Abstract This study presents the results of a nationwide survey of computer networks in higher education conducted during 1971-73. Five major and 18 minor networks were identified. The five major networks included: the ARPA Net, the California State College network, the University of Iowa/Iowa State University network, the Michigan Educational Research Information Triad, Inc., and the Triangle Universities Computation Center network in North Carolina. In-depth studies were conducted of the latter two nets. Based on the experiences of these operating networks, a number of factors are identified for consideration in developing networks. Finally, recommendations are advanced regarding the development of networks in higher education in the future.
