Some books find their readers anyway: about GLBT literature for young people at Swedish public libraries. (English)
This two years master's thesis investigates how GLBT fiction for young people is treated and looked upon at Swedish public libraries. Three librarians have been interviewed. The theory and method is based on Norman Fairclough's critical discourse analysis. Three discourses in the Swedish public library field are revealed, of which one is the democratic discours. GLBT is not necessarily included in the democratic discourse by the interviewed librarians. This thesis declares that since there is no consensus about GLBT in the Swedish public library field. The discourses used by the individual librarians about GLBT, becomes deciding for how they apporach GLBT literature in their profession.
