    Online film studies journal based in Australia that provides serious but not overly jargonistic articles, reviews of the latest books and films and information on international conferences and even runs job adverts. It also includes links to around forty other sites. It is certainly one of the most straightforward and enjoyable of the many film studies e-journals currently available.

    Part of the Internet Archive, which also covers archived moving images (The Internet Moving Images Archive), audio and software, the Wayback Machine holds cached versions of thousands of websites and billions of pages, allowing users to look at sites that are no longer available or at earlier versions of ones that are still around. An invaluable resource that, due to the gigantic nature of the holdings, is slightly hampered by the fact that no list of the holdings can be easily provided. This means inevitably that correct recall of the URL in question is necessary, or failing that, searching for it on the web first.

    The project focuses on five of the Yorkshire houses with significant standing ruins: Fountains, Rievaulx, and Byland principally, but also Roche and Kirkstall. The architecture of each site, explained in the context of other local churches (and European Cistercian abbeys), will open visual and textual windows onto the Cistercian way of life as experienced by the monks, the lay-brothers and their secular neighbours. Only partially completed, this project currently offers fascinating virtual tours of parts of the Kirkstall, Rievaulx and Roche Abbeys as well as a wealth of ancillary material.

    This extremely detailed resource from the University of Virginia provides a very large number of video and audio clips on Tibet and its peoples and culture which require QuickTime to access. They can be searched individually by collection or region or across the entire database. The encoding is decent, but the image size is rather small. The material goes as far back as the 1930s and clips vary in length for a few minutes to close to half an hour. It is possible to search the collection individually and by keyword, although accessing the materials can be a little bit laborious. The site is also available in Tibetan, Nipali, Chinese and Japanese.
