Networking in Higher Education: A Statewide Plan.
Braun, Thomas G.
The Council of Public Higher Education, Kentucky's higher education coordinating body, has developed a five-year plan to provide computing, consulting, and communication services for all of the public higher educational community, regardless of the size of the institution. The proposal includes a centralized network which provides instructional, research, and administrative services to participating institutions. Since the network serves a variety of different needs, diversity has been provided for by encouraging individualized equipment selection and independent creation of computer programs. The program, called Kentucky Educational Computer Network (KECNET), is managed by the Kentucky Educational Computer Board, a representative committee which makes crucial policy decisions. (EMH)
