Where to Start when Previous Facilities Data are Questionable.

Web Abstract: 
Reviews the increasing awareness of the importance and difficulty in managing educational facilities as finite resources. The article discusses the clash of the value of research space with a lack of capital funds; the need to update, merge, and access data elements from multiple sources, including sponsored programs, finance, and personnel; and the theory of implementing change, the fitting of a new process into an existing institutional culture, and examples of actual experiences in implementing space systems. (Includes 4 references).
