Dear Reader,

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 -

Center for Japanese Studies (CJS), University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, US

"The Center for Japanese Studies (CJS) promotes and disseminates research on Japan, fosters communication among diverse disciplines, and encourages new approaches in the understanding of Japan and its place in the world. Founded in 1947, CJS is the oldest interdisciplinary center in the United States devoted exclusively to Japanese Studies. CJS is also part of The University of Michigan's East Asia U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center, along with the Center for Chinese Studies and the Center for Korean Studies. [...] CJS Publications Program Founded in 1950, CJS's Publications Program publishes research on Japan. Works appear in three series (Michigan Monograph Series in Japanese Studies, Michigan Papers in Japanese Studies, and Michigan Classics in Japanese Studies) and as nonseries publications. [...] In addition, the Center makes books available in electronic format. In addition to having out-of-print books available online, we publish the peer-reviewed series Michigan Classics Online, and Faculty series, which contain online books and archival material edited by Center faculty members. Much of the archival material is in Japanese, and all books in English are available in searchable and downloadable formats."
