was chosen as a special case – a country with a high literacy level and high penetration of information technology into everyday life of people. At the same time, the spread of e-books is at the very start and it seems that the diffusion of e-books, their production, distribution and use are affected by the problems characteristic of a typical small publishing markets. The authors present the goals of the project and the theoretical framework. The data were collected in 2012 and demonstrate the relatively low scale of e-book publishing and use. Libraries emerge as the main channel of access to e-books for readers. The usual problems of e-book production and distribution that are visible in other countries are observed in Sweden as well: e-books legally are not books, but services of licensed software and thus excluded from the privileges enjoyed by paper books; readers demand more e-books but are not ready to pay for them the same price as for traditional books and prefer to acquire them through free channels. Publishers seek to maintain the monopoly of e-book distribution and fear piracy. Libraries lose independence of acquisition and collection management. The choice of e-books by readers is determined by access to technology, age and education as well as reading habits.

    Book selling and e-books in Sweden2015Inngår i: Libellarium: journal for the research of writing, books, and cultural heritage institutions, ISSN 1846-9213, Vol. 8, nr 1, s. 15-29Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the issue of the understanding of the book-selling situation as Swedish booksellers see it. It pursues the answers to the following questions:1. What are the perceptions of Swedish booksellers of the impact of e-books on their business?2. What drivers are important for Swedish booksellers for adopting and developing e-book sales through their own sales channels?3. What do they perceive as barriers to e-book selling through their own channels?The authors have employed the analysis of the secondary statistical data and a survey of Swedish booksellers to answer their questions. The results of the investigation have shown that the Swedish booksellers do not feel their bookshops, or business in general, are threatened by e-books. The opinions on e-books do not differ between the few selling e-books and others who do not offer this product. The reasons for selling e-books are well-functioning routines and personal interest in the product. The reasons for not selling the books are the lack of demand and technical resources as well as contractual agreements with e-book publishers or vendors. So, technical resources for e-book sales, routines, and contracts with publishers are the main premises for this activity.The biggest barriers to e-book sales are: a) the price as one can see not only in the answers of the booksellers, but also in the drop of sales obviously related to the rise of prices during 2014; b) lack of demand from customers who do not enquire about e-books in bookshops. This leads to the belief that e-books will be sold mostly online either directly from publishers and authors or through online booksellers. However, an equal number of booksellers believe that physical bookshops will be selling printed books and e-books in the future. The future of e-books seems to be quite secure and non-threatening to printed books from the point of view of booksellers. The growth of e-book sales is quite slow and the respondents believe that it will increase at a moderate rate.

    Straipsnyje aprašomas tyrimas grindžiamas statistine institucinės talpyklos duomenų bazės ir reglamentuojančiųjų universiteto dokumentų analize, interviu su universiteto vadovais ir aktyviais mokslininkais duomenimis bei universiteto mokslininkų atsakymų į anketą analize. Tyrimo rezultatai rodo, kad Švedijos universiteto leidybinė politika orientuojama į kuo didesnį universiteto matomumą mokslinėje komunikacijoje, atvirosios prieigos kūrimą ir per ją prieinamų dokumentų kokybės užtikrinimą bei mokslinin - kų atsakomybės už leidinių ir duomenų apie juos kokybę didinimą. Tačiau tiriamo universiteto mokslininkų žinios apie leidybos procesus, atvirosios prieigos galimybes, autorių teisių perdavimo pasekmes bei kitus su šiuolaiki - ne moksline komunikacija susijusius procesus bei reiškinius yra gana ribotos. Norint sėkmingai įgyvendinti universiteto leidybinės politikos nuostatas, būtina mokslininkus nuolat šviesti ir konsultuoti šiais klausimais. Tai galėtų būti natūrali universiteto bibliotekos funkcija, pratęsianti jos darbą su insti - tucine talpykla bei informacinio raštingumo ugdymu.

    E-books in Swedish public libraries: policy implications2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aims of the paper are: review the situation of e-books delivery in the Swedish public libraries (as it looked at the end of 2012); identify the barriers that public libraries encounter in providing access to e-books; highlight the policy-related problems of e-book provision through public libraries. A survey was carried out in October, 2012 of all public libraries in Sweden. 291 questionnaires were issued. 185 were completed, response rate was 63.3%. The provision of an e-book service has arisen as a result of either demand or an ideological belief that the ethos of democratic values and equality of access requires libraries to offer material in all media. Librarians find the situation of e-books provision through libraries unsatisfactory: the provider of titles removes them from the catalogue without warning or explanation, there are too few titles for children and students, and access to popular titles is delayed.

