The Computer Conservation Society is inter alia a special interest group of BCS the Chartered Institure for IT. That said, membership of CCS is open to anybody with an interest in the history of computers and computing, whether they be BCS members or not. There are no membership fees for joining the Computer Conservation Society.
Administrative arrangements differ according to whether you are a BCS member or not —
Although there are no subscriptions to the Computer Conservation Society we do welcome small donations to support the work which we undertake. Each year we ask members to donate £15 or more to a ring-fenced fund which we use to support our projects and other worthwhile objectives in the field of computer restoration and history. This is, of course, completely voluntary – there is no obligation to contribute. Should you feel moved to contribute at any time please go to our donations page to find out about how to make a donation.
Members of the CCS who are also BCS members receive a free printed copy of the Society journal Resurrection four times a year as will any CCS members aged 60 and over who are also former-BCS members of at least five year’s standing. Other CCS members are invited to subscribe to Resurrection for the modest sum of £10.00 for four issues. Start from the Resurrection section of this website to subscribe.
In any event you may read Resurrection online at the Resurrection section of this website.
Annals of the History of Computing
Since the beginning of 2003, CCS members have benefited under an arrangement whereby they can subscribe to the IEEE’s Annals of the History of Computing at a reduced rate, provided that enough members sign up to make the scheme viable. To take advantage of this scheme, please contact Doron Swade () who administers the quarterly distribution of the Annals to CCS subscribers.
