ERIC Clearinghouse on Higher Education, Washington, DC.
The CRitical Issue Bibliography (CRIB) Sheet describes resources related to affirmative action. The bibliography is divided into four sections designed to help provide a foundation for those implementing an affirmative action program or conducting research on this topic. Overview describes resources that describe the history of affirmative action, explain the assumptions of affirmative action, and review the way affirmative action is being practiced. Practice focuses on documents that describe affirmative action programs in admissions, hiring, financial aid, and contracts. The third section, Legal/Policy, describes documents that provide a legal understanding of affirmative action, and the final section, Attitudes/Beliefs, targets documents that contribute to the understanding of opinions about affirmative action. The annotated bibliography contains 55 citations, all for documents in the ERIC database, and describes 3 Web sites for further information. (SLD)
