section



Decree (1): Impending nomination
to the Vice-Chancellorship

Explanatory note

Under the existing legislation governing nomination to
the Vice-Chancellorship (Tit. IX, Sect. III, cl. 7,
Statutes, 1997, p. 68), the nominating
committee is due to propose a name to Congregation by 30
September 1999 for the appointment of the Vice-Chancellor
to serve, in succession to the Master of Balliol, for
four years with effect from 1 October 2001. Since,
however, the report of the Commission of Inquiry, which
is currently under consideration within the University,
recommends changes in the length of and eligibility for
the Vice-Chancellorship, including the abolition of the
present two-year `run in' period for the
Vice-Chancellor-elect, as well as changes in the
composition of the nominating committee (recommendations
25 and 26, Report, paras 5.179, 5.181),
Council has agreed that it would be expedient to suspend
the current timetable pending decisions by the University
on these matters. The following decree provides
accordingly.

Text of Decree (1)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Tit. IX, Sect. III, cl.
7 (Statutes, 1997, p. 68), the Nominating
Committee for the Vice-Chancellorship shall not be
required to submit to Congregation by 30 September 1999
the name of a person to be appointed as Vice-Chancellor
with effect from 1 October 2001.

Gazette, Vol. 128, p. 1410), Dr P. Iredale
and Mrs C.M. Miles shall continue to serve as Nuffield

REVIEW OF THE SIR DUNN SCHOOL OF
PATHOLOGY

Under the University's procedures for the regular review
of faculties and departments, the General Board has set
up a committee under the chairmanship of Mr T.S.M.
Williams to review the Sir William Dunn School of
Pathology. The terms of the review are:

(a) to review the teaching and research
activities of the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology,
having regard to international standards of excellence,
and the future direction that these activities might be
expected to take, in particular with regard to the
continuing possibility of an expansion in medical student
numbers;

(b) to review the relationship of the
department with other relevant departments in the Science
Area and the Clinical School, taking account of current
discussions about the possibility of a more integrated
Medical School;

(c) to consider any changes which might be
desirable in the organisation and administrative
arrangements in the department;

(d) in consultation with the University
Surveyor, to review matters relating to existing
accommodation and future space needs of the department;

(e) to make recommendations, bearing in mind
constraints on the level of resources likely to be
available.

Members of the University who wish to contribute to the
review are asked to forward their submissions by Friday,
6 November, to the Secretary of the Review Committee, Ms
A. Flender, either in writing to the Medical School
Office, the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford OX3 9DU, or

SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN
CONGREGATION

Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council,
approved the following arrangements for junior members to
speak in Congregation under the terms of Ch. I, Sect x
(Statutes, 1997, p. 208), which reads as
follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XIV, Sect. iv,
§ 1, cl. 2, may speak at a meeting of Congregation,
if called upon to do so by the Chairman at the Chairman's
discretion, provided that the Chairman may at any time
terminate a debate on the floor of the House and proceed
to the final speeches and the taking of a vote.'

The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call
upon nominated representatives of the Oxford University
Student Union if they wish to speak in debate, and will
normally expect to call upon junior members to speak only
from among those who have given advance notice of their
wish to be called. Should the Chairman consider that the
number of junior members who have given such notice is
excessive, he or she will have to be selective in calling
upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure a balanced
debate in relation to the apparent spread and strength of
views held by junior members. If informed selection is to
be possible it is desirable that when giving notice of
the wish to be called a junior member should indicate
(a) whether he or she intends to support or
oppose the motion before the House, (b) whether
he or she would speak on behalf of any club, committee,
group, or association, (c) whether he or she is
supported by other junior members (up to twelve of whom
might sign the notice).

If the number giving notice is small they will all
be admitted to the floor of the House although this does
not ensure their being called. In other cases some
selection may be necessary at the stages of both
admission and calling of speakers. If there is to be time
to tell applicants whether they will be admitted notice
will have to be received in good time. Junior members
should therefore send in such notice, in writing, to the
Registrar to be received at the University Offices not
later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the debate in
question. The name of any representative nominated by
OUSU should also be communicated to the Registrar, in
writing, through the President by that time. A notice
will then be posted in the University Offices and on the
gate of the Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on
the morning of the debate, indicating whether all
applicants will be admitted to the floor of the House or,
if selection has had to take place, the names of those
selected for admission to the floor.

