The ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) SIGCHI (Special Interest Group on Computers and Human Interaction) History Task Force seeks one or more people in fields such as History of Science, History of Technology, or Information to design a structured repository of links to existing digital materials that record aspects of human-computer interaction (HCI) history, including artifacts, interviews, oral histories, surveys, and reflections. The job includes defining the metadata that enable effective search and identifying available material. The repository will be a resource for the HCI community and for historians.  We also seek one or more people in fields such as History of Science, History of Technology, or Ethnography to add to our supply of oral histories of our field. Reply by email with brief statement of interest to sigchi-history@acm.org.
