From time to time the Society is approached by people who have come into the possession
of documents relevant to historic computers and who feel that they should
“go to a good home”.
Unfortunately the Computer Conservation Society is no longer in a position to
collect such material, though we can sometimes suggest a suitable home for it.
If you have a need to dispose of historic material we suggest that you should first read
our guide Archives and your Personal Papers.
In particular, we should stress that a list of the document titles is essential before
any progress can be made.
Document Exchange within the CCS
Because CCS members use widely differing IT systems, difficulties sometimes arise
when documents are sent between members.
In an attempt to minimise such problems a page of guidance notes can be found
The web page also contains useful information for authors of articles
in the CCS journal Resurrection.
Coming soon – the lecture programme for Autumn 2021!
Founded in 1989, the Computer Conservation Society is a joint venture between the
British Computer Society, the Science Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry
Our primary mission is to preserve historic computers, develop awareness of the history
of computing, and encourage research.
We run many specialised projects, organise public lecture series, and publish a regular journal.
