Decree (5): Revision of second- and third-year courses in the
Final Honour School of Natural Science (Geology and Earth Sciences)

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Physical
Sciences Board and with the concurrence of the General Board, is
consequent on a redistribution of the times at which papers are taken
in the three-year course in Geology. As a result, the Second Public
Examination in Geology will no longer be divided into Part A and Part
B; it will, however, constitute Part A of the Second Public
Examination for the four-year course in Earth Sciences.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and
Boards' below.

Text of Decree (5)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1999, p.

Senior Student may be admitted to either the final examination for

course in the term in which he or she has completed not fewer than
five terms of residence.

(c) In such cases as shall be approved by the
Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board a Senior Student may be
deemed to have satisfied the examiners in Part A of the examination
for the four-year course in Earth Sciences and may be admitted to
Part B of the examination in the term in which the student has
completed at least six terms of residence.'

2 This decree shall be effective from 1
October 2000.

Decree (6): Abolition of the Foundation
Certificate in Social and Political Science

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Committee on
Continuing Education and with the concurrence of the General Board,
provides for the abolition of the part-time Foundation Certificate in
Social and Political Science. This course has not been offered for
the past two years, pending consideration of alternative provision at
this level in this subject area. The Committee on Continuing
Education has now approved the introduction of a new level-1
part-time Certificate in Social and Political Science which it
considers will meet the needs of a wider range of potential mature
students, and the Foundation Certificate is accordingly abolished.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and
Boards' below.

Text of Decree (6)

In Examination Decrees, 1999, delete from p. 1010, l. 38

BODLEIAN LIBRARY


Delays to the reopening of the Upper Reading
Room

The University Surveyor's Office has advised the Library that, regrettably,
refurbishment works in the Bodleian's Upper Reading Room will over-run
by a week. This means that the Reading Room will not now open until
Monday, 16 October at the earliest. The delay has been caused by
difficulties in the supply of floor covering and by problems with the
painting of the shelving. At the time of writing the petrol crisis has not
yet had a significant effect on the programme but there is clearly some
risk that it will cause further delays.

Arrangements for the two-week period between the closure of the
temporary Upper Reserve in the PPE reading room and the opening of the
Upper Reading Room itself will now have to be extended to run for at least
three weeks.

During this time books held in the temporary Upper Reserve in PPE will
be transferred to reserves in the Radcliffe Camera, to the Lower Reading
Room or to PPE, as readers direct. The L ibrary hopes to avoid, but cannot
rule out, further limitation of the numbers of books allowed in each
reserve.

Open shelf material temporarily held in the stacks will now be unavailable
for three weeks rather than the two weeks required by the book move.

There will inevitably be increased pressure on reader spaces throughout
the Central Site reading rooms.

In addition, self-service photocopying will not now begin in the Old Library
until 16 October at the earliest. However, the new service will be launched
in the New Library and Radcliffe Camera on 9 October, as advertised. (See
further details below.)

The Library greatly regrets this forced delay and apologises for the
reductions in service that this must unfortunately cause.



Self-service photocopying in the Central
Bodleian Library and the OULS Photocopying Card

From 9 October, readers will be able to make their own photocopies in the
Central Bodleian. This is in response to readers' requests over many years.
The existing staff-mediated photocopying service will continue.

As there are preservation rules governing the library collections (in
particular as many of the books are deposited under copyright legislation,
to form part of the national archive), readers will only be able to copy one
page at a time, not `openings'. This method of photocopying is designed to
minimise stress on the structure of the books, and the same restriction will
apply to the staff-mediated service. Certain books will not be available for
self-service photocopying, but may be copied through the staff-mediated
service. Full details of the categories of material which cannot be copied
on self-service machines will be publicised.

Initially only three reading rooms will offer self-service photocopying. This
may be increased in line with demand. The self-service copiers will be in
the Lower Radcliffe Camera (S.T. Lee Reading Room), Old Library Upper
Reading Room, and New Library PPE Reading Room. (The opening of the Upper
Reading Room will be delayed by approximately one week due to late-running
renovation works.) There will be a
procedure for transferring appropriate books to the reading rooms with
copiers.

As a further improvement in service, the library will offer copies made on
an overhead book scanner. This will enable staff to make bitonal scans
(prints resembling photocopies) from books too fragile to be authorised for
photocopying. These copies will be available under the standard twenty-
four-hour turn-around time of the staff-mediated photocopying
service—much quicker than the present arrangement where paper
copies from microfilm have to be produced. Normally, `openings' will be
available.

Prices for the staff-mediated photocopies have been held at 10 pence per
page for more than twenty years. From 9 October, the price will be
increased to 13 pence per page. Copies made on the overhead book scanner
will be 57 pence per page or opening. tariff for postal copies will be
greatly simplified, which will reduce queues in reading rooms. Self-service
photocopying will be introduced at 9 pence per page.

