ARLIS has launched a photo stream on Flickr, the popular photo sharing site. The stream consists of more than 2,000 images from the Exxon Valdez oil spill slide collection at ARLIS. All images in the ARLIS photo stream are in the public domain and available for reuse. The ARLIS photo stream on Flickr is available at www.flickr.com/photos/arlis-reference. High resolution images are available from ARLIS.

Exxon Valdez Oil Spill: Resources for Teachers and Students is available for download from ARLIS.

Mission without a Map: The Politics and Policies of Restoration Following the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill is available for download from ARLIS.

These video tapes comprise raw footage of the early days of the oil spill, its subsequent clean-up, shoreline evaluations, and many other government-led activities related to the spill. This footage may be copied without infringing on copyright and is in great demand internationally by filmmakers and researchers. About half of these videos have been cataloged and there is an index to the entire collection available at SPEC COLL GC1552.P75A37 1989, DVD GC1552.P75A37, and on the
ARLIS website . Most of the videos have been digitized in high resolution AVI format. Because most of the digitized videos are too large to fit on a single DVD, the most efficient way to deliver the videos is on external hard disk. Contact the ARLIS reference desk for more information.

The EVOS Trustee Council is charged with managing the funds from the 1991 settlement of litigation between the State of Alaska, United States and Exxon. This official record documents the Council’s decision process as they fund restoration projects, research and habitat protection in the spill area. The first drawer contains a paper index by number and topic. Some items are also available through the catalog in print and digitally

This collection, more than 2,400 color slides, covers the early days of the oil spill and subsequent clean-up efforts, and includes photos of oiled wildlife, the tanker leaking oil, public meetings, protests, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and Prudhoe Bay.
Originally available only in the form of 35mm slides, ARLIS has produced high resolution digital scans of these photographs. More than 1,100 images are now available as a photo stream on Flickr. The files are public domain and may be copied without infringing on copyright. There is an index by photo number. See an ARLIS reference librarian for assistance.
