The value(s) of the ebook : A comparative study of the book industries and the public libraries statements about the electronic book in Svensk Bokhandel and Biblioteksbladet during the years 2000-2014 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis in Library and Information Science (LIS) is to examine how the book industry and the public libraries discuss the electronic books values in the Swedish journals Svensk Bokhandel and Biblioteksbladet. The method has been to compare statements from the book industries and the public libraries in articles during the period 2000-2014. Paula Schultz Nybackas thesis Bookonomy - the consumption practice and value of book reading provides the theory of the thesis. The material consists of selected articles in Svensk Bokhandel och Biblioteksbladet.  

The results of the analysis show that the book industry and the public library think and treat the ebook differently. The book industry perceive the economic value of the ebook, and the public libraries are focused on the literary value of the ebook. That can explain why the public libraries and the book industry can’t seem to find a solution about ebook lending at the public libraries in Sweden.This is a two-year master’s thesis in Archive, Library and Museum studies.
