DISCOVERY

Three classical myths to keep you awake

The gods in Greco-Roman mythology suffered from many of the same foibles as humans, but combined with their powers and immortality, they could prove quite dangerous. Perhaps most so when they saw mortals sleeping.

HIGHLIGHT

Case study: Preserving and sharing a school’s rich history

In 1918, Santa Rosa Junior College offered its first classes on a high school campus and its student body numbered only 19. Today, it boasts more than 22,000 students and some 1,000 faculty members across five campus locations. Such a rich history demands to be preserved and remembered. Enter Shared Shelf.
