Bibliotek i tunnelbanan: en ideologisk analys

Subway libraries : an ideological study (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to investigate the reason behind the decision to open libraries at subway stations in Stockholm. The theoretical framework for the study is Douglas Raber´s three ideologies, social activism, conservative response and populist initiative. The study includes interviews with librarians and a politician responsible for the service and documents with plans for the Public Libraries development during the period. The empirical material was examined with an idea- and ideological analysis. The conclusion is that the concept of the subway libraries consists of a combination of the three ideologies but the most evident are those of populist initiative and social activism. The reason for opening libraries at subway stations is to make the libraries more easily accessible, to attract new visitors and to make the Public Libraries service more visible. These small libraries have a function as a market place for the Public Libraries and as a meeting place in the city.
