Information on the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster is popping up everywhere. I am weary of much of it, particularly since BP has bought terms such as “oil spill” from search engine providers (including Google) to help direct Internet users to its website and thus attempting to control information pertaining to the worst oil spill in U.S. history. Here are a small handful of library research guides on the topic that I found helpful:

025.431: The Dewey blog
LSU Media Center
National Library of Medicine
Tulane University’s Louisiana Research Collection
Tulane University’s Earth & Environmental Sciences Research Guide