    Digital means for reducing digital inequality: Literature review2018Inngår i: Informing Science, ISSN 1547-9684, E-ISSN 1521-4672, s. 269-287, artikkel-id ISJv21p269-286Maceviciute4998Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to identify the possibilities for reducing the second and third levels of the digital divide (or inequality) through conscious application of digital technologies, especially through the promotion of digital means for information, enlightenment, and entertainment. The literature review confirms the connection of different levels of digital divide with other relational and structural inequalities. It provides insights into the strengths and weaknesses of digital interventions aimed at the reduction of digital inequalities. Their success depends on the consideration of the context and participants needs as well as on carefully planned strategies.

    Evaluating the SHAMAN Digital Preservation Framework for memory institutions2010Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract. The paper falls under the category Digital preservation and access management. The aim of the paper is to present the approach to evaluating the EU SHAMAN (Sustaining Heritage Access through Multivalent ArchiviNg) project outcomes from the point of view of the needs and requirements of the memory institutions. The complex approach to the evaluation of the outcomes is defined by the complexity of the projects goals. The evaluation and assessment design draws upon earlier evaluation of digital repositories and other projects in the area of digital preservation. The evaluation has to be carried out from the perspective of the representatives of research and development community, the memory organizations such as libraries, archives and museums, the end-users of technology, such as librarians, curators and archivists and the end-users of preserved materials, such as researchers, educators and artists. Quantitative and qualitative data collection tools and methods are constructed for the use in the assessment process. The particular requirements that memory institutions have for longterm digital preservation systems are taken into account.

    Evaluating the SHAMAN framework by memory and industrial engineering institutions2011Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    "Digital preservation" is revealed by our work as a non-unitary concept: it depends upon what is digitised, the period over which the preserved material is anticipated to be of use, and the future end uses to which it is believed the material may be put. Clearly, memory institutions have the longest view, since they are the storehouses of reserved physical materials from, in some cases, hundreds of years in the past. However, even here, question of which institutions need to retain digital archives and which may draw upon those archives is a significant question. On the other hand, our work in industry suggests that the useful time period over which digital objects may be seen as useful will depend mainly upon two factors: the lifetime of a product and legal requirements for preservation. In the case of TV sets, the production lifetime is quite limited, with new models coming out every two or three years, but in the case of health products from the same organization, legal requirements relating, for example, to testing may require records to be maintained for a much longer period of time. Even then, the expenditure has to be justified by the business benefits.

    Information behaviour research and information systems development: the SHAMAN project, an example of collaboration2010Inngår i: Information research, ISSN 1368-1613, E-ISSN 1368-1613, Vol. 15, nr 4Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Goal. The aim of the paper is to demonstrate the role that information behaviour research may play in information system design. Theory. The paper explores the value of use cases in defining information requirements and considers their wider application in information behaviour research. Method. An analysis of the literature on long-term digital preservation systems (and, to a degree, digital libraries) is used as well as analysis of interviews undertaken in the course of the SHAMAN project. These interviews fall into the category of contextual inquiry as an explicit step for understanding who the customers really are and how they work on a day-to-day basis. Results. Four broad categories of needs in long term preservation are identified in literature: society at large, which has requirements for long-term preservation; organizational requirements; organizational staff who must operate the preservation system, undertaking the functions of ingest, access and delivery to end-users; end-users who need to draw upon the digital resource to help them with their work, study or research. The Universal Modelling Language with stereotypical actors and use cases offers information behaviour researchers a way to engage with system developers in a creative synergy.

    Delphi investigation into the research needs in Swedish librarianship2009Inngår i: Information research, ISSN 1368-1613, E-ISSN 1368-1613, Vol. 14, nr 4Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. Reports the conduct of a national survey in Sweden to establish the desired research priorities for libraries. The research sought to establish what evidence-base is needed for evidence-based practice. Method. The Delphi method was employed to solicit opinions on the kinds of research needed by libraries of all kinds in Sweden. Research topics were obtained from practising librarians and identified in the professional literature and discussion lists. Two rounds of questionnaire survey using the sixty-four themes extracted were followed by an interactive workshop. Panel members were nominated by the practitioners themselves. Analysis. Standard statistical methods were employed to derive means and standard deviations and the Spearman rank correlation statistic was used to compare the results from different library sectors. Results. Consensus among panel members was not achieved during the survey rounds, but the workshop resulted in the identification of the ten highest priority themes. The public, regional and school libraries are more concerned with relation of libraries to education and society at large, while academic and special libraries emphasize the changes in scholarly and business communication and the impact of new technologies. Conclusions. The consensus among different Swedish library sectors regarding the top research agenda can be reached only conditionally. Strong differences between them remain and have to be taken into account when implementing the agenda. The panel members regard the library future as uncertain and prioritize the topics that can help to foster readers and library users and strengthen strategic positions of libraries.

