A Study of Six University-Based Information Systems.
Marron, Beatrice; And Others
A methodology for categorically describing computer-based information systems was developed and applied to six university-based, NSF-supported systems. The systems under study all operate as retail information cneters primarily serving campus communities by accessing large commercially-available data bases using 3rd generation computer configurations. The systems vary in design philosophy, mode of user service, transferability characteristics, and operational status. A summary matrix is included. (Author)
