Closure of the libraries during Summer 1999

The Social Studies Libraries Committee wishes to advise members of
the University that a new Economics Library will be opened on 31
August in the ground floor of a building designed by Sir Norman
Foster and Partners. It will be located off Manor Road next to the St
Cross Building.

Stock from the present Institute of Economics and Statistics Library
as well as the economics material from the Social Studies Faculty
Library will be transferred to the new building. Painting and
reclassification work in the Main Reading Room of the Social Studies
Faculty Library will necessitate its closure during July and August.
The Periodicals Reading Room will remain open. A book retrieval
service will be offered to library users from the Main Library.
Normal lending will be possible for all non-economics material during
July and August. The economics stock will be available only for
short-loan borrowing. The Social Studies Faculty Library will be
completely shut for four days, 25–30 August, reopening on 31
August. The Economics and Statistics Library will operate as usual
until 16 August. The Library will then be shut for two weeks,
reopening as the Economics Library in the new building on 31 August.

The Social Studies Libraries Committee apologises for any
inconvenience which this may cause. Anyone who has specific queries
or suggestions should contact the Librarian (telephone: (2)78709 or
(2)71071, e-mail: margaret.robb@socstud.ox.ac.uk).

An exhibition showing details of the new library can be viewed in the
Main Reading Room of the Economics and Statistics Library, St Cross
Building, Manor Road.

Hebdomadal Council has decided, in the light of advice about changes
in the Data Protection Act, that individual members of the University
should be consulted about their entries in both printed and on-line
versions of the University's telephone directory. Staff are now able
to request that certain personal information about themselves be
excluded from telephone directory information which is published both
inside and outside the University.

Personal information held in the directory database includes title,
initials, surname, college or department and, in some cases, job
title. All this information is listed in the printed directory, which
is circulated only within the University. The same details are
available in the University's on-line directory, excepting job
titles, which are omitted from this version. The new procedures for
assembling and publishing directory information are detailed below.
They are intended particularly to assist staff who are concerned that
the release of gender or job-specific information into the public
domain might put them at risk from sexual or politically motivated
harassment but they also aim to allow a balance to be struck between
protecting the interests of individual members of staff and releasing
information which assists the University to fulfil its functions.

1. Gender-Specific Titles: Members of staff may
require their personal titles to be omitted from their individual
telephone directory entry if they are concerned about the release of
gender-specific information. No further authority is needed for

2. Names and Job Titles:

(a) Information published within the
. Staff may ask for their names and/or job titles to
be omitted from directory information intended only for internal
University use. In such cases, their head of department must be
consulted. Consent to exclusion from the University's internal
printed and on-line telephone directories will be given only in
exceptional circumstances, and requests may be overruled by the head
of department if he or she determines that it is in the department's
interests to include such information.

(b) Information published outside the
. Staff may ask for their names to be omitted from
externally-available directory information if they feel that they
have good cause to do so. Any such requests must be discussed with
and approved by their head of department.

In either case 2 (a) or 2 (b), if they disagree
with the ruling of their head of department, members of staff have
the right to appeal.

Any staff who wish to exclude any information from their directory
entry should complete a form which will be available from the
Telecommunications Co-ordinator of their department or college
(usually the administrator or bursar), ask their head of department
to signify approval (if appropriate), and return it to their
Telecommunications Co-ordinator (not directly to the
Telecommunications Section) as quickly as possible, and certainly by
the end of June. It should be noted that deadlines for directory
production are tight and it may not be possible to incorporate
changes in this year's directories if requests are delayed.

Fieldwork/research in dangerous countries or
dangerous areas

The attention of university academic staff is drawn to the need for a
`risk assessment' to be undertaken if, in the course of their work,
they propose to travel to countries or areas where the
security/personal safety situation is uncertain. University academic
staff should contact the Safety Office (telephone: (2)70811) for
advice as to whether an assessment should be undertaken. Normal
procedures for applying for leave should of course also be followed,
as appropriate.

The University Surveyor is responsible for the external repair of all
university functional buildings and for the management of all
refurbishment and new building projects, however funded. The division
of responsibilities between the Surveyor and occupying departments
for repairs and maintenance is set out in the Buildings Committee's
Standing Orders (the `Grey Book'). All buildings have a nominated
Building Surveyor who is the first point of contact for advice on
building matters. Requests for repair should be routed through
departmental administrators to the Surveyor's Office by telephone,
messenger, fax, or e-mail. Pending the establishment of a `help desk'
as a single point of contact, requests should be addressed to:

Minor repairs: Russell Jenkins (telephone: (2)78787, e-
mail: russell.jenkins@survey.ox.ac.uk).

General queries: R.&M. Office (telephone: (2)78754);
reception: (2)78750; fax: (2)78792.

For out-of-hours assistance in emergencies, the Security Services
Control Room (telephone: (2)72944) will forward calls.

To comply with legislation and the requirements of the University's
insurers, all building works must be approved in advance by the
University Surveyor who may authorise departments which have the
necessary expertise to undertake some of the work using their own
staff. All requests for works other than repairs and maintenance
should be made in writing to the Deputy Surveyor (Architects) at the
University Surveyor's Office (fax: (2)78753).

The Surveyor also hold records showing the use and allocation of
buildings and rooms. Departmental administrators wishing to check
these records should contact Linda Jackman (telephone: (2)78756).
