A new project documenting the history of the the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill is
now available online via the University of Alaska Fairbanks Elmer E.
Rasmuson Library’s Project Jukebox.

The new Exxon Valdez site contains conversations with 20 people talking
about the oil spill, the impact the spill had on their lives and on the
environment, the cleanup response, the long-term effects of the spill, and
changes in the oil industry monitoring system. Additional material includes
photos, videotape and journals.

The site was developed by the oral history department at Rasmuson Library
and the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’ Advisory Council.

This project was supported by funding from the Alaska State Library,
Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Alaska Resources Library and
Information Services, and the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’
Advisory Council.

Project Jukebox is the digital arm of the Rasmuson Library oral history
department. More than 35 projects on a variety of subjects integrate oral
history recordings with photographs, maps and text.
