Abstract [en]

Integration projects at two libraries: multiculture, meetings and possibilities takes its start in the fact that Sweden is populated with people from many different nations. The libraries have a unique possibility to arrange integration projects as a supplier of culture and information. This case study focuses on two integration projects arranged by two libraries; the library of Jönköping with the project Brobyggarbiblioteken, and the library of Kortedala which was involved in the project Ordbron. My purpose is to find out how these two libraries chose to work with integration, migrants and multiculture. The aim is to examine if the library could function as a passway to the Swedish society, and to find out if the library can facilitate for migrants to maintain contact with their native country. I have interviewed representatives for the libraries as well as a few of the persons who took part in Ordbron and Brobyggarbiblioteken. Andersson and Skot-Hansens Model over det lokale bibliototekets profil and results from the study Gør biblioteket en forskel by Jochumsen and Hvenegaard Rasmussen function as the theoretical background to my study. The result indicates that the library can function as a passway to the Swedish society, for example by supplying books and electronic links in easy Swedish. The libraries can also facilitate for migrants to maintain contact with their native country, for example by offering books, papers and links to websites from different nations. Its important that the library co-operates with other organizations in the society to succeed with the aim of contributing to integration.
