Hyphen Magazine Covers Asian Americans in Texas, Kansas and Minnesota, not just the critical mass living in California and New York. It features emerging artists, thinkers and doers, not only the few established Asian Americans who have mainstream approval. It is a magazine that looked beyond identity, but explores cultural issues while tackling what is Asian American by accident, by tangent or by happenstance. --Paraphrased from the magazine's About page.

South Pacific Islander Organization: "We are democratizing Pacific Islander access to higher education and professsional opportunities through digital resources."

UCLA Asian American Studies Center: The largest university-housed Asian American studies program in the United States. This page has links to databases, archives, projects, and other resources.

Vietnamese American Oral History Project: This UC Irvine project highlights the Vietnamese American experience through the collection of personal stories.
