Abstract [en]

The purpose of this bachelor's thesis is to see how public libraries have adopted the new e-book readers and how the libraries think the e-readers will affect them in the future. There are three different theories in this study which are used to see how the e-book reader influences the libraries as an innovation and as a remediation from the paper book as well as its evolution. The authors have used four qualitative interviews where they have tried to find the most relevant librarians for the purpose. It was found that all the libraries in the study think that they need to learn about the e-reader and its functions to be able to understand users’ needs, but they haven´t agreed if they should have the e-reader as a library loan. The staff seems to think that the e-reader is a good innovation but some criticism has arisen, like the fact that there are technical issues. The libraries hope for more beneficial licenses as the e-book market grows since they today pay a relatively high amount for every downloaded e-book. This can also become an issue when the budget is made.
