Abstract [en]

This Master thesis is about elderly visually impaired and their use of libraries. It poses the question how visually impaired elderly looks upon their local library. Their thoughts and opinions are mainly from two sides. One is what they think about the service that they get. The other is what they think about the information concerning this service. The thesis consists of six interviews with respondents and one interview with a librarian. The librarian has also been asked about the service and information to the visually impaired. The analysis is made with narrative analysis and theories from Professor Tom Wilson, Lars Höglund and Olle Person. Professor Tom Wilson’s theories are about the questions of the context of information you might have when you search for information. Höglund and Person deal with the information needs and the sources that might be available. The result of the interviews is that the information about the library’s service to the visually impaired could be better. A better communication between the visually impaireds’ main organization and the library could solve this problem. It is also a clear tendency from the elderly visually impaired to be content with what they receive and not making any further demands.
