If you're trying to find government-related information during the shutdown, libraries have come to the rescue. Mississippi State has a page with status updates, workarounds, and alternative sources.

Also, Google has changed some of its algorithms so that it can handle long questions (such as, for example, "Where should we go on vacation now that the Smithsonian has closed and even if it opens back up soon the original plan is now all screwed up and we don't have much time to think of an alternative?" Ahem).

The Shanghai Metro has a library!

Mandatory Thursday reading: The bookshop of the future is coming. It's...rather bright, if the photos are anything to go by. Also, libraries are still important.
