OeGIG (Oesterreichische Gesellschaft fuer Informatikgeschichte - Austrian Society for History of Computer Science)

The Austrian Society for History of Computer Science (OeGIG) is documenting the development of informatics in Austria and trying to make the results available to the general public and especially to schools.This center is subdivided into four departments: Archive, Museum, Library and the Documentation Center. The archive is collecting and analyzing papers, records and documents of leading Austrian scientists. The museum is divided into a real museum and a virtual museum. The real museum contains a collection of fully operational historical objects documenting and representing the history of informatics. The virtual museum in the Internet provides the possibility to follow the development of informatics and information technology in Austria. The library encloses a collection of media concerning the history of computer science and a special library. The documentation informs about current projects and their results. It also briefs about ongoing activities in the field of history of computer science in Austria and other countries. One of the main goals of the project is the long-term preservation of their digital material.
