Poster Session 4: The Fourth Node on the Internet

The Fourth Node on the Internet: An Online Display and Digital Library Documenting ARPA Network History at the University of Utah

This project created a digital library and online exhibit to describe the University of Utah’s role in the early development of the Internet. An intern worked with librarians to conduct interviews and identify sources. Besides documenting institutional history, the project demonstrated a content creation role for academic libraries where library faculty and staff turn their attention to noteworthy but often ignored local materials, and collect them in way that makes them available to scholars world-wide.
