Gulf Oil Spill

News is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from a variety of media. You can keep yourself up to date with newspapers, TV (including 24 hour news networks,) radio, Internet, and news delivered to your cell phone. Despite this information inundation, it can be hard to figure out what's actually going on and decide for yourself what to think and do about it.

An example is the current Gulf Oil Spill crisis. It's easy enough to find out what news anchors and political pundits are saying, but it's harder to know the science, business deals, and politics behind the polished press releases. That's where good research skills and access to a library become useful.
