NEUROSCIENCE

A new award from the J.S. McDonnell Foundation, based in the United States
of America, will continue to fund the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience at the
University from May 1998 for a further five years, ending April 2003. The
centre links work on many aspects of brain research relevant to human
cognition in several departments at Oxford and other institutions.

The McDonnell-Pew Centre encourages work in all areas of cognitive
neuroscience across all relevant disciplines and embraces research on
experimental, theoretical, and clinical studies of perceptual analysis, memory,
language, and motor control, including philosophical approaches to cognition.
Current and fuller information on the centre is available on the Web at
http://www.physiol.ox.ac.uk/mcdp.

—One-year graduate studentships;

—Visiting fellowships, to contribute to the costs of short-term
visits from distinguished researchers from overseas;

—Seminar programme;

—Workshops, for the planning of collaborative research;

—Annual Autumn School in Cognitive Neuroscience, mainly for
graduate students and postdoctoral scientists;

—Annual Summer School in Connectionist Modelling;

—Network grants, to cover the costs of exchange visits for
collaboration with laboratories elsewhere in the world, especially in Europe and
North America;

—Research support fund, providing small grants for pilot
projects and experience in new techniques;

ASHMOLEAN LIBRARY


Revised arrangements for the opening of the
Sackler Library

The construction of the Sackler Library is not now expected to be
completed until September 2000, making it impossible to open the building
to readers, as intended, in time for Michaelmas Term 2000. Readers are
hereby notified that there will therefore be no unusual disruption during
the Long Vacation of 2000, as previously advertised, but that the
movement of the library stock into the new building will probably be
carried out in two phases in December 2000/January 2001 and March/April
2001.

This is likely to involve the closure of the Main Ashmolean Library and
Griffith Institute Library for most of the Christmas vacation (4 December
2000–13 January 2001) and of the Western Art and Eastern Art
libraries for part of the Easter vacation (15 March–19 April 2001).
Further details of these closures will be announced as they become
available.

During the remaining construction period it is expected that working
conditions in the library will remain tolerable, but there may be times when
it becomes necessary for health and safety reasons to close or partially
close the library at short notice. The Committee regrets any resulting
inconvenience to readers and is taking all practicable measures to minimise
disruption.

Further information is available from the Sackler Library Web site,
http://www.classics.ox.ac.uk/sackler.html.

COMMITTEE FOR THE ARCHIVES


Annual Report 1998–9

Committee

The Principal of Linacre (on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor
(Chairman)

The Senior Proctor

The Registrar

Dr G.E. Aylmer

Dr J.M. Roberts

Professor R. Fox

Mrs M. Clapinson (representing Bodley's Librarian)

Ms R.C. Dunhill, County Archivist of Hampshire

Dr R.J. Palmer, Librarian, Lambeth Palace


Staff

D.G. Vaisey: Keeper of the University Archives

S. Bailey: University Archivist

Ms P.G.A. Smith: Archives Assistant (until September 1999)

Ms F. Midgley: Archives Assistant (from September 1999)

Ms Smith, who held the fixed-term one-year appointment as archives
assistant during 1998–9, is now studying for the MA in Archives and
Records Management at University College, London. Ms Midgley graduated in
History and Archaeology at the University of York in 1998 and has since
completed an MA in Medieval Studies.


Accounts

The Archives income for the year 1998–9 was £67,583, and its
expenditure was £76,507. The deficit over the year of £8,924 was a
planned one, continuing the committee's policy of undertaking a major
conservation and preservation programme, using balances accumulated for
that purpose over several years. Expenditure under this head amounted to
£15,633. The committee plans to continue to use available funds for this
programme until September 2001.


Enquiries

During the year 914 enquiries have been dealt with, 676 of which were from
the general public. This represents an increase of 7 per cent over the
numbers for 1997–8, again reflecting an increased use of e-mail and
the Archives Web site. Many enquiries have been generated by work on the
New Dictionary of National Biography, but a wide range of other subjects of
research has included: childhood and children in rural Oxfordshire,
1891–1939; seventeenth-century scholars' funeral monuments; the early
history of the Stationers' Company; school examinations for girls,
1860–1902; a prosopography of British Communists; and the response of
the British authorities to the presence of Indians in Britain in the later
nineteenth century.


Accessions

A total of seventy-two accessions from departments and the central
administration have been made during the year, some of them very large,
including the records from 1915 to 1995 of the Department of Educational
Studies, which continue the records from 1892 received in 1984. Four
hundred and forty-nine further Registry files were received, along with
some 200 files from the Director of the Development Office relating to the
planning and progress of the Campaign for Oxford. Two unusual accessions
were, first, from the Examination Schools 199 printed texts, dating from
1820 to 1933, apparently used in viva voce examinations; and, second, from
Mr Philip Berry, a collection of photographs and papers generated during
his service in the University Police during the time of student unrest
between 1968 and 1974.


Cataloguing

The catalogue of the extensive archive of the Department of Educational
Studies was completed, as were those of the smaller archives of the former
Institute of Commonwealth Studies and the Department of Geology and
Mineralogy. Many new additions to existing collections were incorporated
into their respective catalogues. Work on the indexing of the Chancellor's
Court records, now almost complete, was delayed during the year by the
indisposition of Mr Walter Mitchell.


