Description

InfoWorld is a information technology journal for IT and business professionals. Founded by Jim Warren in 1978 as “The Intelligent Machines Journal”, it was sold to the International Data Group in 1979 which changed the publication’s name to “InfoWorld” in early 1980. For holdings of The Intelligent Machines Journal see catalog # 102661039. The InfoWorld December 1980 issue is subtitled “The Newspaper for the Microcomputing Community”.

Reversion to tabloid newspaper format was announced with the August 26, 1985 (Vol. 7 no. 34) issue. The collection has an incomplete set of this important weekly publication.
