Overview

The Harvard University Information Technology Quarterly (formerly Newsletter), from which this collection of articles has been drawn, is highly regarded both for its wide range of exploration and for the depth of its discussion of new and emerging computer-related technologies. Included in this book are articles covering the origin and development of semiconductor technology, the microprocessor, telephony, xerography, electronic typesetting, videodisc technology, computer graphics, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

This book also discusses the impact of information technology on the university and the university library and continues an examination of information technology's role in the educational process. Each of the articles provides historical background and attractive illustrations that enrich the reader's understanding. From Sand to Circuits is both a fascinating compendium of models for understanding information technology and a lucid, highly enjoyable collection of essays.