    Evaluation of Learning Objects from the User's Perspective: The Case of the EURIDICE Service2008Inngår i: Interdisciplinary Journal of Knowledge and Learning Objects, ISSN 1552-2210, E-ISSN 1552-2237, Vol. 4, s. 83-95Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We describe a project to evaluate an image database within an educational context. The partners in the EURIDICE project were educational institutions in a number of countries, together with other agencies and one commercial partner. Input to the database was provided by the commercial partner, a public library, and state archives. Evaluation was guided through a workshop in which all institutions participated to ensure comparability of data across the Project. Specific attention was paid to the needs of sight impaired students. The results indicated that the image database was considered to be of value for teaching and learning, but required further work to make it a fully viable system. In particular, the scope of the database needed to be expanded and the retrieval mechanisms improved

    Information behaviour in research network building by relocated scholars in Swedish higher education: a report on a pilot project2008Inngår i: Information research, ISSN 1368-1613, E-ISSN 1368-1613, Vol. 13, nr 4Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. A pilot investigation is reported into the information behaviour of scholars relocating to Sweden in building their research networks. Method. Using activity theory as a conceptual framework for the study, structured interviews (using mainly open questions) were carried out with eight scholars in different disciplines and institutions. The resulting data were analysed using the qualitative analysis package Atlas. ti. Results. Information systems and technologies play little part in the information behaviour of relocated scholars in building, or re-building, their research support networks. Integration into the academic institution is easier than integration into Swedish society and language issues arise mainly in respect of the latter. Conclusion. Re-located scholars adopt interpersonal communication as the dominant information behaviour in building their research networks. They are aided, in Sweden, by the generally welcoming and supportive atmosphere of their departments (although one respondent in the social sciences noted problems of conflict), but experience difficulty in establishing social networks within Swedish society.

    A Delphi study of research needs for Swedish libraries2009Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The Delphi technique has been used to systematically map the opinions on research needs of Swedish librarians. The study shows that what is considered relevant research is dependent on what kind of library operation the respondent works in. The highest priority is accorded to factors affecting strategic development, followed by the changing roles of libraries in their communities and the impact of library programmes on learning and transferable skills, but the results vary greatly between groups. The study is now an important foundation for the formulation of research questions and enhanced cooperation. The report plays an important role in those areas, but is also methodologically interesting as it gives a good description of how the Delphi technique can be used and of its constituent stages.

    Shaman: D14.3 - Report on demonstration and evaluation activity in the domain of industrial design and engineering2011Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    1. The report is accounting for the demonstration and evaluation of ISP2, which was designed to demonstrate the potential of the SHAMAN framework for digital preservation in the context of industrial design and engineering companies and for the research and development community. 2. The demonstration process was carried out by means of presentation based on screen-casts in Philips Consumer Lifestyle division the Audio, Video, Multimedia and Accessories business area members. They were typical members of a consumer organization and were involved in engineering or middle management work in the company, one was an intern. 3. The evaluation is based on the report of a focus group held in Philips‟s Eindhoven headquarters. It is supplemented with structured data from self-completed questionnaires, administered on the same occasions. However, the level of participation in the focus group was low as three out of nine intended participants withdrew because of more pressing duties on the morning of the event. Therefore, the data show only the individual opinions. However, the evaluation methods were successful in delivering useful information for the preparation of this deliverable. 4. Participants pointed out that, although their needs for digital preservation were limited, other business areas in the division were more likely to have greater needs, for example, the Health and Wellness area, which had legal obligations to retain data. The theoretical justification for the SHAMAN framework appeared to be of little interest to them. The primary requirement they had of software was that it should „save the time of the engineer‟. The elements resembling the optimum system, i.e., those that accepted a document or design and then automatically extracted all the necessary metadata to enable it to be found and used in the future, were favoured most. The participants found some features of the demonstrator, such as the Open Conjurer module and the concept of „terminology evolution‟ particularly appealing. 5. It is quite evident that the SHAMAN framework is applicable to the domain, and it is also evident that the key factors that will make digital preservation in general a requirement will depend very much on the nature of the business. The area of audio and video appliances does not need a very long-term preservation because of the rather short lifetime of an individual product. However, even here, in a different business area, relating to health and well-being, legal requirements necessitate a much longer period of preservation for documents and their need for digital preservation will be much greater. 6. Evaluation has also been performed to determine the project‟s impact on the R&D community by means of submission and rejection rates of papers to journals and conferences, and bibliometric and Webometric analyses. The results demonstrate that the research outputs from the project are of interest to the R&D community and that the impact of the project as a whole compares favourably with other European projects in the digital preservation area. 7. The evaluation has revealed strengths and shortcomings in the demonstration process, which will influence the further development of demonstrators for all three SHAMAN domains of interest. The SHAMAN framework for digital preservation is seen as offering new possibilities and interesting approaches to information capturing and re-use by the practitioners in industrial design and engineering companies.

