Popular music at public libraries a study in assortment. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master thesis is to examine different factors that may influence the librarian in the selection of popular music. The study is conducted through a qualitative method, influenced by grounded theory. The results are based on patterns drawn from both interviews with six libraries and from literature. The literature review concerns foremost cultural politics, music aesthetics, the sphere of popular music in Sweden today and the impact of commercialism. Also the purposes of popular music in a library, aspects of values of popular music and assortment policies are being discussed. The results show that there are a variety of factors that could influence the librarian when selecting popular music. These factors come from both the librarians own ideas as well as from users, cultural politics and from the music society surrounding the library. The study shows that libraries are being torn between quality standards in music and the consequences of commercialism. Therefore commercialism is the most distinct factor. The results of this study could constitute an instrument for further research in the area of popular music at public libraries. Nr 95 Fredrike Holzhausen Henriksson, Annica Klahr: Föräldrar i fokus! En studie av småbarnsföräldrars informationsbehov och barnbibliotekariers intentioner med föräldraträffar Parents in focus! A study of parents need of information and child librarians intentions concerning information meetings for parents [101][pdf.gif] The aim of this study is to examine present forms of interaction between Child Welfare Clinics Barnavårdscentraler, BVC, and libraries. The study departs from the users perspective, i.e. how the parents evaluate the information they are given about the library and its resources to provide information they want in their present and new situation. In two local communities the survey looks into how parents of babies are informed about the library in meetings arranged as part of the information and support program provided by BVC. Methods used in the survey are interviews with librarians participating in information activities, and focus-group interviews with parents participating in BVC-groups meetings. The findings are related to other user studies connected to the ELlS-theory Everyday Life Information Seeking. Results from the survey indicate that mothers do appreciate the information activities, and that the form of information group meetings often works well, in that more informed and regular library users give hints and advice to those not normally using the library. If information about the library and its information capability could be provided earlier during the pregnancy many mothers-in-waiting would use it to find information on the entirely new situation in life they find themselves in.
