Politicians view of the public library : a study in the interior of Västerbotten. (English)
Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this Master thesis is to illuminate the understanding of local politicians regarding the public libraries and the librarians. We argue that the local politicians´ opinions regarding public libraries and librarians influence the way they act and react in their roles as politicians. In order to achieve the aim of this thesis we focused on following questions: What are the opinions of the politicians: - regarding themselves in relation to the public library? - concerning public libraries in general and its functions especially in the municipalities of their own? - concerning the librarians and their work in a public function? What are the conclusions to be drawn regarding the politicians´ interest and commitment to public libraries in the politic daily-life of the municipalities? Our empiric material consists of qualitative interviews with six politicians elected in two municipalities in the interior of Västerbotten, a northern sparsely populated district. In order to distinguish the various opinions that emerge from the material, we apply a phenomenographic approach. The analysis result we present in three conceivable categories in order to express the different opinions. In general our study points at a positive and favourable attitude to the public library, and all the respondents assume that the municipality ought to offer this service. In spite of these facts the local politicians show a low commitment to the library service they have the responsibility to decide on.
