Dear Reader,

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.

"The NewsLab Eurasia project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison aims to create a unique digital archive of television news from Russia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. Established with funding from the University of Wisconsin-Madison International Institute, the Department of Political Science, the Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) at the UW-Madison, and the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREEES) at the University of Texas at Austin, NewsLab Eurasia aims to be a valuable resource for scholars in the social sciences, as well as teachers and students of world languages. [...] The first phase of NewsLab Eurasia, NewsLab Russia, is now [Oct 2008 - ed.] on-line. In the future we plan to expand the scope of the project to digitally archive and code television news broadcasts from other parts of Eurasia and Central and Eastern Europe. Future projects may include news from Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Romania, and Uzbekistan."
