Comics on the bookshelf : a study of handling and storing of the comic medium in Swedish public libraries. (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis investigates the situation for comics in Swedish public libraries. The main questions is separated into two groups, the first dealing with the physical situation were we investigate placement, cataloguing and shelf arrangement. The second deals with the librarians attitudes towards comics and how they may affect their work. The base for this thesis is the idea that the comic medium may sometimes be treated different than the rest of the libraries collections. Because of this, a theoretical basis is developed which focus on different views on comics. To find the answers to these questions, interviews are used. First, four libraries is chosen, all situated in the western part of southern Sweden but different in size and location. In each library, an investigation of the locale and an interview with the librarian responsible for the comics takes place. The investigation of the locale is carried out with the help of a pre-developed form based on literary sources. From these studies the following answers is deducted: the attitude of the librarian in charge does affect the work with comics in the library. Some librarians express a negative attitude, other a very positive one. The comic medium is not questioned as such. However, the growth and maintenance of the comic collection is not guaranteed. The librarians often express that they do not have knowledge of the medium and it takes the personal engagement of a librarian to keep the comic collection alive. If such a librarian exists, the collection may flourish.
