SCAMP-- A Computer-Based Information Delivery System for Cooperative Extension
Sarette, M.; Tette, J.; Barnard, J.
In 1977 the Integrated Pest Management Program requested and received support from the Extension Director and the Experiment Station Directors to initiate a computerbased information system, and basic ideas for such a system were obtained from Michigan State University. In early 1978 a system became operational under the name SCAMP, an acronymn for System for Computer-Aided Management of Pests. During its first year of operation, SCAMP linked the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva, the Cornell University Campus, seven county extension offices, and the IPM field personnel together for data and information exchange. Each participating county extension office was provided a computer terminal through funds appropriated by the Extension Director. Terminals at the college facilities were purchased through department and program funds.
