The multilingual library : a survey of the libraries provision of literature in other languages than Swedish (English)
Abstract [en]

The underlying purpose of this study is to investigate how the libraries in Sweden organize and administrate the service of providing literature in other languages than Swedish. The study focuses on the central guiding principles that regulate the provision of multilingual literature and how these guidelines are implemented in to practice at the libraries. As the guidelines are closely connected to the official discourse in Sweden concerning policies targeted towards immigrants, the guidelines will be examined from a perspective of integration politics. To assemble data a survey has been conducted looking into factors such as how the libraries perceive the guidelines, how the libraries do business intelligence and user inquires to reach out to the users of the multilingual media, forms for statistics and method of working. The results points out that the libraries in their work with multilingual media are confronted with three tensions; the first tension is that between the libraries aim to promote equality and freedom for the individual and at the same time to fulfil certain collective interests and goals. The second tension emanates from the fact that the libraries intend both to promote integration within the community of the users of the library, demos, and to promote the fact that the users also enjoy membership in different ethnic communities, ethnos. Thirdly there is an underlying tension between a policy strategy that is general in the sense that all users in principle are involved as recipients and a policy strategy that is targeted as it identifies only members of a certain category of the population as its recipients.
