The aim was also to examine how the public libraries have responded to this reform. To answer these questions a literature study was conducted as well as interviews. The results of the literature study indicated that the main reason for making music materials compulsory is to increase the influence of the library users. The study of the debate concerning the new library act showed that a majority of the Danish political parties as well as the Danish library organizations had a positive attitude towards the new obligation. The results of the interviews indicated that the attitude of the librarians concerning the new act is very positive.

The main conclusions were:

" The strong Danish political support for the libraries as well as strong organizations like The Danish Library Board and the library organizations along with the strong position in the society held by Danish public libraries made it possible to carry through the new library act.

" The reform can be seen as part of the development towards a new approach of the public library as a service organization that should provide visitors with the materials that they want and need. (Less)
