When do you read all the books? An interview study regarding librarians attitudes towards knowledge in fiction literature (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to study librarians attitudes towards fiction and reading. I have examined librarians fiction reading habits and how they handle the expectations that users may have regarding their knowledge in fiction literature. There have been many studies concerning the librarians information literacy. This work explores librarians competence in fiction literature. The primary question posted in this thesis is: What kind of fiction are librarians reading and how do they feel that they can correspond to the users expectations? The data collection is based on literature on the subject and qualitative interviews with eight librarians from different kinds of libraries. The theoretical framework builds on Pierre Bourdieus theories. The conclusion is that librarians read a lot. They read different kinds of fiction literature but more high literature. They want to have some kind of quality in their literature. This corresponds well to Bourdieus theories about the middeltaste. The librarians are aware of the users high expectations but most of them still dont consider this as a big problem. They anyway give several suggestions that would give fiction literature a more important place in the education for future librarians. Four of the librarians in this study would like to have compulsory courses in fiction literature within Library and information science.
