Music on the Internet the future for the libraries music departments? (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to discuss the possibilities of, and interest in, a digital download service at the music departments of the libraries. I chose to conduct my study at the city library of Gothenburg. I studied the legal download services that exist today and I did a statistical survey among the users of the music department, followed up by interviews to see how they took to the idea. From the inquiry I learned that a majority of the users was negative to having a digital service replacing the physical department, although a majority was positive to try a digital service. I also used the inquiry to compare the reasons for downloading music to the reasons for borrowing records from the library, but there was no significant difference. Through the interviews I identified the two different ways to search for music that the services represented. This difference, along with the fact that many citizens dont have the proper access to an Internet service of this kind suggests that a transition at the moment to a digital service would be too soon. Until people have proper access and the search issues can be resolved, smaller services can be a good place to start for both the libraries and the users. When these problems are resolved, the libraries have the chance to give their users a considerably larger music library to choose from through cooperation with the large legal downloading services run by the record companies.
