May 23, 2018 Celebrate the history of the Internet with an ARPANET Training Video
We have a bunch of great audio visual materials in our digital library, but one of my favorite items so far is this detailed dive into the past of the Internet, with this ARPANET training video. The University of Utah was one of the first four sites to host this early network, and the training video provides a window into what was involved in keeping an early packet switching network up and running.
What were the parts of a network??

Watch as the ARPANET node coordinator gets essential help with troubleshooting his network, including issues with disk drives.
Fortunately, everything gets all fixed up!
In addition to this video, the University of Utah Institutional Repository has a variety of technical reports, articles and theses that provide even more information about ARPANET, if you are interested in learning more!
