Drexel University acquires faculty papers from the dawn of the Macintosh

Drexel University Libraries announces the acquisition of a collection of faculty papers documenting the rise of microcomputing at Drexel. Tom Hewett, Professor of Psychology and Computer Science, began teaching at Drexel in 1973. He was one of the creators of the Drexel Disk, early courseware which aimed to "train novice users of a personal computer and to provide them with all the information they need to be able to use the machine and the facilities at Drexel." More information about this collection is available at archives.library.drexel.edu/hewett. To schedule an appointment to use the collection, please contact the Drexel University Archives.
