Here is yet another effort to digitize Armenian literature - it's such a treasure.
Digilib was founded in 1999 thanks to the generus support of Alice Ohanessian from Boston, who financed the digitalization of the Classical Armenian Literature for the first two years.

Since 2007 Turpanjian Family Foundation has been supporting Digilib's new and updated website and digitlaization of the Western and Diaspora Armenian Literature.
