Abstract

Sustainable development implies the harmonization of economic and social development with the preservation of natural resources for future growth. Libraries, as centers of education and open access to information, play an important role in green literacy and the promotion of knowledge about a sustainable environment. Libraries are also drivers of change that can make a significant contribution to addressing sustainability issues and achieving the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through new services and activities. The Library at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture Osijek seeks to contribute to the achievement of planned goals for sustainable development related to education and availability of information, environmental protection and sustainable construction. The paper describes the educational and information resources that the library provides in material form and on online platforms, as well as activities that promote environmental awareness and user participation in green activities.
