Challenges and Opportunities of Information Technology in the 90s. Proceedings of the CAUSE National Conference (Miami Beach, Florida, November 27-30, 1990).
CAUSE, Boulder, CO.
Papers from the 1990 CAUSE conference on information technology in higher education are presented. They are organized according to the conference's eight concurrent tracks in the general areas of policy and planning, management, organization, and support services, as well as in the specialized areas of communications, hardware/software strategies, and applications. The 47 papers include the keynote address, "Challenges and Opportunities" by Robert C. Heterick, Jr., which summarized changes in campus environments over the past two decades and suggests ways in which higher education will have to meet new demands with limited resources, and the luncheon address "Competing with Computing" by James C. Wetherbe which emphasized that effectiveness, rather than efficiency, should be the focus of information systems. Also provided are summaries of the Current Issues, Round Table, and Ask the Experts sessions and Constituent Group meetings. Several black and white photographs illustrate the document. (GLR)
