Abstract : The problem of managing computer facilities at educational institutions is examined. User categories are defined, and the interrelations between user requirements and the goals/objectives of the facility are discussed. Enumeration of the factors which influence computer facility operation is also accomplished. In addition, management information system theory is applied to the educational computer facility problem, and a proposed generalized management information system is developed. The over-all operation of the MIS is explained, and each component of the system is described. Future development, installation, and validation procedures are discussed. (Author)
