reg.burma archive (1993-2001): This is the 220MB archive of the IGC online conference which was the main vehicle for online Burma communications for most of the ’90s. The archive, which is fully searchable from the reg.burma search, contains all the issues of the BurmaNet News from 1993-2001 and its predecessors, early numbers of “Burma Issues” and about 30,000 pages of other material, including some long documents. This is the conference that was searchable from the “Burmanet Gopher” which disappeared a couple of years ago. Now, thanks to IGC, ibiblio and OBL, it is back for searching (not for posting).

Burma Press Summary: Complete Text Archive (i.e. minus graphics)  of Hugh MacDougall’s abstracts of “The Working People’s Daily” and “The New Light of Myanmar” April 1987 to December 1996. Many full texts of speeches, laws etc. An important resource for Burma researchers. Warning: some big files.
