ADMINISTRATION WORK IN THE CENTER
This issue of the REGISTER features the relatively unglamorous work done in the Computing Center by the University Administration. Since the 7040 was put in use late last year the 1410 has been used almost exclusively by the Registration office and by Accounting and Payroll. While these operations are much less exciting that the research projects run on the 7040 they are essential to the operations of the school. In a very real sense, if it were not for the work done on the 1410 there would be no need for the 7040.
The Accounting Department is faced with the problem that a state university must do even more reporting to various agencies than any big company because such an institution, besides being faced with the federal, state, and local controls of ordinary business, must also supply information to the state and other agencies upon which it depends for funds, and to the various departments within the institution. Therefore, the Registration Department and the Accounting Department each maintain a staff of personnel to coordinate the development of various reports with the Computing Center staff, and also to run the reports when the programs have been written.
ACCOUNTING FUNCTIONS IN THE CENTER
MAMMOTH PROJECT COMPLETED
Selwyn Zerof, Computing Center Statistical Specialist, has recently completed a project which should prove of significant value to anyone making use of the computing facility. This project involved devising a simple method of making conveniently available to the casual user the statistical techniques in the Computing Center. Once such a procedure had been perfected Mr. Zerof undertook the compilation of a manual which details the procedure for making use of the Statistical Program Library.
