"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 current display features posters depicting the research
of CURO (Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities)
scholars, in the Sciences. A total of eight posters will rotated through the display
over the next two monthes, with accompanying library
resources as applicable.

Circle Gallery: Wild-Life, an exhibition by UGA Assistant Professor of Art Tad Gloeckler, through May 30. According to Gloeckler, this show is an expression of his deep respect for nature, and a dedicated struggle to communicate relationships between natural systems and contemporary life.  His goal is to encourage viewers to re-examine their surroundings, develop interest in other earth life forms and processes and reflect upon their own personal values.
