Early Computing

Many collections held at the University of Melbourne Archives document the development of computing in the twentieth century. The radical economic and social change afforded by the computer revolution can be discovered within business, organisational and university-related historical material.

A guide to historical material relating to early computing held in the University of Melbourne Archives. Highlights include: CSIRAC at the University of Melbourne, technical difficulties experienced by early adopters of computing technology, women in early computing, and early calculation and computation machines.
