The Students of CBI Sound Off

Hello. I'm Jessica H, a student worker here at CBI. I've been processing a new collection that I thought I'd mention, in case it's of interest. As a humanities student, the subject matter with which I work at CBI is often far removed from my normal sphere of study, so imagine my delight when my latest project focused on a computer programming language created to be used by other English majors like myself. The Charles Hall Papers trace the development and use of SNOBOL, a text-string oriented language widely used in the 80s and early 90s. It's been a fascinating read and once the EAD is finalized and online, I hope you enjoy perusing this collection as much as I have enjoyed working on it.
