Hamblen, John W., Ed.; Landis, Carolyn P., Ed.
This is the fourth in a series of interpretive reports on the use of Computers in Higher Education. This book is based on a 1976-77 survey.

The report also contains several interpretive essays designed to identify changes and trends in computer science and computer usage in higher education. Individual chapter titles are: Institutional Resources for Computing; Computer Systems Changes; Computing Center Organization; Administrative Uses of Computers; Instructional Uses of Computers; Changes in Research Computing in Higher Education; Computing in Minority Institutions - 1976-77; Networks and Special Service Organizations; Computer Science-Related Degree Programs at the Associate Level; and Computer Science-Related Degree Programs at the Bachelor's Level.
