The Design and Testing of an Integrated Computer System for the Administrative Processes of the University. Progress Report.
Stanford Univ., CA.
This is the third in a series of reports on the activity carried out under Project INFO auspices at Stanford, and covers the period March 1971 - April 1972. During this time, the project has been principally engaged in continued development of the OASIS (Online Administrative Information System) data base management system and its implementation at Stanford in four major application areas; Student, Alumni/Gift, Employee, and Budget. The major objective of Project INFO is the design and testing of an integrated computer system for university administration. Of major importance during the reporting period was the award of a renewal grant by the Ford Foundation to continue the work of the project through August 1973. The work of the OASIS development team in the period since the last progress report has focused on completion of a number of system features not present in the prototype version, on adapting OASIS to new application requirements as they have become known, and on preparing for and supporting the installation of OASIS at two sites: The University of Vermont and Sherbrooke University. Appendixes include: Network Programing Techniques, Dissemination Activities, and OASIS Data Element Dictionaries. (Author/PG)
