Att göra analoga objekt digitala: En kvalitativ studie om digitaliseringsprocessen i ett bibliotek
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Contemporary libraries face challenges in transforming their organization to meet the digitalized society. To develop the process of digitization of literature is a natural way for libraries to go when they already have more visitors online than physically. Since the demand for digital material is so sought after, we feel challenged to address the challenges of the Internet as an emerging functional medium for distributing knowledge. These developments will be able to significantly modify the nature of literature as well as the existing system of quality assurance. In this study, we explored and analyzed a digitization project at a research library. We have also examined the relationship between digitization process and its different elements. To view at such a problem from a system-theoretical approach enables boundaries, where we could create a mental model that is useful for our case and us. By originate from a maximum theoretical flow based on the hardware, we hope to see the stages of the process that do not achieve the same capacity as the hardware. To accomplish this and to get a detailed understanding we used a qualitative approach, where we have conducted observations and combined it with participant’s interviews from the examined library.
