Sources of the full online versions of "The New Light of Myanmar", "Kyemon" ("The Mirror") and "Myanmar Alin"
The online locations of these publications have varied in 2013 with some sites closing down for a while, then re-opening - frequently with truncated archives. Foreverspace used to be the most consistent source. It has an archive back to 2003, but in recent months has often been offline or inactive. The Online Burma/Myanmar Library (OBL) uses all the sources and attempts to keep a complete archive. Check these sources for the latest issues if they are not in the OBL sections below.
