The diverse requirements for computing facilities in education place heavy demands upon available resources. Although multiple or very large computers can supply such diverse needs, their cost makes them impractical for many institutions. Small computers which serve a few specific needs may be an economical answer. However, to serve operationally a significant segment of students, the multiplicity of computer installations with their operations staffing requirements would probably prove to be a false economy. APL (A Programing Language) is examined as an alternative to this dilemma. (Author/JY)
