Abstract

The authors present the development and implementation of computing facilities at the Bolton School of Nursing. The approach differs from previous descriptions of school-based computing facilities in that it presents the professional and scientific context within which the system was conceived; the expected outcomes, direct and indirect, of investing in computing facilities; and the scientific and technical requirements to maximize its relevance to the mission and goals of the institution. A functional perspective of research development and facilitation among faculty and doctoral students is emphasized. The model system described is organized as a local area network of microcomputers with additional mainframe access.