Junior members not admitted to the floor of the
House will normally be permitted to listen to the debate
from the gallery. Junior members on the floor of the
House will be asked to remain in their places while a
vote is being taken.

Under Tit. XIV, Sect. IV, § 1, cl. 2, junior
members are defined as `those persons who, having been
admitted to matriculation, are residing to fulfil the
requirements of any statute, decree, or regulation of the
University or reading for any degree, diploma, or
certificate of the University and who have not proceeded
to membership of Convocation'. (Membership of Convocation
is normally obtained by taking the MA degree.)

OLIS, THE UNIVERSITY'S LIBRARY
SYSTEM

OLIS, Oxford University's Library system, is an
integrated library system which offers on-line
cataloguing, circulation, acquisitions, and periodicals
registration. Eighty-four Oxford libraries now catalogue
onto OLIS. See below for a complete list of member
libraries with information about when they began
cataloguing and whether they also use the Acquisitions,
Circulation, or Periodical registration modules.

GeoWeb and GeoPAC, two new interfaces to OLIS, are
being introduced to coincide with the start of the new
academic year. It is anticipated that GeoWeb will be the
preferred method of access for readers in the general
academic community, although some may wish to use GeoPAC
for its superior display of unusual characters and
diacritics.

GeoWeb may be accessed at http://library.ox.ac.uk. It
will provide much of the functionality currently
available on the character-based OPAC, and will also:

—allow result set navigation record by record or by
selecting relative record number;

—provide hypertext links to other WWW resources via
URLs embedded within bibliographic records (links are
accessible at both the citation display and the full
record display screens);

—allow readers to combine searches from their search
history with new search terms;

—allow readers to `mark' search results, i.e. save
record pointers in order to facilitate subsequent access
to and/or the emailing of records.

In order to use GeoWeb, it is necessary to have
access to a WWW browser which is HTML 3.2 compliant,
supports forms and tables, and also supports JavaScript
(note: Microsoft Internet Explorer versions prior to 3.02
do not adequately support JavaScript).

GeoPAC will be available in some Oxford libraries
from the start of the new academic year. It will also be
possible for academic staff to download this graphical
user interface onto their PCs (downloading instructions
will be released shortly). In addition to much of the
functionality currently available on the character-based
OPAC, it offers:

—the full display of special characters and
diacritics;

—a customisable search query window;

—the display of search results summary information
in a `Display Manager' window;

—the option to store or save locally search results
in `Baskets' or collections of bibliographic
references.

OLIS is a union catalogue which contains cataloguing
information (i.e. bibliographic records) from all of the
member libraries. This enables a reader to search for any
book held in any OLIS member library from any terminal or
microcomputer connected to OLIS. Copy information (i.e.
shelfmark) which is specific to a particular library has
been separated so that when searching for a book, the
user will first be shown the copy information for the
items held in the library where the search is being made.
Information regarding other copies in Oxford libraries
will also frequently be available. It will still be
necessary to check other catalogues in the libraries
concerned to find information about holdings not yet
catalogued on OLIS. In common with most other academic
libraries in the UK, the catalogue can be searched from
any terminal capable of connection to the University's
network.

In 1996, the software underlying the OLIS system was
changed. Anyone returning to the University after an
absence of some years will thus be struck by differences
to the interface, as well as the increased size of the
catalogue and the enhanced functionality.

Retrospective conversion of card and other catalogues
into machine-readable form so that they can be
interrogated on-line has been recognised by the
University as a major priority. Following completion of a
University funded project to convert the Bodleian Guard
Book catalogue from 1920 onwards, the OLIS catalogue
currently has over 4.6 million copies attached to 3.2
million individual titles. The Bodleian Library's Pre-
1920 catalogue, comprising 1.2 million titles, has been
available on CD-ROM since January 1994, and preparations
are being made to convert and load this data into a
parallel OLIS database. A project to enable readers to
place on-line requests for material held in stacks in
Oxford libraries is also ongoing.

Printed catalogues in the Ashmolean, Economics, and
Taylor Institution Libraries are currently being
converted onto OLIS. A project to produce machine-
readable records for early printed books from the Inter-
Collegiate Catalogue is being funded jointly by HEFCE,
the University, and college donations. Details of the
project are available at http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/icc/.

