Library as an integrating resource in the society. An exemplification with the Roma people as a target group (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay is about how the library can make a difference in integrating the minority Roma people into the Swedish society. Roma people have been subjected to persecution and discrimination for a long time. In this essay, I examine the activities, functions and capabilities of libraries that can have a positive effect for the integration of the Roma people. My questions are: How can libraries reach out to the Roma people and what function do the library have for the integration of the Roma people? I have used Marianne Anderssons and Dorte Skot- Hansens theory the four functions of the library – the culutral center, the knowledge center, the information center and the social center. Based on this theory, I have interpreted and analyzed the material that I have gathered through interviews and literature studies such as thesis, dissertations, repors and parliament documents. The results of my studies show a predominance of two of the four library functions – the cultural center and the knowledge center. It was largely about literature, learning and knowledge. Some informants associated the library only with books and silence, which can be a result of how the library promote itself. As the four functions overlap, activities can often be interpreted from several angles.
