Mills, David L.
The Foreign Language Courier, n42 p4-15 June 1969
The operational characteristics of a modern equipment facility (random-access multiple-program system) being planned and constructed for the University of Michigan language laboratory and how it compares with the system it is to replace are summarized in this article. A technical description of the structural makeup of the system precedes an extensive discussion of its versatility, with special reference to its specific applications to language laboratories. Concluding portions treat arguments favoring the system and such engineering and economic considerations as program switching and control logic. (AF)
