The Affirmative Action and Diversity Project: A Web Page for Research
http://humanitas.ucsb.edu/projects/aa/aa.html

According to its mission statement, the "site presents diverse opinions regarding Affirmative Action topics; rather than taking a singular pro or con position, it is designed to help lend many different voices to the debates surrounding the issues of Affirmative Action. This site is an academic resource and it provides scholars, students, and the interested public with on-site articles and theoretical analyses, policy documents, current legislative updates, and an annotated bibliography of research and teaching materials." Because of the physical location of this resource at the University of California, Santa Barbara, it contains a substantial amount of information on California.
