Libraries in Sustainable Communities: The UN Sustainable Development Goals as a Framework for Change
Libraries are key institutions for achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a framework for organizational change to create strong, resilient communities. Libraries are familiar, trusted organizations with a mission that supports economic opportunity, equality, civic engagement, education and health.  Rather than creating new, unproven infrastructure, existing library systems can align programming and services to transform lives and connect with community partners.

NOVEL: Building a Sustainable Online Publishing and Educational Platform
NOVEL is a discipline specific open repository. Eccles Library serves as publisher and provides opportunities for health professionals to publish non-traditional scholarly output which builds a neuro-ophthalmology curriculum. Needing continued support, spin off products were developed for licensing. An Illustrated Curriculum was published in Stat!Ref, a Teton Data Systems electronic platform. The revenue generated by the Stat!Ref product will help sustain the NOVEL open repository. The open NOVEL repository allows faculty around the world to share expertise and support training of neuro-ophthalmologists. The model established is transferrable and could be used by other disciplines. The Library-Society collaboration has been a rewarding way to enhance educational cooperation within the discipline of Neuro-ophthalmology. Libraries can be publishers of non-traditional content and manage peer-review. This role is a natural extension of the library profession and places the library in an essential position to further education and research in an academic discipline.

Legal Inclusion for All
Utah courts are flooded with legal filings from self-represented parties.  The Utah Committee on Legal Inclusion (UCLI) is teaming up with the Utah State Library to educate librarians and provide a statewide marketing program designed to educate librarians in the state about use of the Online Court Assistance Program (OCAP). The goal is to increase citizens’ access to justice and to help self-represented persons.  It is designed so that non-lawyers can prepare the necessary documents to file in Utah Courts.  Additionally, by advertising your library as a resource for use of the OCAP forms, you can increase the relevance of your library in your community.   UCLI’s goals of increasing access to justice and ensuring that all citizens of Utah have access to the courts is also achieved given that many marginalized populations use local libraries as their primary resource for information, internet and other valuable information.
