Ike Iswary Lawanda

Abstract


It is about behavior through the implementation of ICT in a university library that comes up with the issue of redefining library organization culture. The program and project in a university library emerge the inspiration to overview librarian cultures as a study of microcospic within the macrocospic perspective. The resistance on ICT of university librarians is an important topic as it makes resistance significant to the meaning of ICT in library for librarians; and the implementation of ICT to the librarians build up and preserve the individuals and the members of library as a community. The objective is to explain the dynamic of librarians in a complex organization that have been abruptly urged by ICT implementation. The methodology of the research focused on 60 librarians observed and interviewed within participant-observation method. The finding is that the symbolic behavior, as a form of resistance of the staff and librarian to the implementation of ICT in university library, does not only mean to aim the domination. It means significantly as bonding of the relations between staff and librarians. The bonds strengthen the spirit of all to reach the goal of the library.
