A question for the ages. Should the toilet paper roll hang under or over? It is clear from our scientific polling that most of you prefer that it hang over. In fact, it was proven that this was the original intent by a patent image of the designer’s clear diagram showing that toilet paper should hang over. The end.
It was a squeaker this time, but Apple still won the day with 27 votes versus 24 for Android. Somebody out there uses the Windows OS. Thank you for voting! Look out for our next question…
The HS/HSL will open one hour late on Saturday, July 15th at 9:00am instead of 8:00am. The Campus is completing a generator project and testing will extend until Saturday morning. There is concern that the Library could experience a power surge or outage during the testing, so a delayed opening was required.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
The U.S. is in the midst of an opioid epidemic, with approximately 12.5 million people who misused prescription opioids and over 33,000 deaths by opioid overdose in 2015. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) recently released a portal on Opiate Addiction and Treatment with links to help health professionals learn more about opioid-related topics. Topics include understanding addiction, opioid overdose, and recovery.
What are your plans for July 4th?
Your options were: barbecuing, hitting the beach, something else, or perhaps “nothing?”
Well, doing nothing is the big winner this time. Think of the benefits, it gives you time to reflect, de-stress and reinvigorate yourself. Huzzah for doing nothing. We are sorry for you poor folks who had to take exams and study.

The second whiteboard asked, “Who is your favorite Wonder Woman and Superman character?” Gal Gadot’s new version of Wonder Woman won with the most votes overall, but Christopher Reeve was still the sentimental choice and won in the Superman category. Thanks for voting!

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is excited to announce a new web resource, NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery.
NNLM RD3 is a place for librarians, information professionals, library and information science students, and interested individuals to learn about and discuss research data management throughout the data lifecycle for biomedical and scientific research. NNLM RD3 contains subject primers, professional development events, and information on the major components of research data management: data management, storage, and sharing. The subject primers provide introductory overviews on topic areas within data literacy, physical sciences, life sciences, and engineering.
Professional development opportunities will be continuously updated. The resources compiled on the site will help you learn the basics of data management and the ins and outs of data visualization, as well serve as a guide to regional and national level activities.
There was a temporary loss of internet access at the HS/HSL. It appears that service has now been restored. Please let us know if you are still having problems accessing our resources (firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-706-7995).
