Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Computing Manual (University of Wisconsin, 1952)

This manual was used in University of Wisconsin courses and it dates from 1952, making it one of the oldest such documents in our collection.

From the preface:

'With the rapid growth of separate computing installations in industry and in universities, there is need for a book to help train machine computers.  This book is intended as such an aid, particularly in training personnel for work in (IBM) punched card computing.'
