CBI is pleased to announce the electronic availability of Jim Cortada's 
computer-applications bibliography. You can download the book-length 
document (a large PDF file) here:


A Bibliographic Guide to the History of Computer Applications, 1950-1990
By James W. Cortada (compiler)

Published by Greenwood Press in 1996, and electronically published here 
with permission, this was the first bibliography on the applications of 
computing. The 1600 annotated entries are divided into two dozen sections 
on (e.g.) accounting, agriculture, airline reservations, architecture, 
banking, construction, education, insurance, legal, medical, military, and 
many more. This 100 MB PDF file contains ‘bookmarks’ to assist readers in 
locating entries. The book formed groundwork for Cortada’s _Digital Hand_ 

Best, Tom
