We've just been told that our campus website platform is moving to Drupal. I'm looking for some libraries who use this for their sites so we can see examples of what we can do. Any pros/cons/FYIs would also be appreciated.
There are some examples in the FleetThought portfolio -- http://fleetthought.com/ -- since one of the Jarrells is a librarian, they have libraries as customers. :) - Jenica
Oh, there are some lovely sites linked from there. Thank you! - GretelSK
Digital-library platforms built on Drupal include Islandora and Mukurtu, so checking out their sites for installation lists might help you too. - RepoRat
Ours is on Drupal, though I wouldn't hold it up as a paragon of anything: http://www.saintmarys.edu/library also, LibGuides is built on Drupal, if I'm not mistaken. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod

Scientists agree: Coffee naps are better than coffee or naps alone - Vox - http://www.vox.com/2014...
Scientists agree: Coffee naps are better than coffee or naps alone - Vox
"If you're feeling sleepy and want to wake yourself up — and have 20 minutes or so to spare before you need to be fully alert — there's something you should try. It's more effective than drinking a cup of coffee or taking a quick nap. It's drinking a cup of coffee and then taking a quick nap. This is called a coffee nap. It might sound crazy: conventional wisdom is that caffeine interferes with sleep. But if you caffeinate immediately before napping and sleep for 20 minutes or less, you can exploit a quirk in the way your both sleep and caffeine affect your brain to maximize alertness. Here's the science behind the idea." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
It's science! - Todd Hoff

going over my finances again today I realized I squirreled away a month's salary in a CD awhile back. praises be for all the advice I was given over the years to have an emergency fund, and bless you past self for heeding it.

also I sent the email to the fam I've been dreading, so that's done. fingers crossed they respect my request to not pepper me with questions I can't answer. nor raise their own DefCon level at me and freak me out even more. honestly, my family can be great in a crisis, but not in a Keep Calm kinda way. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
another positive: followed up with my musician friend's offer from the other night and he has already contacted the guy he had in mind and said he'd let me know when he hears back. so sweet of him to do. regardless of what comes of it, the gesture is incredibly heartwarming (even if it's because we made out that one night 20 years ago). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

Hey, so something serious. I've been thinking about my new blog, and I was contemplating not mentioning anyone personally. I've decided to stick with it. I think it might be refreshing and less likely to intrude on anyone's privacy. Maybe someday I'll post a reference to who is involved in my stories—but only if they agree. – cristoblanco.com

Email could never be invented today. All new successful comm platforms are about proprietary products that own the customer relationship.
To be fair email was an answer to a problem posed by the poor disconnected networks of the day. We have different systems today because the technology allows it. The rest is just greed. - Todd Hoff
But as long as you own the email addresses used by your customers, along with their entire address book, you own the relationships. - April Russo

Doctor Who's Jenna-Louise Coleman quits role as Time Lord's assistant and will leave at Christmas - Mirror Online
"Doctor Who’s companion Jenna-Louise Coleman is set to leave the hit BBC show. The actress, 28, is believed to be quitting her role as the Time Lord’s assistant in a sensational Christmas storyline. Her exit could bring an end to her 18 months as Clara Oswald, creating a vacancy for another sidekick to star alongside new Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet
Whaaaa??? - Julian
While it's probable, The Mirror isn't the most trustworthy source (or so I've heard). I can see how it'd make sense story-wise, though. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Gosh, am not sure any of our papers are wholly trustworthy, and The Mirror is certainly towards the more sensationalist end of the spectrum. But having said that I ain't surprised. Not loving the idea of older Doc and young girl. But that could just be me... - 'H'institches #TeamMarina from Android
Helen, I had to smile about your comment since The Doctors have had centuries on their companions. ;-) The previews and hints about Series 8 lean toward the show becoming a bit more serious and even dark. While I'm completely fine with that, I'm ready for a new companion. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I'm ready also for better writing - maʀtha
Personally I don't think the series is going to survive beyond Capaldi. My guess is he will be the last regeneration for awhile. - Soup in a TARDIS

Climatologist Who Predicted California Drought 10 Years Ago Says It May Soon Be 'Even More Dire' | ThinkProgress
"Back in 2004, Sloan, professor of Earth sciences at UC Santa Cruz, and her graduate student Jacob Sewall published, “Disappearing Arctic sea ice reduces available water in the American west” (subs. req’d). They used powerful computers “to simulate the effects of reduced Arctic sea ice,” and “their most striking finding was a significant reduction in rain and snowfall in the American West.” “Where the sea ice is reduced, heat transfer from the ocean warms the atmosphere, resulting in a rising column of relatively warm air,” Sewall said. “The shift in storm tracks over North America was linked to the formation of these columns of warmer air over areas of reduced sea ice.” In January, Sewall wrote me that “both the pattern and even the magnitude of the anomaly looks very similar to what the models predicted in the 2005 study (see Fig. 3a [below]).”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Does anyone have any examples of libraries that prepare creative, effective, or otherwise remarkable annual reports (and make them available to the public)?
Was this a rhetorical question? <d&r> - Deborah Fitchett
Haha, sadly, no it was not. - Freeda B.
I don't think I've ever read a library's annual report - Christina Pikas
I have, a couple of them (local public libraries), but none that I'd call remarkable. "Serviceable and in reasonably clear English" is enough of a hurdle in most cases. - Walt Crawford
