Sažetak
IFLA Public Library Service Guidelines confirm that “providing access to major collections of the world’s literature and knowledge including the community’s own literature, is a unique contribution of the public library and still a vitally important function.” (IFLA, 2011, p. 6). According to the same document, important mission of the public library is fostering intercultural dialogue and favoring cultural diversity (IFLA, 2011, p. 120). These goals are accepted by many libraries. For example, in guidelines for library reform of Norwegian libraries it is said that libraries “have a particular cultural-political responsibility to promote the reading and knowledge of Norwegian literature and translated works and they can make their public more aware of the huge variety of literature available.” (Norwegian Archive, Library and Museum Authority, 2014, p. 19) However, there are some barriers that prevent the development of diverse collections in which you can find valuable works from entire world. One of the major challenges is a global enlargement of the publishers which have as a consequence decreasing of the diversity of the published works. Profit-oriented publishers prefer to publish works which are interesting to the largest number of people. Therefore, libraries have difficulties to find and buy valuable, less known works from the various parts of the world. Consequently, they can’t develop diverse collections of world literature (ALA, 2010, p. 9). Also, library users and librarians don’t have an opportunity to develop a diverse book, film or music preferences if they don’t have a chance to encounter valuable, less popular works. Therefore, their preferences can also present a barrier that is preventing the development of diverse library collections. Another important barrier could be deficiencies in librarian’s education. E. G. Evans and M. Z. Saponaro (2005, p. 76) confirm that film education and film preferences have an important influence on the possibility of the development of diverse film collections, when they say that the most helpful tools for the selection of works for the collection are curious and active mind of the selector and dedication of the librarian to “read, read, read”. Surely, the same recommendations apply equally to the development of film collections: Librarians that have a curious and active mind and which are dedicated to watch diverse films and to learn about them, most certainly will be more motivated and competent in the development of diverse film collections. Focus of this paper will be the film education and film preferences of students of library and information science. We will use a survey instrument to explore Croatian LIS students’ preferences for animation, feature and documentary films, their preferences for films from various countries and world regions and their preferences for old movies. We will also explore their formal and informal film education.
