Beth Mardutho The Syriac Institute
Joins Amazon.com to Market Books on Syriac Studies
Piscataway, NJ - March 14, 2002. Today, Beth
Mardutho The Syriac Institute announced that it joined Amazon.com Associates to
help further disseminate books in the field of Syriac studies through its
web site www.bethmardutho.org.
Amazon.com is the largest book retailer on the Internet. Every time a
visitor visits www.bethmardutho.org home page, a
listing of books available from Amazon.com is dynamically generated and linked
to Amazon.com. Additionally, all other pages on the www.bethmardutho.org site give a
selection of one book on the top-right corner, and a selection of two other
books at the bottom.
For each product purchased from Amazon.com
through a link from www.bethmardutho.org, Beth
Mardutho earns between 5% and 15% of the sale price. The proceeds will
be used to help implement Beth Mardutho's eBeth Arké Project, announced last
year, as well as other projects. The eBeth Arké Project aims at
digitizing hundreds of books in the field of Syriac studies and making them
available through the Internet in what will be the largest eLibrary in this
field. The project is being led by Beth Mardutho in association with a number of
prestigious university libraries including Brigham Young University, Brown
University, The Catholic University of America, Duke University, Harvard's
Dumbarton Oak's Library, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the Asia Pacific
Theological Seminary. Direct donations towards the eBeth Arké Project are being
accepted on www.bethmardutho.org

Beth Mardutho asks its patrons to use the links on
www.bethmardutho.org for all their
future visits to Amazon.com, even for products not related to Syriac
studies. Beth Mardutho will earn money for any purchase made at Amazon.com that
began with a link from Beth Mardutho's web site. Help us bring Syriac studies to
the Third Millennium.
