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,
2000,
p. 213), which reads as follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XV, 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. XV, 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 obtained by taking a degree of the University.)

OLIS, THE UNIVERSITY'S LIBRARY SYSTEM

OLIS, the University's Library system, is an integrated library system which offers online
cataloguing, circulation,
acquisitions and periodicals registration. Ninety-eight 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.

OLIS is a union catalogue which contains cataloguing information (i.e. bibliographic
records) from 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. Access via the Internet is available world-wide. Copy
information (i.e.
shelfmark) which is specific to a particular library has been separated so that when searching
for a book, you will
first be shown the copy information for the items held in the library where you are
conducting your search.
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.
Further information about the holdings of the individual libraries contributing to OLIS may
be obtained from the
guides at http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/libraries, where information about opening hours and
admission policies can
be
found.

Retrospective conversion of card and other catalogues into machine readable form so that
they can be
interrogated online has been recognised by the University as a major priority. Following
completion of a
University
funded project to convert the Bodleian Guard Book catalogue (covering items published from
1920 onwards) and
the incorporation of the Bodleian pre-1920 catalogue (previously a separate database), the
OLIS catalogue currently
has around 7.5 million copies attached to nearly 5 million individual titles.

Printed catalogues in the Sackler, Politics, and Taylor Institution Libraries have largely
been converted onto
OLIS. The work of the Early Printed Books Project to produce machine readable records,
available on OLIS, is
continuing following a successful bid to the Research Support Libraries Programme. Details
of `Charting the
European Printed Heritage, 1641--1800', under which foreign language books of that period
will be catalogued,
can
be found at http://www.rslp.ac.uk/projects/ (see under: Research Collections in the
Humanities and Social Sciences
(RCHSS) Strand Projects—University of Oxford); and further details of the work of the
Early Printed Books
Project at http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/icc/. Middle Eastern material is being added as part of
another Research
Support
Libraries Programme project: see `Collaborative improvement in access for Middle Eastern
studies research
materials in Arabic and Persian' at the first Web address.

Two interfaces to OLIS, the character based OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue)
and GeoWeb, are
currently available through the OxLIP interface (Oxford Libraries Information Platform). The
OPAC may also be
accessed directly via telnet to library.ox.ac.uk, and GeoWeb at http://library.ox.ac.uk. The
online catalogue is
designed so that it can be used easily, but guidance on how to use it is also provided via the
online help screens.
Explanatory leaflets about basic and advanced searching procedures for both the
character-based OPAC and
GeoWeb are available in any OLIS library or from the Systems and Electronic Resources
Service (telephone:
(2)78170), and online versions of the guides may be found at http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/olis/.
Library staff are able
to show readers how to use the online catalogue and give advice on how to search the
catalogue.

An experimental service for generating reading lists is available on GeoWeb. Records
can be exported from
GeoWeb as an HTML snippet easily embeddable in a Web page. This snippet includes
hyperlinks to OLIS which
display full details of the book and the holding libraries. It is also possible to link OLIS with
bibliographic
packages
which support the ANSI Z39.50 (ISO23950) standard (e.g. EndNote). For more information,
see
http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/z3950/.

Online circulation (issuing, reservations, and fines) has been introduced into fifty-seven
OLIS libraries. This
allows readers registered in these libraries to find out what they have on loan and to place
reservations from any
terminal. It also enables any reader to check the availability of items in libraries using
automated circulation. If
an
item is on loan, the date due back will be displayed. 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. Online
acquisitions allows a reader to find out when a book has been ordered and received by one
of the forty-seven
libraries now using the Acquisitions module. Twenty-five libraries are now using the
periodicals registration
module.
This allows readers to find out when a specific issue of a journal has been received, claimed
or declared missing.

In an exciting new development readers now use OLIS to order books from the Radcliffe
Science Library
closed access stacks to reading rooms in that library. This can be done either from terminals
in the library or
remotely from other libraries, from offices, from home or from any place in the world which
has a connection
to
the Internet. Once placed, the progress of the orders can be seen on OLIS. Readers are also
spared the frustration
of ordering a book only to find that it has already been sent to a reading room since OLIS
alerts them to this
situation at the outset. The Automated Stack Request system will gradually be extended to
cover readers' orders
for closed access material anywhere in the Bodleian, its dependent libraries, the Nuneham
repository, and
eventually
to other OLIS libraries which fetch items from their bookstacks on request.

OPPENHEIMER FUND

The Oppenheimer Fund provides grants to assist the academic

the one hand and universities and similar institutions of higher
education in the Republic of South Africa on the other.
Applications are invited from senior members of the University
who wish either to visit one or more universities in South Africa
or to invite a staff member from a South African university to
Oxford. Grants may be awarded to assist with living expenses for
a maximum of six months, and travel costs. Visits for the sole
purpose of attending a conference will not normally be eligible
for support from the fund.

