Microcomputers: Introduction to Features and Uses. Final Report.
Hecht, Myron; And Others
This introduction to microcomputers and their implementation and use in federal agencies discusses both basic concepts in microcomputers and their specific uses by clerical, administrative, professional, and technical federal personnel. Issues concerned with the use of specialized application software and integrated packages--word processing, data management, spreadsheets, graphics, and communications--are examined, as well as management and usage issues, and the types of microcomputer systems currently available and their appropriate uses. The motivations, costs, and risks of microcomputer use are identified, and recommendations for successful implementations are provided. A five-page reference list, a glossary, and a six-page annotated bibliography are included. (Author/LMM)
