Description
日本の人口における65歳以上の高齢者の割合は年々増加しており、高齢者への対応の取り組みが社会の様々なところで始まっている。図書館でも高齢者サービスの充実が期待されているが、図書館資料の形成方法と高齢者への提供方法の確立は重要な課題の一つである。しかしながら、これまで選書や読書支援等、サービス提供側の図書館についての研究は数多くあるが、高齢者がどのような理由で資料を選ぶのかという利用者の立場からの研究はほとんど行われていない。そこで本研究では、高齢者の資料選択の特徴を明らかにすることを目的とする。本調査では、高齢者と大学生に実際に図書館で自由に資料を選んでもらい、その理由をインタビューで尋ねた。調査の結果、高齢者特有の資料選択行動をいくつか明らかにすることができた。
The proportion of adults who are 65 years and older in Japan's population is increasing, and initiatives for supporting the elderly are on the rise in many social fields. Although libraries are also expected to provide full service for the elders, a major obstacle to this effort emerges in the establishment of effective methods for the development of an appropriate collection of material suited to the seniors' preferences. Although research on the selection of books and on readers' advisory has been conducted by many libraries, there has barely been any research done from the point of view of the reader and as to why the elderly choose the materials they do. With this in mind, the current study investigates the information behavior of aging readers from the point of view of material selection and aims to understand the underlying characteristics of the choices they make. For this study, older adults and university students were asked to freely select materials at a library and were interviewed about their decisions. Ultimately, the study was able to clarify some information selection actions specific to older adults.
