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 -

Indica-et-Buddhica.org: Materials for Indology and Buddhology


indica-et-buddhica.org, Oxford, New Zealand.

"Indica-et-buddhica.org-Catalogus bibliothecarum (ieb-cb) is a virtual union catalogue providing centralised access to library servers with significant indological and buddhological collections.
Searches can be conducted using a range of attributes, terms and operators. Records can be retrieved in various syntaxes, formats and quantities. In addition to bibliographical data, many records contain location, holding and availability details.
Ieb-cb is designed to facilitate the transfer of indological and buddhological data across large networks. It will enable researchers to rapidly locate and obtain records from widely distributed library servers. "
Site contents: *Indica-et-Buddhica.org-Catalogus bibliothecarum: A Virtual Union Catalogue homepage; * Indica-et-Buddhica.org: Notes on Accessibility, Compatibility &c.

An elegant, and most informative site with a powerful, user-hostile interface. Definitely not for the fainthearted researchers - ed.
