Abstract: The aim of this bachelor thesis is to investigate the lending of video games at the public libraries in Sweden. The thesis focused around a web survey, which was sent out to all public library directors, as its research material. The results were compared with those found in a master thesis by Olle Berg and Thomas Nyström from 2008. This was done to gain a better understanding of why the libraries provided video games. The other results of the survey were analyzed with a quantitative method.The results indicate that half of the responding libraries provide video games for borrowing. Larger libraries seemed to more often provide the service. When it came to problems; most respondents did experience problems related to the cost of the medium. The other problem that stood out was the frustration around the unstandardised formats that video games have. Both respondents who lent video games and those who did not had a similar view of the problems related to the medium. The reasons for lending video games seemed to be a combination of several reasons with an emphasis on the topics culture, democracy/equality, advertising and social aspects. This thesis did overall confirm the results found in previous studies.
