Economical Remote Terminals for Small Institutions. Final Report.
Kaupe, Arthur F., Jr.; And Others
The cost of providing adequate computer service is imposing an extraordinary strain on the budgets of many institutions of higher education, particularly small to medium sized institutions that do not have large, federally-funded research programs. They face 2 critical problems: (1) how to obtain sufficient computer services for student use so that a large percentage of their students can become familiar with the regularly used, modern, data processing techniques; and (2) how to provide adequate computer capability to hold and attract competent faculty members who wish to pursue research activities that require the use of large computing facilities. After careful analysis of the various modes available to small colleges, remote batch operations appear to provide the lowest cost alternative. It is convenient for administrative, student, and research uses, and is within the budgets of most small colleges. (HS)
