(Trouble with broken links or HTTP 404 Error: Page not found?)


The World Wide Web Virtual Library for Papua conforms to the standards set out by the WWW-VL consortium (see http://vlib.org). It is set out as a series of short thematic essays with links and is intended as a guide to the wide range of resources about Papua available via the world wide web (www). The links include a variety of cultural, scientific, economic, social and political content, reflecting Papuaweb's commitment to providing a substantial but non-aligned research resource. The Papuaweb virtual library does not list all Papua related pages on the www (this is attempted at http://papua.pagina.nl, a website which was a useful resource in the creation of this annotated list). Instead this Papua www-vl provides some context and a digest of content for a selection of the key webpages, homepages and websites. It is recommended that researchers use this guide to web resources in conjunction with Van Baal et al (1984) Irian Jaya: A Bibliography which remains the best general reference to published materials about Papua/Irian.

Disclaimer: Papuaweb does not endorse any of the links referred to on this page and advises that these resources should be used selectively and be appropriately acknowledged (see the Papuaweb disclaimer and conditions of use for more information). Many articles are published on the World Wide Web with little scrutiny or accountability for content and most remain outside any system of peer review. While institutions concerned with their credibility may endeavour to provide reliable web-based information, even the most impressive websites are written with individual or organisational bias. Researchers are encouraged to retain their discretion and critical judgement in their assessment of all web-based resources.

It should also be noted that while some of the sections that follow have been annotated, other sections (indicated by an asterisk*) are not yet available. The listing and annotation of these links is a time consuming process and the dynamic nature of the www means that this list will remain a work in progress. In the future it may be re-organised into an annotated database where websites and webpages could be searched by keywords and extracted as a list. We welcome your comments, suggestions for additional sites and contributions to the Papua www-vl and your notification of any broken links. Please direct any correspondence to infopapuaweb.org.

Broken links and lost pages

Websites and webpages often change addresses (URLs) without warning and many websites and pages are launched without subsequent maintenance or may disappear from the www completely. Papuaweb has deliberately kept links to websites or pages which may have disappeared from the web because many www pages which no longer have current URLs can now be found by using the Internet Archive (www.archive.org). If you are trying to find information about a website listed in the Papua www-vl, simply right click the link and "copy shortcut" (the site URL - e.g. http://www.papuaweb.org), then paste this into the Wayback Machine for results. Note: The Internet Archive may also be used as a "mirror" site for website and webpages housed on "clogged" (overloaded) servers or where internet access is slow or temporarily unavailable. Despite occasional "glitches" (problems rendering archived records), the Wayback Machine is an incredible resource. You will be amazed !!

Other useful tips:

  • This www-vl lists many webpages and websites with known relevance to Papua, without restricting these to any specific language group. The world wide web (www) country suffix is a good general indicator of the language used in these various pages or sites. The host country can be identified by the abbreviation at the end of any website address. Examples include Indonesian sites (www….id), Australian sites (www…au), Netherland sites (www….nl), German sites (www…..de), United Kingdom sites (www….uk), Japanese sites (www….jp), etc. For sites registered in the United States of America (abbreviated as USA or US), the country code is almost always omitted even though these websites are not necessarily in English. To avoid this ambiguity websites listed in this essay with language content that does not correspond to the country code in the URL are given a separate language marker. For example, www.infopapua.com is a US-registered website which may be expected to be an English language site, but is actually based in Jayapura and is only available in Indonesian. Such websites are listed with country abbreviations (following the www system described above) to denote the dominant language of pages (for example "ID: www.infopapua.com"). Where English is provided as an alternative on websites not registered in English language speaking countries, this is denoted by (E: www....) rather than by a country signifier like .uk, .au, etc.

  • Not all URLs (Universal Resource Locators) listed here link directly to Papuan webpages, although related content can usually be found through a local search engine at such sites. This has been done for two reasons: 1) some websites do not allow direct links to webpages and 2) when there are multiple references to Papua on a single website it is more efficient for users to be directed to the primary URL from which they can conduct a local search for Papuan content.

  • Users of search engines should remember to use the following keywords (which correspond to the years indicated in brackets) when looking for information about Papua (additional terms which may be useful are "West New Guinea", "New Guinea Barat" and "West Papua"):

    • "Netherlands New Guinea" or "Nederlands Nieuw Guinea" (before 1962)
    • "West Papua" (1961+)
    • "Irian Barat" (1962-1973)
    • "Irian Jaya" (1973+)
    • "Papua" (2000+)
    • Provinces of: "Papua", "Irian Jaya Barat" (2003+)
    • Provinces of: "Papua", "Papua Barat" / "West Papua" (2007+)
    • Proposed Provinces of: "Papua Barat", "Teluk Cendrawasih", "Papua Selatan", "Papua Utara", "Pegunungan Tengah" ...

  • URLs are "hot-linked", but URL pseudonyms have not been used in this webpage. This means users may print or download copies of this text and it will retain complete URL details.

  • URL links appears as "http://" in this text whenever the prefix "www…." can not to be used in locating the page or website reference.

Note: This virtual library is written and maintained by Mike Cookson on a voluntary basis and in compliance with the standards established by the World Wide Web Virtual Library consortium (http://vlib.org). It was developed from a preliminary list of web resources about Papua first published as "Papua on the Net" in Inside Indonesia No.67, a special edition on Papua. This Virtual Library is reconceptualised in a subsequent article "Papua webs: Web-based resources related to Indonesian Papua and West Papua" written for Inside Indonesia No.94, a second special issue on Papua issued in October 2008.
