National Library Week 2013

Energy in the Library

This year we celebrate National Library Week by highlighting energy research resources. This is a timely topic, as the College of Law is preparing to launch the new Center for the Law and Energy Resources in the Rockies on April 25th.

Contest

During Library Week we will be holding an Energy Research Resources Contest. Using some of the resources highlighted this week, answer the questions below. Submit your responses to lawref@uwyo.edu by noon on Friday, April 19th in order to be entered into a prize drawing.


  1. Using the Alternative Fuels Data Center (http://www.afdc.energy.gov/), find out how many alternative fuel stations there are in Wyoming. Tip: Choose Wyoming in the drop down Find State Information box.
  2. Using Wind Powering America (http://www.windpoweringamerica.gov/) find out 2012 Year End Wind Power Capacity for Wyoming. Tip: Find the Installed Wind Capacity graphic on the home page.
  3. In EnergyWire (a library database), do a search on the keyword Wyoming. Write down the title of an article that comes up in the results.
