The development, use, and management of information systems in higher education are examined in these proceedings of the 1979 College and University Systems Exchange (CAUSE) National Conference.

The remaining sessions are divided according to six general areas: management and information systems; development of information systems; use of information systems; small college information systems; vendor presentations; and contributed paper sessions (abstracts). Most of the 50 professional papers are included, such as: Management and Technology in Higher Education in the 1980's (Ronald W. Brady); Office of the Future--Today (Rosemary Nash); A Look at Information Processing of the 80's (Allen D.
