Managing languages at a smaller library : a qualitative study about how a smaller library works with minority languages (English)
Abstract [en]

The following thesis will examine how a smaller library manages the prioritization of media between Swedish and 'minority language'. We are also interested in the challenges and problems that can occur in such work, as well as how the librarians think about their role in the integration process. We have studied this through several qualitative interviews with librarians as well as earlier related research. The results show that librarians display a high propensity of appreciation related to working with minority languages and consider this an important aspect of their profession – they fully ingratiate and accept the importance of helping the immigrant population in learning Swedish. However, our study also discovers several organizational problems that hinder this work, which mainly relate to a lack of funds and other issues related to resource inefficiency. The conclusion states the awareness and importance of providing media in minority languages, but is hindered by flaws in the systems surrounding the organization of public libraries.
