Computing and Information Systems Heritage Collection

The purpose of the Computing and Information Systems Heritage Collection is to document the development of the Department of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne, and illustrate the evolution of computer technology, teaching and research in computer science since the Department's foundation in 1955. The collection currently comprises over 700 items, including pieces of input and output equipment, historical calculators, components and other hardware, network equipment, media, and literature such as textbooks and conference proceedings. The collection includes items which were developed as research projects by the staff of the Department, or as systems to support teaching and research activities, some of which were commercialised and sold within Australia and internationally.
