This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Computers and Small Local Governments: Users and Uses," by Donald F. Norris and David R. DiMartino.
This is Part I of an article based on a CAUR survey of computing in small local governments in the plains and mountain states. The study was conducted under a grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.
Part I reports on the frequency of computer use by local governments, the types of computers used, system administration, typical uses, and attitudes toward and satisfaction with computer systems.
Part II, which will be published in the next issue, will present data on problems with computer use, the principal factors and information systems used to acquire computers, and future plans for acquisition and use.
