York University Computer Museum: A 20 Years Overview of Preservation, Research and Outreach
Presented by Zbigniew Stachniak

The York University Computer Museum (YUCoM) is a historical collection and research center for the history of computing in Canada. Its mission is to preserve, document, and interpret the history of the information age in Canada.

Formed in December 2002, YUCoM is the first museum dedicated exclusively to the history of the Canadian computer and IT industries.

The museum initiates and supports a broad range of activities from historical research and student supervision to exhibits, lectures, seminars, and other forms of public presentation.

Our presenter is Zbigniew Stachniak Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

"In this talk, I will discuss the museum's creation, mandate, and development. I will present the museum's major collections and archives, initiatives and accomplishments."

"Finally, I will talk about the museum's current initiatives, from the creation of a dedicated history of computing journal to new exhibits."

The Club's General Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at Faith United Church, 1778 Nash Road in Courtice, 7:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
