Speaker: Mr. Jon Holgate (Cambridge University) https://indico.uknof.org.uk/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=38 In 1992, the University of Cambridge completed the installation of its own metropolitan wide fibre optic network, principally to support the transfer of ‘digital books’ for the Classics departments.
