AMELib: Accessible Multi-modal Electronic Library

Disability is not just a congenital or acquired physical limitation. It is, according to the United Nations, primarily a social condition between the individual and his environment. To put an end to the discrimination of disability in practice, an environment capable of overcoming any obstacles is required. In this regard, the development of new technological applications can enhance the required support services..

The development of AMELib (Accessible Multi-modal Electronic Library) in the framework of HEAL-link, aims to strengthen the effort to remove barriers for print-disabled users of Greek academic libraries. The goal is to offer accessible content through an equally accessible web application, which is based on the application of copyright exemption provisions for print-disabled people, as provided for in copyright law.
