Zohrab Center Catalog Is Now Live!

March 10, 2011

Scholars, researchers, students and the general public can now access the contents of the Zohrab Center’s collection, thanks to the center’s new online catalog:www.zohrabcentercatalog.com.

The catalog is a register of some 15,000 books found in the library’s rich collection. The Zohrab Center contains volumes of books covering a range of topics including Armenian literature, history, and culture.

While the center’s holdings are not in circulation, users are welcome to browse the online catalog to familiarize themselves with the center’s holdings prior to visiting the facility in Manhattan. Alternatively, users are encouraged to contact Taleen Babayan, Zohrab Center Coordinator, to request digital copies when available.

In addition, the center is home to Armenian journals, newspapers and other rare artifacts—from unique Armenian prayer scrolls to a copy of the first Armenian Bible printed in 1666—that can only be accessed by visiting the center.

The Zohrab Center is open weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located at 630 Second Avenue in New York City.

Visit the center’s website at www.zohrabcenter.com for more information. Click here to view a brief video about the Zohrab Center’s work.
