Activities and topics documented in this sub-series include IT systems planning, an external review of the Centre in 1975, development and implementation of the university's computing policies, operations of the Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) program, and the deliberations and activities of the University Computing Committee, the Ad Hoc Committee on Computing Science (1972), the Ad Hoc Committee on Academic Computing (1973-1974), the Computing Policy Committee, and the Systems Review Board.
