Pornography and racist propaganda at Swedish public libraries : should public libraries allow free usage of the Internet or should they control their Internet computers? (English)
Abstract [en]

This paper deals with the use of Internet at Swedish public libraries. The author asks whether public libraries should or should not limit access to information available on the Internet. Starting from the American discussion, concerning Internet at public libraries, the author shows the Swedish attitudes. The paper demonstrates that many Swedish public libraries have adopted rules forbidding retrieval of certain kinds of information, such as hard-core pornography and racist propaganda. The persons in charge of such actions claim that public libraries should provide high-quality educational literature and should not spread mass-produced, provocative information. The author asserts that public libraries, which have chosen to limit access to the Internet, should avoid doing so, since they are on a collision course with Swedish legislation on freedom of speech.
