Target Audience: Librarians who are interested in learning about resources in the area of oil and gas law
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify oil and gas resources in print and online.
2. Participants will find out how to locate and use the resources described.

According to the Department of Energy, oil provides more than 40 percent of this country's energy, and more than 99 percent of fuel for vehicles. The Energy Information Administration's statistics list natural gas consumption in 2008 at 23.2 trillion cubic feet, the second highest amount on record. These numbers make it very clear that oil and gas are important parts of the entire nation's economy, not just of the economies of states with the largest deposits of them. Law librarians in academic, firm, government, and other environments need to be aware of how to conduct research in this field of law. This program will outline both primary and secondary sources concerning oil and gas law, and describe how to locate and use these materials.
