Librarians and Teachers opportunities for collaboration (English)
Abstract [sv]

The school library is currently an issue of debate in Swedish politics as well as in media. What classifies as a school library? What is the role of the library in society?

In January 2014 the Swedish law that regulates public as well as School libraries, was rewritten. The new law text contains new paragraphs concerning the libraries role as a source for knowledge, as an institution that should act for a free opinion formation and democratization. The new law also enjoins libraries to strengthen the status of literature. The new law clearly allows School libraries to adopt a more prominent role in pupil’s education.

This essays intent is to investigate Librarians and Teachers opportunities for collaboration on a organizational as well as individual level from a phenomenological approach. Secondary the essay also aim to investigate what the implementation of the rewritten law means for this collaboration. The method used for this essay is close interviews with two experienced teachers and two librarians.

The result suggests that both librarians and teachers consider school libraries to benefit pupils inclination to read and motivation to learn, however both the librarians and the teachers have experienced organizational flaws that interfere with collaboration. These flaws sometimes consist of extraneous factors such as how the library is organized but more frequent budget and time constraints. In addition to this, on an individual level, preconceived notions toward each others profession and also school culture can be just as incapacitating for collaboration.

The individual’s own desire and will to put some additional effort into the collaboration often is the most crucial part for it to succeed. And when collaboration succeeds, all participants of this essay agree that the quality of the education is enhanced and the collaboration itself can serve as a time saving agreement
