How long have you been developing Career information, and who are members of your organization? EUREKA has over 35 years as a public, not for profit, state-registered, self supporting consortium of subscribers. It is an association of educational institutions, largely schools, universities, social service agencies, and counseling professionals. It is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of representatives elected by and from our subscriber-members.

What motivated your organization to take on such a task? From our very beginnings, EUREKA has been user-oriented. In 1975, a rather informal group of Bay Area Computer Educators (BACE) set about the challenge to find or develop a career information system which would be useful in secondary schools as well as in colleges and public service agencies. They wanted a computer-based system which would be easy enough for the inexperienced, yet informative and comprehensive enough to be useful to even the most sophisticated user. In short, they wanted an information system which did not exist at that time. So in 1976, EUREKA, The California Career Information System came into being.
