Abstract [en]

This thesis studies if public libraries in Sweden have taken part of information regarding the Swedish government policy that public areas are to be made accessible by 2010. Also studied is the significance of information and resources on the execution of accessibility adaptations at public libraries. The analysis uses Lennart Lundquist’s theory of implementation of public policies, that the person executing the policy needs to understand, be able to and want to in order for the policy to be successfully executed. The study was carried out through a survey and the thesis focuses on the factors of understanding and being able to. The survey was sent by email to all 290 municipal libraries in Sweden with an answering frequency of 65%. The results are presented in table format with explanations. The thesis finds that a clear majority of respondents have had access to information about accessibility adaptations, but that much fewer consider the information clear enough. Fewer than half believe that they will be able make the library fully accessible. Lack of resources is the most common reason cited. Most respondents have been able to make the main entrance, toilet, passage ways and at least one computer accessible. The conclusion is that much work has been done at the libraries and that there is an awareness of the accessibility issue. However there seems to be a lack of knowledge of “invisible” disabilities and resources are needed to make the libraries fully accessible.
