Rigney’s Apple /// computer

While consisting primarily of typescripts the collection also includes Rigney’s 1980s Apple /// computer. As you can see from the images below it does work. What you can’t see is that some of the keyboard keys don’t function as they should, in particular the number 8 key which lists what files are on the hard drive. Luckily for us there is a local Mac repair shop nearby and I’m hoping when I speak to him he’ll have some advice on how to repair it. If that’s not possible maybe he’ll at least have some advice on how to get the data off the hard drive and onto something more stable and accessible for our archive patrons.

      Sorry for the delay in reply. The processing of the collection is still ongoing but is on hold for the moment. There are some additional materials we are still waiting for. As soon as those materials are integrated into the collection I’ll be able to finish the finding aid for the collection, encode it, and upload it to our catalog and post it on this blog. Thanks for visiting and the comment!
