UNIVERSITY TELEPHONE DIRECTORY
DATABASE


Consultation on publication of
personal information

As a result of changes in the Data Protection Act and
concern about the need to protect individuals from
possible sexual or political harassment, Hebdomadal
Council has agreed that all members of staff should be
consulted about the personal information about them which
is held in the telephone directory database.

This database is used not only as the basis of the
printed directory, which is available only within the
University, but basic details of names and telephone
numbers which are held in it are also made available
outside the University, on-line on the Internet (see
http://www.ox.ac.uk/contact/index.html).

The following letter is being circulated to all staff
whose names are in the directory database. Attached to it
is a form on which staff may request that personal
information be omitted. The completed forms should be
returned to the Telecommunications Coordinator for the
staff member's college or department (normally the bursar
or administrator). Null returns are not required. If
possible, staff should make their requests during June.
Because of the tight timescales for the preparation of
the printed directory, requests made later cannot be
guaranteed to be incorporated. However, the on-line
versions of the database may be corrected at any time. It
should be noted that for certain types of information to
be omitted, the head of department or Head of House must
be consulted and give authorisation.

Letter to all members of staff: Consultation on
Personal Telephone Directory Entries

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. You are now
able to request that certain personal information about
you 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.

A similar exercise will also be undertaken regarding e-
mail directory information but since this is held in a
separate database and includes students as well as staff,
the Computing Service will consult you separately about
this.

1 Gender-Specific Titles

You may require your personal title to be omitted from
your individual telephone directory entry if you are
concerned about the release of gender-specific
information. No further authority is needed for this.

2 Names and Job Titles

(a) Information published within the
University
. You may ask for your name and/or job
title to be omitted from directory information intended
only for internal University use. In such cases,
your head of department
(or faculty board
chairman/Head of House, as appropriate) 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 you are advised that your request may
be overruled by your 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
University
. You may ask for your name to be
omitted from externally-available directory information
if you feel that you have good cause to do so. Any such
request must be discussed with and approved by your head
of department.

In either case 2(a) or 2(b), if you
disagree with the ruling of your head of department, you
have the right to appeal.

If you wish to exclude any information from your
directory entry, please complete the form overleaf, ask
your head of department to signify approval if
appropriate and return it to the Telecommunications
Coordinator of your department or college (usually your
administrator or bursar) as quickly as possible, and
certainly by early June. You should note that deadlines
for directory production are tight and it may not be
possible to incorporate changes in this years'
directories if requests are delayed.

Wallace etc.. The Voyage of the Beagle. Natural
selection. Darwin's problems: time, inheritance, complex organs.

Inheritance. Weissman, Kammer, Lysenko and Vavilov, Mendel, De
Vries. Mitosis and speciation. Evidence of stasis. Gradualism
versus punctuated equilibria.

Evidence for gradualism; synthesis. Patterns of evolution:
convergence (homoeomorphy), divergence, parallel evolution, phyletic
evolution, size change (Cope's Rule).

Heterochrony, preadaptation, coevolution.

Extinction, pseudoextinction. Van Valen's Law. Background \vversus\
mass extinctions. The work of Sepkoski; periodicity of extinctions:

Return to List of Contents of this section


Geodynamics

Topics in geological fluid dynamics and studies of the earth's
interior, chosen from: gravity field and shape of the fluid Earth;
thermal structure of the Earth; postglacial uplift; gravity field and
viscous flow due to internal loads; the viscosity structure of the
Earth; mantle convection; the generation and transport of melt;
volcanic eruptions; continental deformation; sediment transport and
erosion.

Continental Tectonics

The tectonics of the continents at the present day and at earlier
stages in Earth history; basin evolution and tectonic development in
the Precambrian, the early-middle Phanerozoic and the Quaternary;
currently active compressional, transcurrent and extensional
deformation. Emphasis will be given to case studies providing
examples both of techniques of studying continental tectonics, and of
the processes active at various times through Earth history.

Geochemistry and Mineral Physics of Environmental Materials

Mineral-aqueous fluid interactions and their effects on the chemistry
of the Earth's hydrosphere and atmosphere. The geochemical pathways
of tracers such as CFC's (chlorofluorocarbons) and tritium, used
extensively in the study of toxic waste transport; the influence of
mineral growth and dissolution on the distribution of trace elements
and their transport properties, and the effects of mineral chemistry
and physics on global chemical cycles, including carbon and nitrogen.
The importance of surface chemistry and the kinetics of mineral
dissolution will be emphasized. Modern methods of computational
chemistry, isotope geochemistry and spectroscopy provide the
principal tools for the investigation.
