The librarys periodicals and department of periodicals : a survey of 13-16 year old childrens reading in relation to the selection. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this masters thesis is to examine the supply of magazines and periodicals for young people at the library. We also examine young peoples reading of magazines and periodicals and compare the librarys selection with what young people read. The main questions of this thesis are: What do young people do at the library on their spare time? What weekly magazines and periodicals do young people read? What range of magazines and periodicals do the city- and the school library have? Where is the department located and how is it designed? What kind of relationship is there between young peoples reading and the selection? To answer these questions we have done an interview with a librarian and a questionnaire among 13-16 year old children. We found that it is not often that young people read their magazines and periodicals at the library. It is more frequent that the boys find magazines to read at the library compared with the girls. The librarian thinks that the librarys main task is to provide magazines and periodicals that dont exist at the open market, and therefore they do a quality selection. We have also found that it is hard for the librarian to handle magazines and periodicals for 13-16 year old children, because they are caught between the childrens department and the adult department.
