Abstract: The goal of this paper will be to inspire and engage libraries to work on sustainability as according to the UN Agenda 2030, and especially Paragraph 4 which relates to inclusive and equitable quality education for all. In particular, we will address the issue of digital accessibility and inclusivity for the virtually impaired and present innovative technologies for those with special needs. The paper will also show what some libraries are doing in the context of open science and open access publishing, including publishing and providing eBooks and eContent, so as to ensure high levels of user accessibility. Finally, we will make recommendations for library-based publishers and others as a call to action.
