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 -

Banglapedia: National Encyclopedia of Bangladesh


Asiatic Society of Bangladesh, Dhaka, Bangladesh

Supplied note:
"[This online edition of the] Banglapedia furnishes data, facts and information about all branches of knowledge - history and heritage, arts and humanities, society and economy, state and polity, ideas and institutions, philosophies and sciences, nature and environment, and so on. The editors have had in mind an audience comprising a broad range of interests and levels of knowledge regarding Bangladesh: students, scholars, educators, diplomats, administrators, and other professionals. Banglapedia, the national encyclopedia of Bangladesh, represents the fulfillment of over six years of effort [the work on the project was commenced in Feb 1997 - ed.] made by scores of intellectuals who joined the endeavour as planners, organisers, contributors, reviewers, editors, translators, researchers, designers, technicians, fund raisers, and so on. - zh."
