LEIDEN: INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR ASIAN STUDIES, 1996
This booklet purports to offer the results of a year’s work collecting information found on the Internet regarding Asian Studies. It is divided into two uneven parts: a user’s guide and a directory. The first provides an introduction to the ways of gaining access to the Internet, from file transfer protocol (FTP) and electronic mail, to discussion and mailing lists, Telnet, Gopher, and the World Wide Web (WWW). The second and much longer part is devoted to listings of Internet resources useful to Asian studies arranged according to electronic lists, Gopher sites, WWW sites, newsgroups, library catalogues, electronic publications, and various associations, societies, and institutes. Each section is subdivided further according to country and theme, providing network identification, full list address, and brief description.
