Operating since 1999, the AUA Armenian Digital Library was established as a platform for the collection, digitization, preservation and presentation to worldwide audiences of some of the enormous cultural wealth contained in the rich holdings of Armenian national repositories all over the world. The significance of the digital library goes beyond merely digitizing 3,000 works by 700 authors. The main strength of the Armenian Digital Library is that it is a dramatically advanced method of collecting, storing and organizing information in a digital format. The works included in Digital Library are chosen in compliance with the current academic standards of modern Armenian Studies. Bibliographical materials about the original documents, as well as later date editions are attached to each article inside. The Digital Library contains the best translations into modern Armenian, Russian, English, German, French, Italian, and other languages. The library consists of four major sections: 1. 5th to 18th Centuries Classical Armenian Literature, 2. 1850-2000 Western and Diaspora Literature, 3. Armenian Martyr Authors of Genocide period, 4. Armenian Studies.
