This is a good report for concepts and a historical background. The report is now five years old, so it is a little out of date, and there are newer resources available online.  The resources used are good, and some of those reports would be useful in research.

This is a web page that links to the pdf of a white paper supporting community-based learning. It is well-written and is substantiated with references. While not an easy read, it covers important topics, such as keeping students engaged in learning.
