American Journal of Physics
written by T. Karcher, T. J. Burch, James Ruddick, J. Backman, and J. Caravella
A system of ten computers has been used for 2 years in a general physics laboratory.  This article lists the experiments in which standard laboratory equipment is replaced by on-line use of the computers.  The durability of the computers and student reaction to the system are evaluated.  In addition, hardware, software, and books found helpful in setting up and running the system are described.
