By 1995, a large part of the information generated by RAL in the computer area was web-based. It is unlikely, therefore, that much additional information will appear in this part of the web site. Other information should be available in electronic form from RAL. Some exceptions include:
- The Atlas newsletter was a glossy publication providing information about where further information could be found.
- The W3C UK Office's UK News. The early additions were produced as a two-column double-sided single page that could be mailed widely to try and raise awareness of the World Wide Web in the UK as, at the time, most UK companies still did not have access to the Web. From January 2000 until December 2006 it became an online publication. The W3C UK Office became the W3C UK and Ireland Office in 2002, and was moved from RAL to Nominet in October 2010.
- In 2009, Jack Meadows published a book Big Science Fifty Years of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (1957-2007). Chaper 5 discusses the history of computing at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and is included here.
- In 1996, Mike Wilson wrote a document describing the origins of DCI, the result of many departmental mergers. It includes some key developments along the way.
- RSA 1997 and RSA 1998 were the launch and concluding events for the European Commission's Leveraging action known as W3C-LA.
