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.

19 Oct 2010

Committee on Research Materials on Southeast Asia (CORMOSEA), USA.

"International Directory of Southeast Asia Librarians, Compiled by Virginia Jing-yi Shih, University of California, Berkeley, February 2009.
[...] This International Directory of Southeast Asia Librarians supersedes the International Directory of Southeast Asia Librarians & Catalogers that I compiled in 1999. It is produced on behalf of the Committee on Research Materials on Southeast Asia (CORMOSEA) which is a committee of the Southeast Asia Council (SEAC) of the Association for Asian Studies. This directory primarily lists the individuals who work with the Southeast Asia collections [... in the countries listed below.] It is my hope that this directory will serve as a useful reference guide to facilitate professional communications and promote international cooperation of Southeast Asia scholarship and librarianship in the future. Each entry includes the following information as submitted to the compiler:
1) Full name; 2) Job title; 3) Institution address; 4) Telephone number; 5) Fax number; 6) Electronic mail address; 7) Home page (if available); 8) Language expertise (optional) [...]."
