The middle years cover the period from the midyear 1966 until 1982. During this period, the School's access to computing was through a central campus facility that was first called the Campus Computing Network (CCN) and later changed to the Office of Academic Computing (OAC). As the initial name implies, CCN established and maintained a network of computing devices on different parts of the campus, all linked to a central mainframe computer housed in the Math Sciences building. The WDPC facility became the North Node and the School used that node for its computational needs over this 16 year period. For more information, follow the CCN-OAC link under the timeline.
