The public library and the information task : Four library organisations view of the public library. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine different attitudes regarding freedom of information and how libraries should fulfil their information-task represented by four organisations. The organisations are important in shaping the Swedish public libraries in different ways. The purpose is to examine in what ways their definition of information freedom may differ from one another and what that means in defining the public library. For the survey the qualitative textual analysis has been used for examining the documents and websites that are part of the debate about the public library and information freedom. We chose to interview representatives of four organisations that in different ways influence the shaping of the public library. The four libraryorganisations are Bibliotek i Samhälle BiS, IFLA/FAIFE , Svensk Biblioteksförening and Bibliotekarieförbundet BF. The thesis shows that the attitudes regarding information freedom relates to the attitudes towards what role the public library should play in the Swedish society. Several different elements effect the different organisations definition of freedom of information. Elements such as tradition, professionalism, legitimacy and its context.
