Inventory of Computers in U.S. Higher Education 1969-1970. Utilization and Related Degree Programs.
Hamblen, John W.
All computer systems in use or on order in universities and colleges in the U.S. by June 30, 1970, are inventoried in this report, along with a description of what they cost, how they are used, and how they fit into faculty and student research and administrative needs. The report does not identify individual installations. Most of its more than 300 pages consist of summaries of questionnaires that were completed by 2,100 of the total population of 2,800 colleges and universities in the U.S. The report shows that 1,308 of the institutions which responded had computer installations; the remainder, serving a total of 845,000 students, said they had no access to any computers. Computer expenditures by colleges and universities during the 1969-70 academic year totalled $472 million, and the report projects 1980 expenditures to exceed one billion dollars. (MG)
