Academic administrators see client/server as the wave of the future

Library Systems Newsletter [October 1997]

Academic institutions spend approximately $4.5 billion on computer technology each year. In an informal telephone survey of computer center heads of 60 of the nation's 3,000 colleges and universities it was asked if they expect to move to client/server technology in the next few years. Twenty percent said that their campuses have already virtually completed the transition to client/server; another 40 percent expect that transition to take until the end of 1998. A total of 75 percent (45 of 60) believe that campus departments, including libraries, will be required to specify client/server technology by the beginning of 1999.
