During May-June 2021, the library of the "Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute" Foundation has grown by 500 books, thanks to individual donors, cooperation with the Institute of History of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia and by purchases. Pedagogue and public figure Gevorg Mesrop’s (Gevorg Ter-Mesropyan) personal library stands out in terms of quantity and antiquity and is registered in the AGMI library as a separate collection. It consists of four hundred and thirty books in Armenian and French.
Thanks to cooperation with the Institute of History of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia, the library has also been enriched with about seventy specialized titles published by the Institute of History over the past ten years. In its turn, the AGMI has, under the terms of a reciprocal agreement, given copies its publications to the Institute of History in the last few years.
There are similar cooperation agreements with the Institute of Oriental Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia and the “Vache and Tamar Manukyan” Matenadaran of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin.
The AGMI Library has also acquired eight volumes of republished memoirs dedicated to the cities, villages and regions of Western Armenia, published in Antilias on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. These are of great specialist value for those who conduct studies on the theme of the Armenian Genocide.
All these books have found their rightful place in the foundation’s library, serving both the staff of the institute and reading room visitors.
