  • Documenting the Southeast Asian American Experience:  SEAAdoc. The University of California has initiated what has become the single best archival collection on Southeast Asian refugees and their descendants in the US with the Southeast Asia Archive. Some of their material is available here. There are brief overviews of the six main Southeast Asian ethnic groups: Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Hmong, Iu-Mien, and ethnic Chinese. These visuals are comprised of color photographs and primary documents, but there is an absence of links to contextual information which limits use for the general public. However, users can obtain instant images of significant historical events and social landmarks in various Southeast Asian American communities, and the site is recommended for all levels and libraries.
