Description
The Bill Scull collection holds materials related to the field of multimedia product design and technology, and its intersection with higher education, created between 1985 to 1996. About half of the collection is made up of printed materials, such as technical reports, internal reports, research files, presentation materials, case studies, meeting agendas and notes, and promotional material. The collection also includes some newsletters and periodicals specifically related to higher education. The other half of the collection consists of software and its accompanying documentation. Formats include CDs, 3.5 inch floppy disks, 5.25 floppy disks, and laserdiscs, with a mix of packaged, demonstration, and promotional copies of software. Most of the software is educational and published between 1988 and 1994.
