This archive starts off with a history of the archive and a side link that contains 2 individual archives. One was made by “Matthew Kirschenbaum” and the other by “Doug Reside.” Each archive contains vintage computing equipment as well as documentation and pictures about each artifact. As for these two archives there are two ways to access the data. One is by a convenient search bar on the side and the other is a page view list of artifacts.
