The Ayn Rand Institute: The Center for
the Advancement of Objectivism has its own website (by the same name), which
is flagship of the official Objectivist
movement on the internet. The mission of the Ayn
Rand Institute is to promote the spread of Ayn Rand's ideas, and ultimately, of
the philosophy of Objectivism. ARI's website includes announcements of importance
to the Objectivist movement, biographical material on Ayn Rand, samples of Ayn Rand's
writing,a brief explanation of each of the branches of the philosophy of Objectivism,
a brief synopsis of the impact of Objectivism (e.g., in one survey, when asked which
book made a difference in their lives, the leading response was the bible; after that
came Atlas Shrugged), with a special focus on how the Ayn Rand Institute has
taken an active role in making this impact possible.

Welcome to the Objectivism Resource Guide! is part
of the website run by O(bjectivist) M(edia) S(ervices) Ventures. Here you
will find a search engine to websites whose sympathies lie with the Ayn Rand Institute and
Lyceum International offers courses, lectures, and seminars in continental
Europe, Great Britain, and the United States on Objectivism. Their website exists primarily to make available
information on what they have to offer.
