Title: Micro computer guidelines
Author: Tony Slade
Document Type: Monograph
The Region has a large number of microcomputers, a significant number of which are connected to Local Area Networks (LANs). Their use is becoming more widespread as power, portability and the availability of suitable software increase. It has therefore become necessary to formulate some guidelines to help users in the day-today operation of microcomputers. The aim of this document is to: improve the effectiveness of microcomputer usage within the Region: reduce the risks associated with such computers; promote the efficient use of the Regions computing resources; ensure that relevant legislation and technical standards are complied with. Until there are national standards and procedures, staff in the Region must comply with these guidelines. However, they are not intended to be a definitive judgment on the issues addressed and any questions concerning them should be discussed with the Helpdesk. In particular, this document is undoubtedly no substitute for a technical manual when dealing with detailed practical points.
