-Who am I to judge? : An interview study of school librarians´ choice of books for book talks (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to investigate how four educated school librarians select titels to present to their pupils during book talks, and their understanding of the concept of quality. I have used two main questions:

* What method of selection do the interviewed school librarians use when they choose books to present during book talks?

* How do the interviewed school librarians understand the concept of quality in relation to book talks?

In order to obtain answers to my questions I have used the qualitative method of semi-structured interviews. I interviewed four school librarians who work with book talks for children from ages 6-12. To analyse their answers I used three views on reading: the pragmatic, the traditionalistic and the emancipatory view.

I found that the most important factor in my informants’ book selection is that they chose books they believe the pupils would enjoy reading. They were reluctant to define the concept of quality and the common view was that the fact the pupils were reading was more important than the value of the content in the book.
