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.

"The mission of The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC) is to encourage and support scholarly study of the South Caucasus states (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia) in all fields from the earliest times to the present. ARISC will provide an ongoing American scholarly presence in each country in order to facilitate research and will establish and nurture ties between institutions and individuals. Further, ARISC will promote and encourage intellectual inquiry across boundaries within the South Caucasus and between the South Caucasus and adjacent areas. The exchange of scholars and scholarly information will be encouraged by the support of conferences, fellowship opportunities, publications, teaching resources, and other forms of cooperation for use both in the United States and in the host countries where the Institute is located."
