Rival or complement? : Librarians’ attitude towards services for digital books in public libraries and the commercial market (engelsk)
Abstract [en]

The Swedish digital book market has not seen the same success rate as English speaking countries have. Instead, the digital book has grown slowly, with libraries being the front runners. But in the past few years, new players have entered the commercial market and subscription services have gained many new users. Research on these subscription services has been scarce. This thesis aims to explore librarians’ experiences, viewpoints and attitudes towards their digital book services, subscription services and what effect they might have on the public library. The goal with this thesis are to generate new knowledge and contribute to a deeper understanding in regard to the current situation. Qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with four participating librarians. The result was analysed through a thematic analysis based on the theoretical framework. The study found that the librarians consider digital books to have great potential, but at the same time there are a lot of restrictions concerning their current situation. A majority of the interviewees felt they did not have enough time, money, resources or staff in order to manage their digital books. They did not however feel threatened by subscription services on the market. They did report to have noticed an increase of subscription services, but they also experienced that a lot of users of subscription services were also users of the library, which led them to believe that the library so far has not been majorly affected but might be in the future, depending on the subscription growth and quality.
