Vašíčková, Zuzana ; Buřilová, Marcela (advisor) ; Hubrtová, Jitka (referee)
The bachelor's thesis focuses on the historical development of fiction as a literary genre, from the early modern period to the present. This trend is observed in the Czech Republic and abroad. Besides the development we can find here as well the definitions of particular genres. The thesis then examines how public libraries are facing to the current trend of popularity of the fiction. The problems associated with the description of documents, construction of the fund, and acquisition are mentioned as well as benefits from the popularity of the genre - when libraries use fiction to their promotion. The conclusion briefly surveys current state of the book market and its share which is occupied by the fiction. In the supplement a brief list of fiction subgenres can be found.
The role of annotations of fiction works (the use of annotations in public libraries)
Camfrla, Štěpán ; Buřilová, Marcela (advisor) ; Hubrtová, Jitka (referee)
This thesis concerns the role of annotations of fiction works, and it describes the significance of annotation, its functions, as well as its actual use in public libraries. The thesis shows the clash between theoretical expectations and practical results. In theory, annotation is presented as an autonomous literary text the purpose of which is to present the reader with accurate and appropriate information about the books available in a library's Online Public Access Catalog. In practise, however, libraries have been trying to provide information at all costs, shifting away from creative methods of annotating. The closing chapter gives a glimpse of possible future development of the issue.
