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.

Hmong Studies Internet Resource Center, Saint Paul, MN, USA.

"The WWW Hmong Homepage, first made available on the Internet in March, 1994 [Happy forthcoming 17th birthday! - ed.], is a volunteer effort bringing together a collection the Internet-based resources related to Hmong news and current-events, issues, history, publications, and culture. This site is an official Asian Studies WWW Virtual Library Associate site [http://coombs.anu.edu.au/WWWVL-AsianStudies.html]. The WWW Hmong Homepage was created by Craig D. Rice and Robin Vue-Benson in response to their shared interest in Hmong people and concerns and to personal encounters with Hmong repatriation and resettlement issues. Craig developed and managed the site from its inception in March, 1994 to August 2004. [...]
Since August, 2004, the WWW Hmong Homepage content has been edited by Dr. Mark E. Pfeifer. Dr. Mark E. Pfeifer is editor of the Hmong Studies Journal and the Hmong Studies Internet Resource Center (www.hmongstudies.org) [est. Oct 2001 - ed.]."
