AUA Armenian Digital Library launches its new website with updated content and modern tools. The library added a new section of Martyred Authors to its previous but enriched ones – Armenian Classical Literature and Western and Diaspora Writers.

It consists of about 60 volumes of 40 authors (writers, poets, publicists, historians, linguists, ethnographs and other) that were martyred during the Armenian Genocide. Some of them being published in Western Armenian press had never been printed before in individual volumes. The works are endowed with brief and extensive biobibliologies.

The library website is mobile friendly but in short time the mobile application of the library will be available in the stores for iOS and Android systems.
