A guide for the management of computer services in Ohio universities is given to enable university administrators to better plan the initiation and development of computer services and to provide criteria to measure the adequacy of their present services. The information contained is applicable to all universities and emphasizes the variety of practices to be found. Management is the key concern and is explicated in the following areas: planning (the development of goals and objectives), costs (the types of financial arrangements possible and the proper relationship of costs to income and institution size and needs), internal procedures, staffing and organization (internal organization and relation of computing services to the rest of the university), inter-university cooperation (time sharing and remote terminals). The detail and language of computer services relevant to management decisions are contained in this manual. Several appendixes describe aspects of computer services at different universities. (WH)
