Lebensstil und Bibliotheksnutzung: Eine vergleichende by Henrik Amme

By Henrik Amme

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Bibliothekswissenschaften, details technological know-how, be aware: 1,7, Hochschule für Technik, Wirtschaft und Kultur Leipzig (Medien), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die soziologische Lebensstilforschung liefert durch Sozialstrukturanalysen gesellschaftlicher Gruppen vielfältige und weitreichende Erkenntnisse über heutige Erwartungen und Verhaltensweisen bestimmter Zielgruppen und Milieus. In Deutschland nutzen laut einer infas-Studie aus dem Jahre 2004 gegenwärtig knapp 30 % der Bürgerinnen und Bürger Öffentliche Bibliotheken. Trotz oder gerade wegen der immensen Größe und Heterogenität dieser gesellschaftlichen Gruppe ist wenig über ihre Beschaffenheit bekannt.
Martin Szlatki eröffnet mit seiner Forschungsarbeit “Lebensstilanalyse und Nutzungsverhalten in der Bibliothek” (2008) über den Einfluss des Lebensstils auf die Nutzung der Stadtbücherei Stuttgart differenziertere Einsichten zum Lebensstil von Bibliotheksnutzerinnen und -nutzern als herkömmliche Bibliotheksstatistiken und verkleinert dadurch die Forschungslücke in diesem Bereich. Zur examine der Lebensstile der Nutzerinnen und Nutzer bediente er sich eines von Gunnar Otte entwickelten quantitativen Lebensstilanalysemodells auf foundation eines standardisierten Fragebogens. Eben jenes Analyseinstrument kam auch bei der repräsentativen Befragung von knapp über one thousand Nutzerinnen und Nutzern der Stadtbibliothek Leipzig zum Einsatz, die dieser Arbeit zugrunde liegt. Wodurch und inwieweit sich die Lebensstile von Bibliotheksnutzern aus Ost- und Westdeutschland voneinander unterscheiden, steht als Frage im Zentrum dieser Arbeit. Ausgehend von Ottes Hypothese nach wie vor bestehender regionaler Disparitäten, ist in Leipzig von einer schwächeren Besetzung gehobener bzw. ressourcenstarker Lebensstiltypen auszugehen. Durch systembedingte Sozialisationsunterschiede ist in Leipzig zudem eine geringere Verbreitung des (an postmateriellen Werten orientierten) reflexiven Lebensstils und gleichzeitig eine höhere des (an materiellen Werten orientierten) Lebensstils der Unterhaltungssuchenden zu erwarten. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist die empirische Überprüfung dieser Hypothesen. Zugleich dient die vergleichende examine auch dazu, mehr über die Nutzerinnen und Nutzern deutscher Öffentlicher Bibliotheken zu erfahren und damit ein klareres Bild von ihnen zu bekommen. Ferner wird auch versucht, den bislang wenig ausgeschöpften Diskurs der bibliothekarischen Lebensstilforschung anzuregen und zu bereichern.
