Making women visible : A study  of the library KvinnSam's contribution for further gender studies (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aims to examine in which ways the library of KvinnSam in Gothenburg contributes to gender studies. I examined how the work of KvinnSam can be viewed as a feminist project, what the work understands to be about and challenges that the library meets. Qualitative interviews with two librarians working at KvinnSam were performed, along with a one day visit. As a theoretical framework I used feminist theory, which is used in the analysis. A summary of earlier research and their methods is presented. The research of this study exhibited that the library may have an important role to play for further gender studies, and also in documenting records of women´s history. It was also discovered that the library experiences challenges in regards to legitimacy, often having to defend its existence. I have come to the conclusion that KvinnSam makes women more visible, and can therefore be seen as a feminist project, which seems to be the main focus within the work of KvinnSam.
