Resource description

Bulletin board systems (BBSs), also known as computer bulletin boards, were a popular method of sharing and disseminating information during the 1980s and early 1990s. In that period they were generally closed systems, meaning they weren't connected to the Internet or other external networks, and were usually accessed via direct dial-in through a modem.
