Oil Drilling and National Parks Print Page



A search of the WGTC catalog returned no titles on the oil drilling in National Parks controversy. But, there are many articles and some books on the subject in GALILEO. You can also use our Interlibrary loan services to borrow books from other college libraries.

There are many web sites that provide infromation and discussion on this topic.





GALILEO:  On campus link from Library’s page, off campus you will need a password.  Obtain password  from library or instructor. Click on Databases A-Z and search the following databases:

Sample searches: I used  the terms “oil drilling” and “national parks”   and “oil spills” and “national parks” 

I found dozens of articles on the topic in these databases.



World Wide Web


The Department of the Interior has a lot of information on both sides of this topic.  Go to the site and do a search for oil drilling and national parks.


eHow at has articles and other information on government polices and pros and cons on the topic.


The National Park Service site at www. also has many articles that discuss both sides.


National Parks Traveler at provides commentary and news about issues affecting the national parks.




Link to this opposing view database can be found at the bottom of the library's web page.



An excellent database that discusses both sides of many topics.
