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.

South Asia Research Documentation Services (SARDS) 2


20 Mar 2006

Martin-Luther Universitat, Halle, Wittenberg, Germany

"SARDS 2 is an electronic database containing bibliographic references to South Asia research articles published in journals, collective volumes, conference proceedings, Festschriften, etc. SARDS 2 is a project of the Centre for Research in the Historiography and Intellectual Culture of Kashmir (adwm.indologie.uni-halle.de), hosted by the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg and headed by the Halle Chair in Indology. The focus of SARDS 2 is on the humanities and social sciences. To date, over 56.000 citations are electronically searchable, covering the period from 1786 until 2000. All entries can be downloaded and easily printed. SARDS 2 corresponds to the content of the database SARDS 1, initially issued on CD-ROM in 2002 for a limited circle of users (members of the Deutsche Morgenlaendische Gesellschaft (German Oriental Society)). SARDS 1 was based on bibliographic data systematically collected and indexed over a period of more than 30 years by Dr George Baumann (Tuebingen) ('Biblindo'). Andreas Pohlus (Halle) has increased Dr Baumann's data pool by a bibliography of articles of German Indologists (until 2000), put at the project's disposal by Albrecht Wezler (Hamburg)."
