Does school need School Libraries? The School Library’s role in school’s democratic assignment. A Critical Ideology analysis. (English)
Abstract [en]

The subject of this master thesis is the school library and how we find its potential unutilized. We look at this problem in connection to the democratic assignment that the Swedish school has. The purpose is to elucidate what the democratic assignment consists of and to establish the role that the school library ought to have in this assignment. To describe the democratic assignment we examine and interpret the documents that regulate school and library activities today, including UNESCO/IFLA School Library Manifesto and United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. We use critical ideology analysis because we consider democracy to be a sort of ideology and have a critical view of how the school library is used or rather not used in school. To help us fulfil the purpose we have three questions: What role should the School Library have in school’s democratic assignment? a) What does the democratic assignment consist of? b) How is the School Library’s role described in the regulative documents of school and library activities and in IFLA/Unesco’s School Library Manifesto? The analysis is done by trying to interpret what’s said and what’s implicit. According to this master thesis the school library is not a natural part of school society and the existence of a school library is very much dependent on the headmasters view on school libraries. It’s quite clear that the school library can be a tool and a pedagogic resource in helping school to achieve the aims of the democratic assignment.
