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.

Arts of China Consortium (ACC)

The Institute of Fine Arts (IFA), New York University, NY, US.

"The Arts of China Consortium (ACC) [formerly Chinese and Japanese Art History WWW Virtual Library] was founded in 2002 to promote the study and understanding of Chinese art history, archaeology, and visual and material culture, and to support the research and professional activities of its members. To encourage more informal dialogue among members, ACC conducts an e-mail listserv and maintains this website to provide information on graduate programs in Asian art, lectures/symposia/conferences, grants/fellowships, positions available, and web links to facilitate research and pedagogy. In keeping with the broad range of members' research and pedagogical practice, posted entries relate to the visual and material culture within the historical boundaries of China and Japan. [...] ACC is currently working towards gaining affiliation with the College Art Association and the Association for Asian Studies, where ACC hopes to organize annual thematic panel sessions. This site is a component of the Asian Studies WWW Virtual Library [http://coombs.anu.edu.au/WWWVL-AsianStudies.html] and the East Asia WWW Virtual Library [http://ea-vl.sbc.edu/]."