Preservation

Ms Jane Eagan, the conservator working part-time for the Archives under
the Oxford Colleges Conservation Consortium, has continued repair on the
loose papers of the Chancellor's Court from the 1620s, and has completed
the cleaning and rehousing of loose documents from two of the presses in
the Lower Archives Room. A further 100 phase boxes for volumes have been
supplied by the Bodleian Library. Ms Sabina Pugh of the Bodleian Library
has begun work on the conservation of the `Great Charter' of 1636, for
which the Hulme University Fund made a grant to the Archives of
£2,300.


Premises

Work continues to reduce the level of relative humidity in the rooms at the
Examination Schools. Remedial work on the stone mullions in two of the
windows of the Lower Archive Room is now included in the Surveyor's
programme of works in 2000 and 2001.

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 RSO 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 RSO produces a weekly bulletin on funding opportunities,
electronic Research Funding News (eRFN), which is
available to members of the University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erin/. Research-related information other than
that regarding funding opportunities is communicated via the RSO's electronic
Bulletin Board, which is updated on an ad hoc basis. This is also
available to members of the University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/bboard.htm.

Research contracts with industry are negotiated through the RSO, which
deals with research-related agreements covering the sponsorship of research,
clinical trials, services to industry, confidentiality issues, material transfer,
and consultancy. Contact details for members of the RSO are as follows:

Ms Catherine Quinn, Director (telephone: (2)70158, e-mail:
catherine.quinn@admin. ox.ac.uk);

Dr Richard Liwicki, Head of Research Contracts Administration (telephone:

Submitting research grant applications to external sponsors

Members of the University are reminded that all applications for external
research funding support must be endorsed on behalf of the University
through the RSO before they are despatched to the sponsor, whether or not
this is required by the funding body.

The reasons for the requirement are (i) to ensure that the funds being
requested are adequate for the purpose and that the costing rules of the
sponsor have been applied correctly, and (ii) to ensure that the University
could 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 the original plus one copy of their application, together with
a completed copy of the University's outside grants form, to the Research
Services Office, Wellington Square (telephone (2)70146), leaving three clear
working days for it to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature of contracts
it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3, 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 be concerned in any transaction whatsoever in connection
therewith on behalf of the University except with the express consent of
Council'.

The Research Services Office has been given authority to approve
research funding applications to external sponsors 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 Services Office, whose staff would be pleased to
help.

E.K. CHAMBERS STUDENTSHIP IN ENGLISH
LITERATURE 2000

Applications are invited for the E.K. Chambers Studentship in English
Literature, tenable at Oxford, at either Corpus Christi College or Somerville
College, from October 2000, from those who wish either to undertake graduate
studies in English Literature or to read English as a second honour school.
Candidates must have read Latin or Greek (or both) at university and be
competent in both. They must have graduated by October 2000 from a
university in the British Isles with an honours degree in a subject other than
`single honours' English. The studentship is normally comparable in value to
a British Academy award.

Further particulars and application forms are available from Mrs J. Thompson,
Assistant to the Secretary to the Board of Management of the Chambers
Bequest, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD

(telephone:
Oxford (2)70202), to whom completed applications, accompanied by two pieces
of written work on literary topics of not more than 2,000 words each, should
be sent by Monday, 10 January.

Violet Vaughan Morgan Commonwealth Studentship
2000

Applications are invited for a Violet Vaughan Morgan Commonwealth
Studentship. The studentship for the year 2000 is to be awarded to a
graduate and citizen of India who is reading for a higher decree under the
Board of the Faculty of English Language and Literature.

The studentship is an award open, by rotation, to citizens of Commonwealth
countries including the UK, now reading for the degree of M.St. or M.Phil.,
who propose to apply to read for the degree of D.Phil., or who are already
reading for the degree of D.Phil. The offer of the studentship will be
conditional upon the successful candidate being registered for a doctorate.

The studentship is tenable for one year from October 2000 and will be
renewable for not more than two further years at the discretion of the
English Board. The studentship will provide a stipend equivalent to that
provided by a British Academy studentship, plus approved university and
college fees (the former at the level for home students), but the English Board
may reduce the value of the studentship if in its opinion the financial
resources of the successful candidate make it desirable to do so. The
studentship will normally cover university fees at the home rate, although in
exceptional circumstances a supplemental grant may be made in order to meet
(or to go some way towards meeting) the difference between the home and
overseas fee.

Application forms for the Violet Vaughan Morgan Commonwealth Studentship are
available from Mrs J. Thompson, Assistant to the Secretary to the English
Board, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, and must be
returned by 31 January. Applications should include: (i) a curriculum
vitae
; (ii) a statement of the course of study to be pursued (including
a research proposal); (iii) the names and addresses of two referees each of
whom the applicant has asked to write to the Secretary to the English Board
by the date mentioned above; (iv) details of financial resources available to
the applicant during his or her proposed course of study.

Note: application forms for ORS awards can be obtained from
colleges or the International Office, Wellington Square, and must be returned
by 30 April.

field of study is the history of the book in the British Isles before 1625. The
studentship will be tenable at St John's College.

Eligible candidates are citizens of the United Kingdom who are seeking
admission in October 2000 to study for a research degree of the University
under the Board of the Faculty of English Language and Literature. The
closing date for applications is 1 March.

Further information about the studentship, and the form for application as a
graduate student of the University, may be obtained from Mrs Jennifer
Thompson, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (telephone:

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Hilary Term 2000

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
at the Schools in Hilary Term 2000 could inform the Clerk of the
Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to know
whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred
persons is required; only the three large writing-schools will
accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the
end of the seventh week of Hilary Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection
equipment and 35-mm projectors are available. When these
facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be
notified in advance.
