The areas to be explored include conventional oil, natural gas, oil sands, coal, and premodern / alternate forms of energy. The website will rely heavily on multimedia elements. As such, Alberta Culture and Community Services is calling on all museums and archives that might have relevant artifact / image / oral history / video / audio etc. collections. They are also interested in any “leads” on people that might have relevant collections and/or could be interviewed for the project. The site will profile communities and people throughout Alberta with connections to the energy resource industries and will be integrated into the Alberta curriculum, so this represents an excellent opportunity for museums and archives to promote their collections.