The maximum level of grants is likely to be up to £1,000 per
month for subsistence and up to £700 for the cost of travel
between Oxford and South Africa. Applications for grants from the
fund should include a statement of the purpose of the proposed
visit (including an outline of any research to be carried out
during the visit), duration and estimated costs, details of any
other available sources of funding, and, in the case of visits
to Oxford, a curriculum vitae of the staff member
it is proposed to invite and a letter of support from a senior
member at Oxford. The closing date for application in
consideration in Michaelmas Term is 19 November. It is expected
that there will be a second round of applications later in the
year. Applications should be sent to Mrs Katherine McGuire,
International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square,
Oxford OX1 2JD (telephone: Oxford (2)70134, e-mail:

Dr Chun-tu Hsueh Research and Travel
Awards

The Dr Chun-tu Hsueh Travel Awards have been established to
provide postgraduate students who are working on research degrees
in any aspect of North-east, South-east, and/or South Asian
Studies with grants towards the cost of their D.Phil. or M.Litt.
thesis research. The maximum award available is £500.

Only students from St Antony's College who have not
previously received one of these travel awards may apply.
Students whose thesis deals only tangentially with Asia are not
eligible for consideration. Students who are still in
probationary research status or still completing the requirements
of an M.Phil., M.St., M.Sc., or other taught-course degree at the
time of application should be as confident as possible of
securing upgrading to M.Litt. or D.Phil. status by the time of
the research travel or other research activity they propose.
Confirmation of upgrading will be required before any award is
actually paid. Awards cannot be deferred, but anyone not securing
the necessary upgrading or being otherwise unable to adhere to
the terms on which the award was originally made will have the
option to reapply in future.

Among the purposes for which grants may be given are: travel
essential to thesis research, the acquisition of material
essential to research, and the preparation of artwork or other
material for inclusion in the completed thesis. Grants for
subsistence will not be made; nor is funding available to present
papers at conferences, except when a very strong case can be made
for the relevance of such a presentation to the applicant's
thesis research. Candidates are expected to apply for grants
before incurring expenses.

Applications for awards are considered once a year, in Hilary
Term, for travel or other research activity to commence no later
than the beginning of Hilary Term the following year.
Applications must be made on a form available from the Secretary
of the Asian Studies Centre, St Antony's College, Oxford OX2 6JF
(e-mail: asian@sant.ox.ac.uk), and should be submitted by the end
of the second week of Hilary Term.

Applicants are asked to name one referee, normally the thesis
supervisor, who should be requested to send in a reference
directly to the Secretary of the Asian Studies Centre, St
Antony's College, by the deadline.

A subcommittee of the Asian Studies Centre will consider the
applications. It reserves the right to make no awards, in the
event that no suitable applications are received. Successful
candidates will be required to submit a brief report to the Asian
Studies Centre on their use of the grants received, and notify
the Centre upon completion of their degrees.

Wai Seng Senior Research Scholarship

St Antony's College proposes to elect a Wai Seng Senior Research
Scholar in Asia–Pacific Studies with effect from Michaelmas
Term 2002. It is tenable at St Antony's College for two years and
is open to all matriculated students of Oxford University working
for a Doctor of Philosophy degree involving the study of the
Asia--Pacific. Preference will be given to candidates whose
research interests are focused on China, Hong Kong, or Taiwan or
on comparative Asian studies involving one of these territories.

The scholarship will cover approved university and college
fees and will provide an annual maintenance of £7,500. If
the successful candidate is not a member of the college s/he will
be expected to move to St Antony's upon election to the
scholarship.
Applications (five copies, or one if you are doing field work
overseas) should comprise: a letter including a statement, no
more than two pages in length, describing the research the
applicant proposes to carry out if elected to the scholarship;
a curriculum vitae; an example of written work,
which should normally be a draft chapter of the applicant's
D.Phil. thesis and not more than 8,000 words (if you prefer to
submit an alternative sample please state the reasons).

Candidates should ask three referees, one of whom would
normally be your university supervisor, to provide, in
confidence, comments on their academic progress, the value of the
intended project, and other appropriate information to support
the application. Election, by a committee of the Asian Studies
Centre, will be made in Trinity Term.

Applications (and references) should be submitted to the
Director of Asian Studies Centre, St Antony's College, Oxford OX2
6JF, not later than Friday of the seventh week in Hilary Term.
There is no application form.

Each Wai Seng Senior Scholar will be expected to pursue his
or her studies under supervision, as the Management Committee of
the Asian Studies Centre may determine, and may be required to
submit a satisfactory report upon the work he or she has
accomplished, before receiving the final portion of the
emoluments of the scholarship. He or she will also be expected
to attend seminars and lectures organised by the Asian Studies
Centre.
