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.

Faculty of Arts and Education, Murdoch University, Murdoch, WA, Australia / ACICIS, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

"The Australian Consortium for 'In-Country' Indonesian Studies (ACICIS [...]) is an innovative, non-profit, national educational consortium that was established in 1994 to develop and coordinate high-quality, semester-long study programs at Indonesian partner universities for Australian university students. Today ACICIS offers both semester-long and 6-week short course options in Indonesia and is also open to non-Australians and private individuals. ACICIS currently has 19 Australian member universities (including nearly all of Australia's leading institutions in the field of Indonesian studies), two European member universities (SOAS University of London and Leiden University), and the Asia New Zealand Foundation. It is coordinated by a small secretariat based at Murdoch University and governed by a National Reference Group consisting of senior Indonesian Studies academics representing all Australian states."
