Fantasy, Science Fiction & Skräck : Tre populärlitterära genrers ställning på två svenska folkbibliotek (Engelska)
Abstract [en]

Popular fiction have met with an abundance of criticism troughout history. Then around the twentieth century events had the libraries forced to reevaluate their identities. Fantasy, science fiction and horror are all examples of popular fiction. There-fore this thesis aims to show what position the genres holds at two swedish public libraries – library A and B. For this pupose the paper will focus on the genres availability towards the users. Availability has been reduced into four functions – acqusition, placement, display and exhibition. Furthermore the pa-per uses modifications of Elzingas traditionalistic, pragmatic and emancipa-torial strategies. This as a way to try to explain the reasons behind the current availability of the genres. The research questions are: How has library A and library B choosen to make fantasy, science fiction and horrorlitterature avai-lable in the library? What are the reasons behind the choosen form of availa-bility? Observations and qualitative interviews has been performed at respective lib-rary. The result concludes that horror was not broken out as its own genre. Ho-wever fantasy and science fiction was and where placed together. A lot of the librarians work seemded to stem from a desire to simplify for the user. In con-clusion the pragmatic strategy comes out as the dominent one. However all three strategies can be distinguished. The conclusion made is that the horrorgenre did not have a very good position in the libraries. Science fiction had a somewhat good position but much in adherence to fantasy which had a very good position.
