Main Library: Books donated to UGA by the Chinese government form the centerpiece of a display of related materials in recognition of a visit by a delegation from Jilin University. The group of 30 Chinese administrators are visiting the Institute of Higher Education to receive training in higher ed management. Another exhibit looks back 10 years to several events held at UGA when Georgia hosted the Olympics. These two exhibits are also represented at the Science Library.

Russell Library: "Power to the People," a look at the Rural Electrification Act and its effects on Georgia and its people. Remember, group tours can be arranged ... Spread the word!

Also in Russell:

"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.
