Computer science is a field of study in which the experimental and pragmatic aspects, while initially slighted in some curricula, are becoming recognized as playing an increasingly important role. This trend has undoubtedly been hastened by the reductions in hardware costs seen in recent years. As a result, a great many computer science departments in schools across the country are beginning to examine their own needs for computing facilities and other resources not likely to be available from a school's production computing facility.
