The ARIT Istanbul Library Annex has relocated to Karakoy and access is limited for the time being. ARIT lectures and book talks continue online, however, and the growing resources of the American Board Library and Archives are always accessible through the ARIT Istanbul Digital Library.
ARIT Ankara and Friends have offered a strong series of online lectures on the Art, Archaeology, and Architecture of Turkey over the past year. Most ARIT events are accessible on ARIT’s new YouTube channel. The staff at both centers are waiting for students, researchers, and friends to return in person.
In addition to their focused research collections, ARIT libraries offer digital research resources through SALT Research and the Digital Library for International Research. Affiliated institutions provide diverse K-14 curriculum materials.
