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.

Supplied note:
"Please update your bookmarks and links!
Work on the switchover from www.aasianst.org to our new URL: http://www.asian-studies.org was completed in early January, 2009.
The old URL still works but will eventually be phased out. In the meantime, please update your bookmarks to any AAS pages.
LINKING TO THE AAS WEBSITE: If you or your department's or school's website has a link to AAS, please change any reference to aasianst.org in the link to asian-studies.org (the remainder of the link will remain the same).
E-MAIL ADDRESSES: Also, note that AAS Secretariat e-mails now end with @asian-studies.org. Please update your e-mail address book when corresponding with AAS Secretariat staff. Correspondence sent to the old aasianst.org addresses will be automatically forwarded for a short period before eventually being phased out.
We hope the new more intuitive URL will be appreciated by members and the Asian studies community. - di."
