We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Olivetti BCS 3030 Operators' Guide

This manual contains an assortment of different guides and routine for the Olivetti BCS 3030.  In the introduction, it is stated that 'when user-systems are installed, appropriate sections from this Operators' Guide are to be modified according to user requirements and compiled with any specially written sections to form a user-specific Operators' Guide.

This appears to have been the case with this manual - there are a number of additional sections beyond those listed in the contents, covering dates from 1978 to 1980.  This means it is very difficult to determine an order for the pages in this document, as most of the added pages for extra routines lack page numbers.

The document is kept in a ring-bound black Olivetti folder.  A digital copy has been made and can be downloaded from this page.

338 pages.
