Biosketch: Dr. Jenny Lindberg

I am a lecturer at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science, University of Borås. Since 2002 I have been teaching courses on information literacy and professional information practices, among others. In June 2015 I defended my dissertation which presents a study on Library and information science (LIS) students’ and academic librarians' information seeking practices, viewed as part of their shaping of occupational identities in the transition between higher education and work life.

Current research activities/projects

I started my research activities in the previous research project BIKT (Library, ICT and Learning) within LearnIT, and today I am associated to the research program LinCS.

The title of my dissertation is Att bli bibliotekarie: Informationssökning och yrkesidentiteter hos B&I-studenter och nyanställda högskolebibliotekarier (Learning librarianship: Information seeking and professional identities among LIS students and novice academic librarians). Two empirical studies were conducted: focus group interviews with Library and information science students and in-depth interviews with practicing academic librarians. My work was supervised by Professor Louise Limberg and Professor Elena Maceviciute.

Current research interests are directed towards the discursive shaping of professional identities and the information practices of professionals.
