EDUCATIONAL RECORDING AGENCY


Survey of off-air recording

This notice is to inform members of the University about a survey of
educational recordings in which the University is obliged to participate this
year, and to request co-operation in collecting the necessary information.

The University (including its constituent colleges) is covered by an
Educational Recording Agency (ERA) Licence to record radio and television
broadcasts and cable programmes for educational use, without infringing
copyright. The University pays about £24,000 per annum for this licence.

It is a condition of the licence that institutions may be required to
maintain
for a specified period of time details of radio and television recordings made
under the licence and to return this information to the ERA. Oxford University
has been selected to take part in ERA's survey during the period 1
September
1998 to 31 August 1999
and the University is therefore asking all
staff for
assistance in collating the information required.

In each department and college, and some faculty offices, an individual
has
been nominated as the local co-ordinator for the survey. All staff are asked
to
give details to the most appropriate co-ordinator of all recordings of radio
and
television programmes which they make for educational purposes whether at
home,
in the University, or elsewhere. The information required is the title, date,
and
channel of the programme, and the location where the recording was made. As
statistics have to be returned by the University at the end of every month,
it is
important that a co- ordinator is informed as soon as possible after a
recording
is made.

The identity of the local co-ordinator should be publicised in each
department, college, and (where appropriate) faculty office. If it is not clear,
the departmental administrator, senior tutor, or faculty office administrator
should be able to identify the co- ordinator. In cases of difficulty, details of
recordings can be passed instead to the University's central co-ordinator,
Miss
Catherine Long, at the ETRC (telephone: (2)70529, e-mail:
catherine.long@etrc.ox.ac.uk). It is, of course, necessary to pass information
about recordings only to one co-ordinator; there is no need, for example, to
inform both a college co-ordinator and a faculty co-ordinator but simply the
one
which is most convenient.

Please note that ERA are likely to visit the University at some stage
during
the survey period and to monitor the information returned against recordings
held
by the University. It is therefore important that the required information is
collected carefully and that recordings are available for inspection if
necessary. It is also important to note the requirement (which is general and
not
just for the period of the survey) that each recording should be labelled with
the date and time, and with the statement that `This recording is to be used
only
for educational purposes'.

It is hoped that the survey will not cause too much inconvenience, and
the
full co-operation of members of the University would be appreciated.

TAYLOR INSTITUTION LIBRARY

The Taylor Institution Library will be closed on Monday, 19 July, as there
will be no electricity in the building on that day.

From the start of the Long Vacation, the Main Library in St Giles' will be
affected by construction work for the Ashmolean Museum's new Chinese
Paintings Gallery. The areas most likely to be affected by noise are the
Periodicals Room and the stacks on the upper floors. Steps are being taken
to minimise disturbance from the construction, which will take place over
several months. The library apologises for the inconvenience to users.

UNIVERSITY HOLIDAY PLAY-SCHEME

focused body of research. It should include an Introduction, a Survey of
Literature, and a Conculsion. Current word limits and conditions remain in
place.

A D.Phil. thesis submitted under this rubric may include joint publications. In
that case, all co-authors must certify in writing to the Director of Graduate

the candidate.

Candidates wishing to proceed in this manner must

permission is sought that the scientific
