The library goes to sea : The culture-, information and leisure possibilities for seamen onboard merchant shps flying the Swedish flag. (English)
Abstract [en]

This paper deals with how seamen onboard merchant ships flying the Swedish flag apprehend the culture, information and leisure possibilities that offer them by the Swedish Governrnent Seamen's Service, HKF. The objective with this work is two folded: first of all suggest some actions to be taken in order to improve the situation for seamen, based on the results from interviews with crews onboard three merchant ships. Secondly, draw the attention to HKF's activity in general and to the activity of the Swedish Seamen's Library in particular, for people working within libraries. The result of this examination shows that people onboard really regards the service carried out by HKF as very good in general, but there are some activities which hopefully can be improved. However, perhaps the most important role can be played by the shipping companies, based on the wishes that came about from the seamen. These conclusions and discussion are dealt within chapter 8.
