Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Editor, Dr T. Matthew Ciolek.

H-Asia Discussion List - 10th Anniversary


H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences OnLine, Michigan State University, US

"H-Asia, [is] a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine [= an international consortium of scholars and teachers which sponsors over 100 free electronic, interactive newsletters ('lists') edited by scholars in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and the Pacific - ed.]. The primary purpose of H-ASIA is to enable historians and other Asia scholars to easily communicate current research and teaching interests; to discuss new articles, books, papers, approaches, methods and tools of analysis; to test new ideas and share comments and tips on teaching. H-Asia is especially committed to discussing region wide, comparative and professional issues important to scholars of Asia."

Site contents:
* General Information: (Subscribe!, Manage Subscription, Subscription Help, About H-Asia, Welcome Message Editors & Board); * H-Asia Resources (Discussion Logs, Discussion Threads, Resources, Links, Electronic Journals, KIAPS); * Related Lists: (H-Japan, H-USJapan, H-ANZAU, H-SEASIA); * Search H-Asia Logs; *Search all H-Net Logs; * Recent Book Reviews published by H-Asia; * Recent messages posted by H-Asia.

[The list, initially addressing no more than 12 readers, was first conceived and created by Steven A. Leibo of the Sage Colleges & Suny-Albany and Frank F. Conlon of the University of Washington. (See also "Asian Studies Online: a Timeline of Major Developments", coombs.anu.edu.au/asian-studies-timeline.html) The fledgeling H-Asia underwent a series of tests from the 15th of March 1994 onwards, and it went fully public on the 31st March of that year. During the 10 years of its exemplary operations the H-Asia list has disseminated over 22,000 posts, and now connects over 3500 subscribers. There is no doubt that H-Asia constitues the single most valuable, most useful and most seminal Asian Studies' resource available on the Net.
On the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of H-Asia, "The Asian Studies WWW Monitor" salutes and congratulates the H-Asia's editors - Frank Conlon, University of Washington (List Editor); Linda Dwyer, independent scholar (List Editor); Robert Entenmann, St. Olaf College (Review Editor); Sumit Guha, Brown University (Review Editor); Steven Leibo, The Sage Colleges & Suny-Albany (Web Editor, List Editor); Marilyn Levine, Lewis-Clark State College (List Editor); Ming-te Pan, SUNY Oswego (List Editor) as well as the members of H-Asia Advisory Board - Philip Brown of the Ohio State University and Yone Sugita of the Osaka University of Foreign Studies.
Splendidly done, dear Colleagues! Congratulations! All of you are a living legend! - tmciolek]
