Public library and allocation of funds. A comparative study of seven public libraries in the community of Uppsala. (English)
Abstract [en]

Allocation of funds to public libraries is uneven and this study will try to explain the reasons and clarify why the allocations of funds are distributed like they are and what calculations influenced the financial apportionment. This master thesis accounts for allocation in seven public libraries in Uppsala. The study shows that one reason for uneven allocations is demographic. Another reason is that the library has come into a good or bad circle. There are no models for allocation of funds to public libraries in Uppsala, thats why their allocations are given after a percentage increase of earlier years allocations, and that leads to a good or bad circle. If the bad circle trend is to be broken the Library managers have to observe the factors that influence their allocation. The conclusions in this study are that these factors are, first of all, how adapted the public library is to its local environment and its political society. Other factors are how co-ordinated different individuals in public organizations are and how these individuals act together with the inhabitants in its local environment and also how prepared the Library manager is in the meeting of politicians and in the budget process. To break the bad circle the Library managers have to adjust the goal of the library regularly and also become responsive to the community and adjust the goal according to the political environment. It is also important to influence the cooperation between different individuals in society, like politicians, inhabitants and other individuals in the public organizations in the local environment of the library.
