“It would be a dream” : Primary Headmasters' interpretations and practices regarding access to school libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

In July 2011, new regulations regarding school libraries came into effect through a new education act for Swedish schools. The wording of the Act has been the basis of much discussion in which the concepts of "school library" and "access" makes it difficult to build consensus among different parties, why this can cause difficulties in ultimately construct equal access to school library. The purpose of this survey is to examine the interpretations and practices that exist around the school library and its functions among primary school principals. The principals have been selected on the basis that they themselves (the schools) already indicated that they do not have access to their own school library within the school premises. As a theoretical starting point, I used the school library researcher David Loertscher’s taxonomy for school leaders. In order to collect the empirical material for the study I conducted qualitative, semi-structured interviews with four principals from both municipal and independent schools at primary level in Gothenburg. Among other things, I was able to see how the principals are choosing to interpret the school law in the only way they can be said to reach up to the requirements today. That is, by providing access to school libraries through visits to nearby municipal libraries and by borrowing books from different library-centers etc. This was done while the principals at the same time revealed how they also assumes that the Education Act is likely referring to an access to a physical library within the school's premises.
