Moving the Program: The Final Report of Project CONDUIT at Dartmouth College.
Nevison, John M.; And Others
A two-year experiment in educational computer usage and program exchange sponsored by the National Science Foundation is described in the body of this review. The purpose of the project was to set up a prototype organization of five university computer centers in order to establish a set of procedures that would facilitate the efficient sharing of computer programs among the five centers. The main document in the report briefly describes: the reasons for having this kind of exchange program; the mechanics of the organization that was set up; the progress made in the first two years of the project; a review of the problems encountered in the moving of programs; and a set of conclusions and recommendations for those who may be involved in the moving of programs from one computer to another. The fifteen appendixes include discussions of a variety of related problem areas, and, together with the introduction, provide a valuable text that should be useful to anyone working with computers in the academic community.
