dc.description.abstractThis thesis studies academic reading practices through the use of, Docear, a new software program with a module that combines PDF and mind mapping technologies. Five in-depth Skype interviews designed to reveal situated uses of Docear were conducted. The author’s experience as an academic librarian serves in investigating the surrounding “infrastructure of relations” and has a reflexive role in the analysis. Actor Network Theory (ANT) and Science and Technology Studies (STS) form a theoretical and methodological basis. The analysis looks at digital libraries from a perspective of things virtual (potential) versus actual. Findings reveal new technologically-assisted practices related to keeping, annotating, reading, and structuring digital literature that employ visual mapping and where space is replaced by connection. The fragmentation of text and need for structure in academic reading practices are seen from within of a changed physical arena. Credence is given to the potency of making academic publications compatible to a mind mapping program like Docear.eng
