Free Access to Bell System Technical Journal (1922-1983)
As a gift to history, the Bell System Journal (1922-1983) is being made available for free.
Whilst quite niche (as most journals are, by definition), as it looks at the advances in telecomunications, it does provide access to the historical developments through a very important period for the industry and for developments as we approached the internet age.
Just looking at the last issue available (Dec 1983), it contains areticles such as
- “Two New Kinds of Biased Search Trees“
- “Theory of Program Testing – An Overview“
- “Theory of Reflection From Antireflection Coatings“
- “An Algebraic Theory of Relational Databases“
- “Parallel Fault Simulation Using Distributed Processing“
… showing the breadth of the material that was being covered, much of which could not be concieved in 1922.
Worth a browse.
