Book Fortress, Department Store or Theatre of Knowledge? : Study of Public- and University Library Buildings, from Carolina Rediviva to Malmö University Library. (English)
Abstract [en]

This is a two years master’s thesis that studies five libraries. The purpose with the paper was to look at a specific material and study how it expresses itself around the architecture of the buildings, an if the descriptions were different depending on the library, public library or university library. 

The conclusion is that the ways of describing the library buildings have varied; depending on one part time and one part evolution. The way library buildings look and have been used has changed over time also, and as well how people perceive and talk, or in this case write about them.
