Topical Files [series]

The Topical Files series (6 linear feet, 1964-1997) includes a substantial amount of information on MERIT, MICIS (Michigan Inter-University Committee on Information Systems), Project EXTEND (Extending University Computing Resources into College Learning Activities) and the University Committee on Computer Policy and Utilization (UCCPU). The files in this series are arranged alphabetically. In addition, the subseries is valuable for the range of grant proposals, reports and other initiatives Zinn was involved in during this time period to learn about and integrate the use of microcomputers in education. Zinn includes additional context for many of the project files found within this series by his use of "notes" to the file. These notes, generally hand-written, are typically the first document located within a file.
