Demand for Armenian Genocide Information Prompts ANI to Expand its Popular
Web Site

Washington, DC — The Armenian National Institute, continuing its
longstanding service for public awareness of the Armenian Genocide,
announced Thursday the launching of its expanded Web site
() incorporating new research, enhanced content and
upgraded features.

ANI Director Dr. Rouben Adalian said increased interest in issues relating
to the Armenian Genocide made the expansion and redesign inevitable.

“The mounting demands for information on the Armenian Genocide, the recent
release of numerous publications significantly expanding our knowledge of
the Armenian Genocide, and the tremendous flexibility offered through
database formats to research and explore across the entire ANI Web site
indicated that the time was right for seriously upgrading the
widely-consulted ANI Web site,” Adalian said.

A year in the making, the expanded Web site now holds a very rich assortment
of information covering the spectrum of new research and new scholarship.
Educators, researchers, students, and the general public can easily navigate
the site and search for specific references or information.

ANI Academic Council chairman Professor Christopher Simpson, who oversaw the
redesign of the ANI Web site, said:

“Since its beginning ANI took a leading role in encouraging human rights and
genocide education nationwide. Mindful of the needs of educators, the
media, and public officials, the ANI Web site rapidly emerged as the primary
electronic reference library and resource center on the Armenian Genocide.
I am delighted to see this significant expansion of the site and especially
its enhanced search capacity that addresses our growing knowledge and
understanding of the Armenian Genocide. The increasing number of visitors
to the site attests to the quality and reliability of the data provided on
the ANI Web site.”

The Armenian National Institute is dedicated to the study, research, and
affirmation of the Armenian Genocide.
