Gartner Group Records Available to Researchers


The Charles Babbage Institute (CBI) at the University of Minnesota announces the availability of the Gartner Group Records (CBI 228). The 57 linear feet of materials was donated by Sarah and Gideon Gartner in 2010 and 2014. The collection documents a major information technology consultancy during the years 1981 to 2000. These records reflect the Gartner Group's role as a leading information technology research company, including correspondence, research files, technology research publications, published reports, client workshops and conferences, and documentation regarding information gathering and reporting.  Companies represented include International Business Machines and many others. The records must be consulted onsite. A detailed finding guide may be found at http://purl.umn.edu/202668. CBI makes available modest travel-to-collection support each year; the next application deadline is January 15, 2016.
