Optimization of Academic library (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det akademiska biblioteket utgör en viktig del av studentens studietid som en tillhandahållare av vetenskaplig litteratur. De senaste decenniernas digitalisering har förändrat biblioteket i grunden. I takt med att mer tryckt material övergår i elektronisk form i databaser blir beroendet av fysiska medier mindre. Intresset för uppgiften har sin förankring i att balansera detta förhållande genom en lukrativ gestaltning av det fysiska studierummet. Det skall vara en plats som bidrar till att studenter känner sig såväl avslappnade som motiverade för att fullfölja sina skoluppgifter. En implementering av detta gjordes i form av ett ombyggnadsförslag för utbildningen Byggteknik & Designs befintliga lokaler på Kungliga Teknisk Högskolan. 

I samband med utredningen om hur dagens akademiska bibliotek ser ut besöktes ett antal sådana i Stockholmsområdet med intervjuer bland personal. Vid studiebesöken undersöktes principiella frågor som rör studiemiljön, ombyggnader och studenters beteendemönster. Sådan information tillät oss att identifiera vissa av biblioteksmiljöns problemområden, för att därefter kunna lösa dessa. 

Med användning av gällande riktlinjer och standarder utarbetades en arbetsmiljö som ger rätt förutsättningar för aktivitetsbaserade studier. Det gäller exempelvis noggrann planering av artificiell ljussättning. Likaså var förhållning till naturligt ljus viktig, och genom Svensk standardkrav för dagsljusinsläpp kunde dess inverkan på bibliotekslokalen kontrolleras. Detta är exempel på arbetet med att utnyttja och förbättra lokalens egenskaper ur ett arkitektoniskt perspektiv.

Abstract [en]

The academic library is an important aspect of a students education as it contributes to providing scientific literature. Contemporary society has led to the digitalisation of educational media. Consequently, libraries are becoming more reliant upon the usage of electronic databases as opposed to the usage of printed materials. The interest in the task is rooted in our desire to create an environment where students feel both relaxed and motivated to carry out educational tasks. An implementation of this was done in the form of a rebuilding proposal for the Building Engineering and Design existing facilities of Royal Institute of Technology.

Our investigation consisted of conducting interviews with staff members from a variety of academic libraries in Stockholm area to gain a useful insight upon the concerns and fundamental issues which many of these members have. Such information allowed us to identify problems in regards to library settings and thereafter overcome it.

Using current guidelines and standards, a work environment was developed that provides the right conditions for activity-based studies. This applies, for example, to careful planning of artificial light. The relation to natural light was also important, and by Swedish standard requirements for daylight emitting, its influence on the library room could be controlled. Thus we see an example of utilizing and improving the characteristics of the facility from an architectural perspective.