Readers will be able to pay for all copies, self-service and staff-mediated,
using the new Oxford University Library Services Photocopy Card, which
has been introduced into several libraries during the summer. These
reusable cards can be bought from automatic dispensers or over the
counter, and can be used and recharged at any library participating in the
scheme. They are similar to plastic phonecards and carry a cash value that
is used up as photocopies are made, but can be recharged or topped-up
at coin-operated machines as needed. Initially, four libraries are taking
part in the scheme: the Radcliffe Science Library, the Bodleian Law
Library, the Taylor Institution Library, and the Modern Languages Faculty
Library. The Indian Institute Library and Rhodes House Library will join
the scheme along with the Central Bodleian in October, and more libraries
will adopt the card in due course.

Further information about the new service may be obtained from Ben
Bergonzi, Head of Imaging, Bodleian Library (telephone: (2)77241, e-mail:
bcb@bodley.ox.ac.uk).



Making the most of the Bodleian Library: a
guide to Central Bodleian facilities and services

Michaelmas Term 2000

Sessions designed to enable graduate students, academic staff, others of
a similar status, and readers without any institutional affiliations, to make
the most of the Bodleian Library, will be offered during October. Sessions
cover the use of the Central Bodleian Library, including use of the
catalogues and procedures for locating and obtaining material and a guide
to reference material. These sessions begin in the Lower Reading Room
General Reference and Enquiry Area in the Central Bodleian Library.

Each session will begin at 9.30 a.m. promptly and will last for about an
hour.

Twelve places are available on each of the following dates in October: 3, 5,
6, 10, 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, 24, and 27.

Readers who wish to attend one of these sessions are asked to book a
place by entering their name, college/department address, and University
Card number (as appropriate) on the list which is available at the Main
Enquiry Desk in the Lower Reading Room. Please give your name to the
staff at the Main Enquiry Desk when you attend.

`Making the most of the Bodleian Library' sessions continue throughout
most of the year on Tuesdays and Fridays at the same time. Exact dates
are given on the sign-up sheets.



Disruption in Central Bodleian Reading Rooms
during Induction Week

Readers are warned that there will be considerable disruption in certain
reading rooms in the Central Bodleian during Induction Week. Throughout
the three days Wednesday, 4 October, to Friday, 6 October, Library staff
will be engaged in taking groups of new undergraduates round different
parts of the Library and giving them introductory talks in reading
rooms.

Talks will be taking place in various locations, including the Lower Reading
Room and the Lower Camera. Similar talks will take place on a smaller scale
in other reading rooms during this week and the week following.

The Library is aware that these sessions will cause inconvenience to
readers, but believes that it is important to offer library induction to new
students during their first week here.



Research Libraries Group: Archival Resources

There is a new on-line gateway to archival collections,
maintained by the Research Libraries Group (RLG). This is
available through OXLIP, located under `archival
resources' in the alphabetical subject list, or via an
icon on the OXLIP introductory screen on the PCs in Duke
Humfrey's Library.

RLG's Archival Resources provides centralised access for
searching and retrieval of archival finding aids that
have been encoded using the SGML/XML based encoding
standard, Encoded Archival Description (EAD). On-line
searches can be undertaken across all the holdings
available through the gateway, and individual finding
aids can be downloaded and searched. It should be noted
that in many cases, electronic catalogues represent only
a fraction of an institution's holdings, but the
proportion will increase continually. The Bodleian
Library has an on-going programme of retrospective
conversion of catalogues of manuscripts, and these will
be available through the RLG gateway as well as through
the Bodleian's own Web site.

Archival Resources also includes access to RLG's AMC

(Archival and Mixed Collections) file. AMC provides
researchers with comprehensive access to brief,
collection-level information for nearly half a million
collections of manuscripts and archives.

A list of the libraries with archive collections
represented in the site can be found on the introductory
pages to Archival Resources. The majority of libraries on
the site are American, and include the Folger Shakespeare
Library, the Getty Research Institute, Harvard
University, the Huntington Library, the Library of
Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, New York Public
Library and Yale University. Other libraries on the site
include the Australian Science Archives Project, the
Bodleian Library, the British Library, the National
Archives of Australia, the National Archives of South
Africa, the National Gallery of Canada, the National
Library of Australia, the Public Record Office, the
University of Durham, the University of South Africa, the
University of Warwick, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.



Proposals for Visitor Programme

The Bodleian Library is currently in the process of raising funds for the
implementation of a visitor programme in and around the Old Schools
Quadrangle.

The visitor programme proposals, if implemented, are also intended to
improve arrangements for the separation of readers from tourist visitors,
whilst at the same time continuing to allow free access to the Quadrangle
and other rooms for local residents.

A display which describes the proposed changes to access arrangements is
being prepared and can be viewed in the Divinity School from 2 October
to 14 October inclusive.

All users of the Bodleian Library are encouraged to visit the display
during this time in order to comment on these access changes prior to the
completion of the visitor programme proposals.

Further information on the details of the visitor programme itself can be
obtained from the Secretary of the Library, Stephen Waterman.
