How did 14 Swedish organizations view the role of the school library media centre during 1995? (English)
Abstract [en]

In the Swedish school library discussion, the most prominent role of the school library has long been that of cultural centre in the school, with the main goal being to encourage children's reading. During the 90ies there were signs of a shift in focus to the role of information centre, giving active support across the whole range of the curriculum, in the independent researching work of the students. At the same time severe budget cuts caused great worries for the future. The interest for the school library media centres increased during this time, many different organizations said they wanted to fight for better school libraries. The purpose of the present work was to find out who they are, what they want and what their ideal school library looks like. Fourteen organizations were studied, focus was on activities during 1995. The methods used were; analysis of curriculum text linked to a model for describing library activities; interviews with representatives of the different organizations; text analysis of the journals of the organizations and a search in a reference data base. The main results were the following: The new national curriculum does not mention schoool libraries. Despite this, an interpretation, made by a librarian, shows many passages in the text pointing to a great need of a strong library function in the schools as they tum to the more resource based, problem solving learning emphasized by the curriculum. The results also show that, despite joint efforts to strengthen the school library media centres, a general agreement on the role of the library in the school has still not been reached. A comparision between the result of the interviews and the analysis of the official journals of the organizations showed a discrepancy in the view of the importance of the school library in implementing the new cumculum. The search in a reference data base showed that during 1995 school library issues were of real interest in the library press only, with very few articles in educational press or daily papers.
