Scope and Content

Correspondence and papers relating to computer programs, use of the University Atlas Computer, the use of computers for departmental purposes, the introduction of high speed data link and schemes for degrees in computer science.

The papers include minutes of the Atlas Users' Committee, applications for computer equipment to the UGC, Annual Report of the Computation Group, 1963-1964, and layout plans for proposed Atlas Computer Building. The file covers computing provision at the institution in the period before the Regional Computer Centre was established in 1969.
