Abstract [en]

Research  topic/Aim:  The  aim  is  to  illuminate  the  pedagogical  role  of  librarians  teaching  and   supporting  students  learning  of  seeking  information  with  aim  to  deepen  their  thesis  and  to  examine   the  two  concepts  ‘teach’  and  ‘show’  which  both  university  lecturers  and  librarians  do.    Theoretical  frameworks:  The  theoretical  starting  point  in  our  discussion  of  pedagogy  and   librarians,  concepts  and  ways  of  seeing  and  explaining  things,  is  based  on  the  phenomenological   method  of  understanding  the  world.  Methodology/research  design:  There  are  two  studies  included  in  the  paper,  both  are  based  on   qualitative  interviews  and  observations.  Expected  conclusions/Findings:  The  studies  show  two  interesting  things,  firstly  there  is  a  problem   in  the  relationship  between  university  lecturer  and  librarians,  as  an  embarrassment,  secondly  it   reveals  differences  between  showing  and  teaching.  Teaching  is  about  to  explain,  and  explain  how  to   understand  something,  ie,  trying  to  convey  a  way  of  relating  to  attain  knowledge.  But  what  is  to   show,  and  what  are  the  differences  between  them?  Perhaps  it  is  so  that  a  lot  of  the  lecturer’s   activities  with  the  students  also  have  the  character  of  to  show  rather  than  to  teach.  Often,  lecturers   have  to  show  students  how  to  use  word  processing,  how  to  search  in  databases,  how  to  use  Dropbox   and  Google  Docs,  etc.,  to  make  documents  available  to  each  other.  These  things  we  are  showing,   students  todays  often  lacking  knowledge  about.  It  seems  that  both  librarians  as  lecturers  and   teachers  both  teach  and  show  in  their  respective  businesses.  Both  categories  performing  both   teaching  and  showing.  Probably  teach  teachers  more  and  show  less  and  vice  versa  for  librarians.  But   many  librarians  still  teach  more  than  they  show.  To  continue  to  develop  librarians  teaching  work,   there  are  several  approaches.  The  Department  of  Education  (UTV)  in  Härnösand  Mid  Sweden   University,  conduct  a  development  project  to  give  information  seeking  a  deeper  role  in  teacher   education  programs,  together  with  the  University  Library.  University  librarians  at  Mid  Sweden   University  Library  has  developed  a  plan  of  progression  with  the  aim  to  give  information  retrieval,   educational  media  monitoring,  reference  management  and  source  criticism,  should  run  as  a  red   thread  through  the  hole  teaching  training  education.  Course  coordinating  teachers  have  worked  to   develop  elements  in  the  courses  where  these  above-­‐mentioned  parts  in  the  plan  of  progression  in   one  way  or  another  are  included.  We  think  that  a  teacher  and  a  librarian  carry  out  students'  first   education  in  information  seeking  together.  Together,  university  teachers  and  librarians  can  provide   support  for  the  students  at  their  first  meeting  with  information  retrieval.  We  see  it  as  important  that   the  education  of  students  in  information  retrieval  is  cross-­‐border  cooperation  between  teachers  and   librarians.  Relevance  for  Nordic  Educational  Research:  The  subject  has  a  Swedish  educational  context  and   is  concerning  student  teaching  situations  at  Swedish  universities.
