All Authors / Contributors: Charles Babbage Institute,
OCLC Number: 62429870
Notes: Often many projects were sponsored by the government, so the researcher should also refer to the Charles Babbage Institute collections, United States Government Computing (CBI 63) and National Bureau of Standards Computer Literature Collection (CBI 32) for information on joint projects. However, most of the material that has been identified primarily with a single university will be found in Academic Computing (CBI 61), regardless of government sponsorship.

Abstract:

Contains literature about computer hardware, software, and systems that originated or were developed at specific academic institutions. Since many universities can be identified with certain developments in information processing, this collection provides some access to information about projects (such as Project MAC, and the ILLIAC, ORDVAC, and Whirlwind computers) and systems (such as ALOHA). Information about any one topic is not necessarily comprehensive, e.g. there may be only a few items relating to any one computer. In some cases the collection also includes information relating to the academic computing facility itself.

Added entries have been made for all subjects with at least 0.4 cubic feet of material in the collection.