    Assessing the graphic questionnaire used in digital literacy training.2019Inngår i: Issues in Informing Science and Information Technology, ISSN 1547-5840, E-ISSN 1547-5867, ISSN 1547-5840, Vol. 16, s. 113-126Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim/Purpose: To capture digital training experiences, the paper introduces a novel data collection method – a graphic questionnaire. It aims to demonstrate the opportunities and limitations of this tool for collecting feedback from socially disadvantaged participants of digital literacy training about their progress.Background: In training of digital skills for disadvantaged audiences through informal educational interventions, it is important to get sufficient knowledge on factors that lead to their progress in the course of training. There are many tools to measure the achievements of formal education participants, but assessing the effectiveness of informal digital skills training is researched less. The paper introduces a small-scale case study of the training programme aimed at the developing of reading and digital skills among the participants from three socially disadvantaged groups – people with hearing impairments, children from low income families, and elderly persons. The impact of the training on participants was evaluated using different tools, including a short graphic questionnaire to capture the perceptions of the participants after each training.Methodology: We performed a thematic analysis of graphic questionnaires collected after each training session to determine how the students perceived their progress in developing literacy and digital skills.Contribution The findings of the paper can assist in designing assessment of digital literacy programmes that focus not only on final results, but also on the process of gaining digital skills and important factors that facilitate progress.Findings: The graphic questionnaire allowed the researchers to get insights into the perception of acquired skills and progressive achievements of the participants through rich self-reports of attitudes, knowledge gained, and activities during training sessions. However, the graphic questionnaire format did not allow the collection of data about social interaction and cooperation that could be important in learning.

    SHAMAN D14.4: Report on demonstration and evaluation activity in the domain of e-science2011Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    1. This deliverable reports on the demonstration and evaluation of ISP3, which was designed to demonstrate the potential of the SHAMAN framework for digital preservation in the context of e-science institutions and for the research and development community. 2. The demonstration process was carried out by means of presentations of the training material to the scientists from LNEC and LIP in Lisbon, Portugal. The audiences for the demonstrations consisted of scientists working with different data and IT support staff. 3. The evaluation is based on the reports of focus groups held with two groups of scientists, together with structured data from self-completed questionnaires, administered on the same occasions. 4. The SHAMAN 'consciousness raising' event appears to have had useful consequences. In both institutions it appeared to fulfil the aim of drawing attention to the problems of digital preservation and to the role of the SHAMAN framework in finding answers to the problems. To a degree, the participants were already sympathetic to the ideas, since they were working in situations that daily brought their attention to the need for preservation policies. However, the discussions were also useful in extending the concept of digital preservation beyond the existing perceptions within the SHAMAN teams. In particular, the notion of the 'digital object' needs to be expanded to include not only digitized physical objects such as documents and images, but also 'born digital' phenomena such as data streams, software programs and analytical results of experiments.

    Library user studies for strategic planning2014Inngår i: Proceedings of ISIC, the Information Behaviour Conference, Leeds, 2-5 September, 2014: Part 1, University of Sheffield , 2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. There are five county public libraries in Lithuania with specific functions in the state library system. A research project LiBiTOP was conducted to identify directions of their strategic divelopment. Case studies of each library were carried out to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Library user satisfaction with library service were part of these case studies. Goal. The aim of this paper is to reflect on the data of usage of library services and user satisfaction for outlining the directions of strategic development of the county public libraries in Lithuania. The data used for the purposes of this article is only part of a larger qualitative and quantitative data collected for the LiBiTOP project. Method. Statistical data of library activities was provided by libraries for the latest five years. User satisfaction was surveyed using a questionnaire in all five county public libraries in Lithuania. The questionnaire was based on other user satisfaction tools, especially, the SCONUL Satisfaction Survey for library services. Analysis. Descriptive statistics were used to make sense of two sets of data (usage statistics and user questionnaire) for each library case study. Results. Results show that the usage of county public library services and collections is inadequate. The percentage of target group reached is very low. User satisfaction is expressed as high and very high, however, the data depicting the actual use of services under evaluation reveal which library services are not used or demanded by users. Conclusions. A number of strategic development possibilities were outlined for the county public libraries in Lithuania using data of users' survey and usage statistics. They were used to formulate recommendations on further development of Lithuanian public libraries for the law-makers, governmental bodies, and library managers.

