A Philosophy of Computer Utilization in Higher Education.
Cohen, Eugene E.
Studies in Management, v2 n3 Oct 1972
The requisites for the development of sophisticated and meaningful information systems being applied in varying degrees in universities and colleges are discussed. It is suggested that a philosophy that provides for an adequate, reasonable amount of computer power for administrative use is mandatory, and that users should not be slaves to the computer. In planning computerized administrative systems, the users must actively participate to insure the validity of the systems in meeting their particular information needs in a manner that insures informational integrity. Suggestions are made for educating staff at all levels concerning computer problems, allocations, costs, and time, and for exchanging tested systems with other colleges and universities. (LBH)
