AMELib (Accessible Multi-Modal Electronic Library)

AMELib (Accessible Multimodal Electronic Library) was developed in the framework of the services offered by the Association of Greek Academic Libraries (SEAB) and aims to provide accessibility (via internet) of books to the eligible printed-disabled users of Greek academic libraries. It is also the first attempt of the online Public Access Catalog (OPAC), which documents the available accessible literature in Greece based on international standards, following international developments.

In AMELib, the taught books of the Greek HEIs and TEI that participate in the Cooperative Network are documented and posted. Documents are also provided by copyright holders for this purpose, as well as open access sources.

Formal disability refers to people who have difficulty reading printed material without assistance. This can be due to a physical disability that prevents him / her from holding a book, due to a perceptual or learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, and due to blindness or visual impairment. Beneficiary users of the services of the Cooperative Network and AMELib are the print-dsabled members of the Network libraries. For more information send e-mail: amelib.seab.gr/contact.

Greek law defines persons with disabilities as those who “suffer from defective or impaired vision which cannot be corrected by the use of corrective lenses to such an extent that it is satisfactory to read, are deaf, and generally do not have the ability to read a printed text in a conventional way or to perceive the content of a work with the use of their natural senses ”(article 3 of the relevant Ministry Decision). Beneficiary form-disabled users have access to the entire AMELib collection, regardless of their source.

Organizations – Publishers that provide Open Access to all or some of the e-books
