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 -

Access Indonesia


School of Policy, Planning, and Development, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, US

Supplied note:
"Dear all: I am pleased to inform you about our official launching [8 Feb 2005 - ed.] of Access Indonesia website. The website is the principal output of a project jointly undertaken by University of Southern California (Los Angeles, United States) and Bandung Institute of Technology (Bandung, Indonesia). [...] The main purpose of the project is to foster a fuller interdisciplinary understanding of Indonesia through a 'one-stop website' (available both in English and in Bahasa Indonesia), which is designed for scholars, students, international development practitioners, policymakers, and the business community interested in Indonesia. [...]

The website is organized around six main sections:
(a) THEMES: [...] [Culture, Economy, Geography, History, and Politics] related to Indonesia. Each theme page contains full-text documents (including documents that are only accessible through our website), book and journal citations, and web-links. [...] (b) NEWS INDO SECTION: [...] news briefs of current news from Indonesia (updated weekly on Mondays). (c) STAT INDO SECTION: [...] statistical data on Indonesia both in excel and in html format (gathered from Indonesian and international organizations). (d) MAP INDO SECTION: [...] Web-GIS based thematic maps of Indonesia. (e) SLIDE INDO SECTION: [...] photographs from selected Indonesian cities (e.g. Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Banjarmasin) and a private collection by a professional photographer from Indonesia. (f) LEARNING TOOLKITS SECTION: It has one multiple choice quiz on different aspects of Indonesia and two map exercises to locate Indonesian islands and cities.

We also have a SPECIAL TSUNAMI SECTION that focuses on the disaster recovery and rebuilding processes in Aceh and North Sumatra, which were gravely affected by the recent Tsunami. We would be expanding this section during the coming months. We will soon be adding a BUSINESS MANUAL SECTION that may be of interest to those who would like to conduct business activities in or with Indonesia.
If you like to be informed about our activities and receive our weekly news summaries on Indonesia, please subscribe to our DIALOGUE INDO email list from the website. - km."
