Thesis dealing with network futures

My Master of Education (MEd) minor thesis undertaken at the University of Melbourne (Melb) (MEd degree conferred in March 1984), is around 300,000 bytes in length, and is titled:
'The Network Nation: The relevance of this for possible educational and general public administrative structures and strategies in the 1980's and 90's.'

This thesis was subsequently published by the ERIC Clearinghouse on Information Resources, Syracuse University, New York, USA (ERIC document reference: ED247936). ERIC documents are available from many major University libraries, throughout the world, and often also via the World Wide Web, as in this case.

The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) site includes details on the ERIC service.
