”Then I EXIST” : A study about the user's perception of the rainbow shelf (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to provide increased knowledge about the phenomenon of "rainbowshelf" and how the user group LGBT+ experiences it. The purpose has been answered with the help of the questions: How does the target group LGBTQ+ experience the rainbow shelf? And how can their experiences be understood from queer theory? The empirical material has been collected through a websurvey that addressed the user group LGBT+. It has spread with the help of the snowball method on social media and resulted in 124 answers that were then analysed both quantitatively and qualitatively. The theoretical framework used in this thesis is queer theory. The result shows that most respondents are positive to a rainbow shelf, although most respondents have never used a rainbow shelf themselves. Among those who have used a rainbow shelf, they find that they are made visible through it and feel more included in the library. It also appears that among those who are negative to the rainbow shelf, the main reason for this is the feeling that “we and them” is reinforced and that it feels very indicatory to go to a special shelf to find their books.