    The case of the e-book in "small language" culture: media technology and the digital society2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskningen genomförs i samarbete mellan GU (Institutionen för journalistik, medier och kommunikation) och Högskolan i Borås (Institutionen Bibliotekshögskolan/ biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap). Finansiering genom VR under Rambidrag: Det digitaliserade samhället – igår, idag, imorgon. Forskningsprogrammet är inriktat på studier av e-bokens faktiska och möjliga effekter för författande, publicering, distribution och användning i Sverige. Forskningen är angelägen mot bakgrund av en snabb ökning av publicerade e-böcker, ökad efterfrågan från läsare, fler läsapparater som Ipad samt snabbt ökande lån av e-böcker från biblioteken. Sverige ligger tidigt i spridningsprocessen, särskilt i jämförelse med USA, där en betydligt större andel av läsarna använder e-böcker. Samtidigt är bokläsning som sådan aktuell bland annat mot bakgrund av ungas minskande lästid och sjunkande läsförståelse. Sverige har speciella förutsättningar för e-böcker med en begränsad marknad för svenska språket samtidigt goda språkkunskaper och omfattande IT-användning. Detta innebär en annan situation än för de engelskspråkiga länderna och ger ur forskningssynpunkt möjligheter att belysa intressanta frågor om hur bokindustrin i Sverige kommer att möta globaliseringens effekter, vilka faktorer som verkar under introduktionsfasen och hur olika aktörer verkar under den fortsatta spridningen. Den teoretiska ramen för studierna innehåller bland annat en modell över innovationsprocessen från Winston som särskilt framhåller innovationers framväxt från tidiga prototyper , förekomsten av sociala och ekonomiska faktorer som gör innovationen ”socialt nödvändig” och effekter av faktorer som verkar återhållande på innovationers ”radikala potential”. Modellen kompletteras av Bourdieu´s fältteori för analyser av maktrelationer mellan olika aktörer inom fältet. Forskningsmetoderna innefattar personliga intervjuer med författare, förlagschefer och bokhandlare; fokusgruppintervjuer med bibliotekarier och läsare samt frågor i nationella survey-undersökningar i samarbete med SOM-institutet och Nordicom. All datainsamling i projektet sker enligt VR:s etiska riktlinjer.

    The tensions of e-book creation and distribution in a small-language culture2015Inngår i: Northern Lights, ISSN 1601-829X, Vol. 13, nr 1, s. 29-47Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We report on research in progress on the e-book phenomenon in Sweden, the aim of which is to explore the impact of the e-book at every stage, from authorship, through publishing, library lending and bookselling to readership. Here two aspects of the research are covered, the attitudes of authors and publishers towards e-books, to demonstrate the ‘early adoption’ stage of the e-book in the Swedish market. Interviews with authors reveal that most regard e-books favourably, although most of those who have a contract with publishers see it as a by-product of print publishing. Most authors do not have much experience in e-book publishing or self-publishing. The survey of publishers reveals ambivalence towards e-books and in their relationships with libraries and booksellers. The main ‘drivers’ in the uptake of e-books are consumers’ demands for portable, convenient formats and the search for more economic solutions to the provision of textbooks.

    Tensions and contradictions in the information behaviour of board members of a voluntary organization2008Inngår i: Information Research, ISSN 1386-1613, Vol. 13, nr 4Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. A study of the information behaviour of members of the Boards of the Swedish voluntary organization, Youth for Peace, is reported. The focus is on the tensions and contradictions arising out of organizational values and other factors. Method. Observation, interviews and the analysis of organizational documents were employed within the conceptual framework of activity theory. Predominantly qualitative data were gathered. Analysis. Qualitative analysis, using Atlas. ti, was carried out on the interview transcripts and other materials. Results. The study revealed a range of contradictions and tensions arising out of organizational values, the voluntary character of the organization and the life characteristics of Board members. Conclusion. The contradictions that arise in voluntary organizations affect their ability to effectively manage and exchange information between Board members and between Boards and the ordinary members. However, the values of 'doing their own thing', 'flexibility' and 'equality' helped to achieve one of the main goals of a voluntary youth organization: practical acquisition of basic information skills related to participation in a democratic body. The efficiency of information seeking and production was sacrificed, but every member of the Board had a possibility to learn a variety of jobs by hands-on practice.
