Want to see some old computers in action? Stop by Hagerty Library, Wednesday, May 11th, 4 - 6pm. While you're there, grab a snack, socialize with fellow enthusiasts, and learn about the history of computing. It's all happening at Drexel Archives' opening reception for its latest exhibit: 'Access for Everyone: Computing at Drexel, 1946 - 1984.'' Drexel University made history with its Microcomputer Project in 1984, which required all incoming freshman to purchase a personal computer. However, the history of computing at Drexel dates back to the very beginning of computer history. The reception includes refreshments and a live demo of vintage computers, co-sponsored by TechServ.
