"Don't Be Fuelish: A Discussion on the 1973 United States Oil Embargo” Continuing conflicts in the Middle East and recent damage to oil rigs and oil refineries in the Gulf region sustained during hurricanes Katrina and Rita have caused fuel prices in the U.S. to rise steeply in the last year and have also caused sporadic shortages. These events have triggered a renewed concern among many Americans about current and future access to energy resources. The disruption has also reminded Americans of the energy crisis in the 1970s and early 1980s. Although the impact of today's energy problems appears similar to the impact associated with the earlier crisis, many of the root causes of the current American energy shortage are different from those that caused the energy crisis of the 1970s and 1980s. This exhibit provides a closer look at the policies and politics of the energy crisis of the 1970s and 1980s.

Science Library: The display features the two citation manager products procured through the Student Technology Fee for use at UGA.  The Libraries offers both Refworks, geared toward the undergraduates; and Endnote, for graduate students.  The creation and layout of the display was done by Lora Bergstrom, Science Reference student assistant, with input from the Science Reference Staff, especially Jacquie Houston.