On-line circulation (issuing, reservations, and
fines) has been introduced into thirty-six OLIS
libraries. This allows readers registered in these
libraries to find out what they have on loan and to place
reservations from any terminal. Automated self-issue is
also possible in most of the libraries using automated
circulation which provide twenty-four hour access for
part or all of their readership. On-line acquisitions
allows a reader to find out when a book has been ordered
and received by one of the forty libraries now using the
Acquisitions module. Ten libraries are now using the
periodicals registration module. This allows readers to
find out when a specific issue of a journal has been
received or declared missing.

Searching the OPAC (On-line Public Access Catalogue)
allows the user to access the items catalogued by any of
these eighty-four libraries. There is information about
opening hours and admissions policies, as well as access
to library guides, on the University Information System
at http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/libraries/ .

The on-line catalogue is designed so that it can be
used easily, but guidance in how to use it is also
provided via the on-line help screens. Explanatory
leaflets about basic searching procedures are available
in any OLIS library or from the Libraries Automation
Service (telephone: (2)78170). Library staff are able to
show readers how to use the on-line catalogue and give
advice on how to search the catalogue. Assistance with
problems is also provided by an On-line Catalogue Help
Desk (telephone: (2)77163), staffed by members of the
Bodleian Library Cataloguing Division. This is located in
the Lower Reading Room of the Bodleian Library.

ASHMOLEAN LIBRARY


Arrangements during the
construction of the Sackler Library, summer
1998–summer 2000

The Committee for the Ashmolean Library wishes to advise
members of the University that construction of the
Sackler Library on a site immediately west of the library
is now in progress, and completion is expected in the
late summer of 2000. The committee has been advised that
working conditions will vary according to the stage of
adjacent construction, but should be tolerable for the
majority of the time. It regrets the inconvenience to
readers from the inevitable disruption and noise, and is
taking all practicable steps to keep disruption to a
minimum.

The project involves the replacement of the Griffith
Institute, and the decanting of its holdings into
adjacent accommodation for the construction period. The
Ancient Near East holdings are now available to readers
in the basement of the Oriental Institute Library; the
Egyptological holdings are now accessible through No. 6
St Johnþs Street. All other sections of the Ashmolean's
collections will remain on the existing site. Access to
the Library remains via the Ashmolean Museum when the
museum is open (Tuesdayþ-Friday, 10 a.m.þ-5 p.m.;
Saturday, 10 a.m.-þ1 p.m.). At all other times access is
through the new entrance opposite the Cast Gallery, which
replaces the former Pusey Lane entrance.

Readers are advised that the demolition of the Griffith
Institute and Bridge, which is potentially the noisiest
part of the project, will occupy the first six weeks of
Michaelmas Term (12 Octoberþ21 November inclusive). All
reasonable measures to reduce the noise have been imposed
on the contractor, and so far as is practicable the
noisiest work will be programmed to take place before 2
p.m. each day. However there may be times when it becomes
necessary for health and safety reasons to close the
library at short notice.

A one-day total closure of the Library will be required
on Wednesday, 4 November, for a complete electrical shut-
down which will affect all surrounding buildings.

INSTITUTE OF ARCHAEOLOGY

The Institute of Archaeology will be closed on Wednesday,
4 November, due to a complete shutdown associated with
the provision of a new electrical sub-station to the
Ashmolean complex.

RESEARCH SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO) is based in
the University Offices, Wellington Square (with a satellite
office in the Medical School Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe
Hospital). The RSO is part of the finance division of the
University's central administration.

The office processes and approves all applications to outside
bodies for research grants and approves research-related
agreements on behalf of the University. It also acts in an
advisory capacity for those seeking outside funding or requiring
information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, ROPA, Teaching
Company Schemes, EU research programmes, etc.).

The RCSO produces a weekly bulletin on funding opportunities,
electronic Research and Industry News (eRIN), which is available
to members of the University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rcso/erin/.

Research contracts with industry are negotiated through the
RSO, which also deals, inter alia, with various
intellectual property matters, including other research-related
agreements covering clinical trials and services, services to
industry, confidentiality issues, material transfer and
consultancy. Contact details for members of the RSO, from whom
advice may be sought are as follows:

Dr Michael Halsey, Assistant Registrar---Senior Contracts
Officer (telephone: (2)70011, e-mail:
michael.halsey@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Dr Richard Liwicki, Assistant Registrar, John Radcliffe
Hospital satellite office (telephone: 553 22604, e-mail:
richard.liwicki@admin.ox.ac.uk;

Mr Pierre-Manuel Espinasse, Research Grants and European
Liaison Officer (telephone: (2)70043, e-mail:
pierre.espinasse@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Ms Fiona Anderson, Contracts Officer (telephone: (2)70142,
e-mail: fiona.anderson@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Ms Kathryn Dally, Administrative Officer---Information
(telephone: (2)80319, e-mail: kathryn.dally@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Enquiries relating to day-to-day processing of research grant
applications should be addressed to the RSO's Research Grants
Office, Room 330, the University Offices (telephone: (2)70146),
or, in the case of certain clinical departments, to the RSO
satellite office, the Medical School Offices, Level 3, John
Radcliffe Hospital, Headington (telephone: 553 22544).

