|Abstract: ||The purpose of this study is to investigate how students in a Swedish
junior high school (grade 7-9) view their possibility to participate in the
collection management of their school library, and how the school
library works to involve the students when purchasing media. The study
has resulted in a model for easy and effective involvement of students
in the collection development.
To achieve this aim both quantitative and qualitative methods are used.
A survey in three classes in the school, observations at the school
library and a qualitative interview with the library assistant have been
performed. The collection management at the school library is
described using the School Library Taxonomies developed by David
Loertscher and two models for participation developed by Roger A Hart
and Harry Shier. In the survey, the students are asked about their library
and reading habits, their perception of their own participation in the
collection management of the library and their opinions of the
importance of student participation in the library.
The results show that all students view the possibility of participation as something important, but not all of the students are willing to be active themselves. The proposed model for effective involvement of students in the library focuses on simplicity, voluntariness, distinct information and visible results.|
