To have and have not : A study of librarians values and criteria for selection of feature films at libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

This Masters thesis concerns feature film services in Swedish public libraries. We have investigated the opinion of eight librarians concerning values and criteria for selection as regards film. The theory chosen comes from varied disciplines, for example sociology, adapted to our subject. The most important theories are Antonio Gramscis idea of hegemony, Herbert J. Gans concept of taste cultures and Carl Gustav Johannsens discussion about quality. The method used is qualitative interviews and the answers from those have been analysed according to different categories. The results show that the librarians rather give priority to literature than to film, even when they value feature film highly. In their work the librarians willingly support culture and democracy and another important factor that influences film purchase is that they want the library to function as an alternative to local video stores. The librarians are also influenced by the community, by debates in society and film festivals. When selecting film, the librarians work according to two different aspects of quality; transcendent and user-based. The study has also shown that the librarian s influence on the users can be seen as an expression of a cultural hegemony, both when it comes to the access of feature film and the effect on their requests and taste in film. It seems like the users have adapted their taste according to the demands of quality at the libraries.
