Abstract [sv]

Samhällsutvecklingen rullar på men bibliotek bestå ..? I år läggs för första gången en nationell svensk biblioteksstrategi fram för riksdagen. För vem har detta betydelse, och på vilket sätt? Enligt 2018 års SOM-data fortsätter den svenska allmänheten besöka bibliotek i relativt oförändrad grad. Likaså bedöms förtroendet för bibliotek vara fortsatt högt. Precis som tidigare år syns ett samband mellan biblioteksbesök och internetanvändning, men sambandet ser olika ut beroende på vad användaren gör på internet. Samtidigt visar tidigare studier att olika grupper använder bibliotek i olika stor utsträckning beroende på ålder, utbildningsgrad och boendeort. I detta SOMkapitel riktar vi fokus mot bibliotekens användare men vi ser bortom de variabler som vanligtvis brukar inkluderas – vilka är användarna bortom sin ålder, utbildningsgrad och boendeort? Vilka aktiviteter ägnar de sig åt? Vilka politiska preferenser har de? Och vilken inställning har de till sin omgivning?

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to create knowledge on national cultural policies directed at children. The research questions are about standpoints and arguments in national cultural policies directed at children in Sweden, Norway and England, and identified similarities and differences among these standpoints. The focus is on rhetorics of national cultural policy. A comparative method is applied and the empirical material consists of a small selection of governmental documents. The analysis reveals some variations in standpoints and arguments on national cultural policies directed at children. One example is different approaches to national identity in the documents; in this respect Sweden differs from both other Nordic countries and from England in not claiming any national identity. The approaches to childhood are also different according to the empirical documents. Finally policy for children’s culture as politics of recognition is shortly discussed.

Abstract [en]

Purpose. The purpose of this article is to study how public libraries argue for the inclusion of non-traditional library collections and to identify public library objectives related to these collections. Design/methodology/approach. The data was collected through a Web survey which was sent to public library managers in all Swedish municipalities. Data were analyzed using a model in which public library practices are divided into three categories relating to the public library’s goals, activities and tools. Findings. Three different main arguments are used to support the introduction of non-traditional collections: as a contribution to public library goals or activities to attract non-users and as the result of external requests or needs. Through analysis of the survey results, the public library’s common goal, a socially sustainable society, was identified. Other library goals identified were an environmentally sustainable society and an improved library. Practical implications. The results may inspire practitioners to reflect upon how non-traditional collections are related to library goals and activities and what consequences their inclusion may have for the library. For example, if non-traditional collections are used only to attract new users, there is a risk of creating expectations that the library cannot live up to. Originality/value. Today, focus is placed on the conditions for public libraries in the digital world. It is easy to overlook the importance of non-traditional library collections, and the role they fulfill. This article draws attention to these collections and their possible consequences for public libraries.

Abstract [en]

Introduction. A new theoretical model, relevant to library and information science, is implemented in this paper. The aim of this study is to contribute to the theoretical concepts of library and information science by introducing an ethnological model developed for investigating charter tourist styles thereby increasing our knowledge of users' approaches to public libraries. Method. This is an empirically grounded study. One hundred and eighty-two library visitors were interviewed at Swedish public libraries during 2011. Analysis. Both quantitative and qualitative content analysis were used in the treatment of the empirical data. Results. The paper is divided into three parts. The first part introduces the ethnological model. The second part presents the application of the model on the empirical data. The third part identifies possible research questions concerning public library user approaches. Conclusions. This study shows that it is fruitful to apply a travel analogy for mapping user approaches to public libraries. Five public library user approaches are identified. The application can be used as a tool in order to discuss priorities in public library activities.

Abstract [en]

This article is a reflection on the Swedish library system, taking its departure point in the concept of “library geography”. The aim is to construct an updated and realistic description of the sector as a whole, including basic institutions, organisational elements, main actors and basic relations. The study uses a pragmatic and interpretative approach, based on a small sample of empirical evidence. The sources are varied and consist of web sites, library calendars, encyclopaedias, academic literature and reports from public agencies at different levels. The article presents a figure identifying different founding categories of how libraries are conceptualised in practice. It also introduces a new construction for mapping different institutions, organisational elements etc. in relation to their position in social areas or societal dimensions. The authors reflect on the incongruent structure of the field and confirm thereby the conclusions of other researchers. They also add new aspects to the picture such as digital initiatives and organisational life in the private sector of the Swedish library system. Some suggestions are given on how to map the library field in the future, based on categories such as user, documentary practices and roles and functions.
