Title ARPANET timeline 1969-1980
Date 2011-10-18
Description The University of Utah boasts of being the 4th node on the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), a project funded by the Department of Defense that developed into the Internet and changed the world. However, when researchers came to the University of Utah's Marriott Library trying to find more about the story, there was nothing. With the help of Ambra Gagliardi, a student intern, the Marriott Library's Digital Scholarship Lab set out to uncover the history of the ARPANET at the University of Utah and to develop a digital library of what was found. To aid in understanding the development of this network, an interactive timeline spanning the ARPANET's existence (1969-1980) was created by Justin Sorensen, the Geospatial Information Specialist. Using information provided by Jimmy Miklavcic, maps containing nodes and connections were created for each year using ArcGIS. A timeline was then created using Adobe Captivate, displaying the map for each year along with available node information through a user-friendly interface.
