Computing at Stanford University has, until recently, been performed at one of five facilities. The Stanford hospital operates an IBM 370/135 mainly for administrative use. The university business office has an IBM 370/145 for its administrative needs and support of the medical clinic. Under the supervision of the Stanford Computation Center are three facilities: ACME with a 360/50 to provide computer support for medical research, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) has a 360/91, and the campus facility tries to provide flexibility for general use with a 360/67. There have been moves toward changing the facilities and administrative structure of computing at the university. With separate computing support for the hospital, clinic, and medical research areas, it was proposed that these facilities be consolidated to form a central computer center for medical use. SLAC also needed an expansion of its facility. In April 1973, all facilities were unified under a central administration and soon there will be just two computer centers, one on campus and one at SLAC. (WH)
