The mobile library’s role for its users, study in a small community in Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Bachelor thesis is to investigate which roles the mobile library has to its users in a small community in Sweden. To reach this purpose I have focused on the following two research questions: • Which are the different functions, social, cultural, educational or information-based, that the mobile library offers its users and which of these are used in reality? • What purposes are there for the mobile library and how it is used by it’s visitors? To answer these questions I have interviewed four users of a mobile library and I have held e-mail interviews with librarians in charge of a mobile library as well as the head of the department of culture and peoples health in the community. As a base for my analyse I have also used a pilot study which I performed earlier in the spring of 2011. My theoretical framework is based on the model of the public library’s different roles made by Marianne Andersson and Dorte Skot-Hansen. The result of this study show’s that a mobile library isn’t very different from a permanently located public library. The four different functions all exist, wholly or partly, in the mobile library.
