To walk a golden middle course. Nine childrens librarians discussion about Wahlströms series books at public libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this masters thesis is to examine how some childrens librarians in public libraries reason about Wahlströms series books. During the 1970s, there was a discussion about the series books, and the general meaning was, among other things, that the books should not be available at libraries. Therefore, we also want to study if the arguments for and against the series books presented today are any different than those presented in the 1970s. For this examination, two methods have been used. We have done qualitative interviews with nine childrens librarians, and in order to find the arguments presented in the 1970s, we have studied the literature regarding the mentioned discussion. The results from the study indicate that there is one big difference in the arguments presented in the 1970s and those presented today, namely that the librarians that we have interviewed names the popularity of the series books and that children often asks for them as a strong argument for that the books should be found at libraries. This argument we have not been able to find at all among the arguments presented in the 1970s. Apart from this, there is no difference to be mentioned in the arguments, but that there despite this is a more liberal view on the series books and also on the children today, and that these books are more accepted in the libraries now.
