Set the Record Straight: Ask the Library of Congress to Correct its "Armenian Massacres" Subject Heading to "Armenian Genocide"

ANCA Renews Call on U.S. State Department to Reprogram $25 Million in Armenia Aid to Fight COVID-19

The Library of CONGRESS - an agency of the U.S. Legislative Branch - should reflect the will of CONGRESS - as overwhelmingly established last year through two landmark resolutions recognizing the Armenian Genocide.

More than six months after the historic Congressional votes establishing ongoing Congressional recognition of the Armenian Genocide, the ANCA is encouraging the public to take advantage of the Library's online platform to suggest that it correct its "Armenian Massacres" subject heading to "Armenian Genocide."

H.Res.296 and S.Res.150 also reject any U.S. association with denial of the Armenian Genocide denial, and encourage education and public understanding of this crime. The ANCA went on record last year in a letter to the Librarian of Congress requesting this change.

To ask the Library of Congress to correct the "Armenian Massacres" subject heading, follow these 3 simple steps:

1) Visit the Library of Congress Armenian Massacres, 1915-1923  reference page

2) Click on "Suggest Alternative Terminology"
(It's a small link with an email icon next to it under the "Subject of Works" section.)

3) Type in your name, email and, in the "suggested terminology" section, please encourage them to change the terminology to "Armenian Genocide, 1915-1923."

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the ANCA at