General enquiries may be addressed, in the first instance, to
Mrs Jane Taylor (telephone: (2)70143), who will be pleased to
direct calls to the appropriate member of staff.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


Administrative procedures in respect of externally sponsored
research

Members of the University are reminded that it is a requirement
of the General Board that all applications for externally funded
support must be endorsed on behalf of the University through the
Research and Commercial Services Office before they are
dispatched to the sponsor, whether or not this is required by the
funding body. (This includes, for example, bodies such as the
Leverhulme Trust, and other charities and EU programmes which do
not specifically ask for administrative authorisation.)

The reason for the requirement is twofold: namely (i) to
ensure that the funds being requested are adequate for the
purpose and the costing rules of the funding body have been
applied correctly, and (ii) to ensure that the University would
be in a position to undertake the obligations arising from an
award and that these do not contravene University policy.

The detailed arrangements are as follows: applicants for
research grants should submit their applications, together with
a completed copy of the University's outside grant form (OG12),
to Room 330, Research and Commercial Services Office, University
Offices, Wellington Square, telephone (2)70146—leaving three
clear working days for them to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature
of contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 2,
provides that `no official of the University or any other person
employed by the University or working in or in connection with
any department of or under the control of the University shall
in connection with any invention, discovery, or patent, or ...
process, or manufacture have authority to make any
representations on behalf of the University or to enter into any
contract on behalf of the University or to be concerned in any
transaction whatsoever in connection therewith on behalf of the
University except with the express consent of Council'.

The relevant officials in the Research and Commercial
Services Office have been given authority to approve applications
for external funds in support of research and the terms of
contracts in straightforward cases under this provision: in more
complicated cases, specific authority is necessary.

Enquiries related to any aspect of externally sponsored
research should be directed to the Research and Commercial
Services Office, whose staff would be pleased to help.

ARTS AND HUMANITIES RESEARCH BOARD
(1999–2000)

The Arts and Humanities Research Board (AHRB) was established in
July 1998 and has announced the launch of a round of awards for
1999–2000.

Researchers in all areas of the arts and humanities are now
invited to apply for research grants and research leave awards,
to be taken up in the academic years 1998--9 and 1999--2000,
details of which are as follows:

(i) Research Grants

Grants of up to £100,000 a year, and for up to a period of
five years are available. Provision will be made within these
grants for the payment of institutional overheads, or indirect
costs.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


(ii) Small Research Grants in the Arts and Humanities

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to meet the direct
costs of research projects in the arts and humanities, to include
such items as travel, maintenance and consumables.

The AHRB's closing dates for receipt of applications under these
schemes are:

—30 November 1998 for applications where projects will incur
significant expenditure from April or May 1999.

—31 December 1998 for grants and awards to be taken up in
the financial year 1999-2000.

University applications to the above schemes must be submitted,
via the departmental administrator (or in the case of
non-departmentally organised faculties, via the appropriate
faculty board secretary), to the Research and Commercial Services
Office.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


(iii) Research leave

The AHRB will meet the full salary costs of successful applicants
to the research leave scheme for one term.

Applications to the research leave scheme should be submitted
through the college (for CUF and special non-CUF lecturers); or
through the University (for other university academic staff).
However, approval for all applications from academic staff
holding joint appointments must be obtained from both the faculty
board in question and the college before they are forwarded to
the AHRB.

The AHRB's closing date for receipt of applications under the
research leave scheme is 31 December 1998. Application forms and
further details about the schemes above are available from the
Research and Commercial Services Office, senior tutors (in the
case of the research leave scheme), or from the appropriate
faculty board secretaries. Alternatively, further information may
be found on the AHRB's web site at http://www.britac.ac.uk,
or by contacting the Chief Executive of the AHRB at: c/o 10
Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH (telephone: 0171-969
