From the supplier: Cornell University’s administrative organization is highly decentralized, and of the 5,000 Macintosh computers on campus, nearly 1,000 are used, at least partly, for administrative purposes. Popular Macintosh applications at the school include: project management support, word processing, desktop publishing, spreadsheet calculation, budgeting, and student recordkeeping. High speed networks are used to join the Macintoshes to Cornell’s mainframe computer. The school also has an Apple Loaner Program that lets administrative departments experiment with Macintosh technology before purchasing equipment, and its Media Services unit uses Macintosh computers to help produce campus publications. Cornell is committed to using technology in support of its mission and goals, and the school expects to see such future microcomputer-related developments as custom programming of administrative applications, and wider networking capabilities.
