Does anyone have a report or white paper that discusses new cooling standards for server rooms?

I thought I ran across information a few years ago that talked about some research that indicated you don't need to run your server room or data center at 68 F and that a little warmer was really not that big of a deal.

Can anyone point me to some documentation on that fact or provide anecdotes of what you do? I assume that the big deal is the balance between temp and humidity and you obviously don't want it uncomfortable for humans to occupy, but not necessarily blowing 60 degree air just to keep things chilly.
