HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 19 January


1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into
effect on 6 February.

List of the decrees:


Decree (1): Consultation with
trade union representatives on health and safety matters

Explanatory note

Council has reviewed the effectiveness of the current
mechanisms for consultation with trade union
representatives on health and safety matters, under the
provisions of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Council has agreed, on the recommendation of a panel
which it set up to report in detail on this question
after full consultation with interested parties, to make
certain changes in these mechanisms, including an
increase from three to five in the number of members of
the Committee on Health and Safety serving on the Joint
Safety Advisory Committee in order to reassure the trade
union representatives that their views are being heard by
and discussed with a substantial proportion of the former
committee (which is, under Council, the executive body
for health and safety matters). In consequence, Council
has also agreed to increase from two to three the maximum
number of co-opted members of the Committee on Health and
Safety; it thinks that it would be helpful if the
additional co-optee were a person with experience of the
day-to-day management of health and safety, and if that
person were then to be one of the committee's appointees
to the joint committee. Clauses 1–4 of the following
decree provide accordingly.

Clauses 5 and 6 provide for two further changes in
procedure, whereby in future, in addition to the present
minimum six meetings of the joint committee each year,
there will be an annual meeting between the trade union
representatives and the whole of the Committee on Health
and Safety to consult on a small number of key areas of
overall university policy on health and safety; and all
members of the joint committee will be able to receive
the agenda, papers, and minutes of each meeting of the
Committee on Health and Safety except those dealing with
business which is not within the unions' remit (such as
personnel matters, general environmental questions, and
purely financial issues).

(provided that compliance with this requirement shall not
be invalidated by the inability or unwillingness of any
of the members of either committee to attend), at which
there shall be consultation on a number of key areas of
university policy on health and safety. The date and
agenda for each such meeting shall be decided by
agreement between the chairman of the Health and Safety
Committee, and the members under (6)–(11) in clause
1 above.'

follows and renumber existing cll. 4–6 as cll.

`4. The agenda, papers, and minutes of each meeting of
the Health and Safety Committee shall be made available
to all members of the Joint Safety Advisory Committee,
provided always that the documents thus made available
shall, at the absolute discretion of the chairman of the
Health and Safety Committee, exclude any document or any
part of a document which deals with business which in his
or her opinion is not of reasonable concern to the
members under (6)–(11) in clause 1 above (including
but not limited to business relating to the appointment,
promotion, or other matters concerning the personal
position of members of the staff of the University or
other individuals; business relating to environmental
matters which have no impact on members of the staff of
the University; and business relating to purely financial
matters).'

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the University, was
established in 1988. The company has been formed to exploit know-
how arising out of research funded by the UK Government through
the Research Councils and funded by other bodies where the rights
are not tied. The function of the company is to ensure that the
results of research bring rewards to Oxford, and to the
inventors, who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums andor
royalties for the use of know-how arising out of research.
Isis also exploits the intellectual property of the
University by setting up individual companies using venture
capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals who wish to
exploit the results of research supported by non-Research
Council sources, when there are no prior conditions on the
handling of the intellectual property rights. Isis
Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-seedcorn fund for
paying the costs of protecting intellectual property rights
and for taking work to a stage where its potential can be
assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new ideas can
be developed for market requirements. The company has
established the Oxford Innovation Society for major
industrial companies, so that they can have a window on
Oxford technology and an opportunity to license and invest
where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is available. Please
contact the above address, or the telephone and fax numbers given
below.

Members of the University should contact the Managing
Director if they wish to take advantage of the services that
Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)72411; fax: (2)72412.)

OLIS, OXFORD UNIVERSITY'S LIBRARY
SYSTEM

OLIS, Oxford University's Library system, is an integrated library
system which offers online cataloguing, circulation, acquisitions
and periodicals registration. Seventy-seven 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 all of the 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. 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. If there
are copies in other libraries, for which there is information
in the OLIS catalogue, you will be given the chance to see the
information about them. It will still be necessary to check other
catalogues in the libraries concerned to find information about
holdings not yet catalogued on OLIS. In common with most
other academic libraries in the UK, the catalogue can be searched
from any terminal capable of connected to the University's network.


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. The OLIS catalogue
currently has over 4.1 million copies attached to 2.9 million
individual titles. The Bodleian Library's Pre-1920 catalogue
comprising
1.2 million titles has been available on CD-ROM since January
1994.


The University is funding the conversion of records in the Bodleian
Guard book catalogues, and in the card catalogues of Bodleian
dependent libraries. This project, using services provided by
OCLC, will be completed this academic year. A similar project
to convert the remaining printed catalogues in the Taylorian has
just commenced. A project to produce machine readable records
for early printed books from the Inter-Collegiate Catalogue, funded
by HEFCE are available on OLIS. Details of the project are available
at http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/icc/.


Online circulation (issuing, reservations, and fines) has been
introduced into 29 OLIS libraries. This allows readers
registered in these libraries to find out what they have on loan
and to place reservations from any terminal. Online acquisitions
allows a reader to find out when a book has been ordered and received
by one of the 34 libraries now using the Acquisitions module.
Ten libraries are now using the periodicals registration module.
This allows readers to find out when a specific issue of a journal
has been received or declared missing.



Searching the OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue) allows you
to access the items catalogued by any of these 77 libraries. There
is information about opening hours, admissions policies as well
as access to library guides on the University Information System
at http://www.lib.ox.ac.uk/libraries/


The online catalogue is designed so that it can be used easily,
but guidance in how to use it is also provided via the online
help screens. Explanatory leaflets about basic searching procedures
are available in any OLIS library or from the Libraries Automation
Service (2-78170). Library staff are able to show readers how

Grants and Research Funding


Contents of this section:

[Note. An asterisk denotes a reference to a previously
published or recurrent entry.]

Return to Contents Page of this issue



RESEARCH AND COMMERCIAL SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research and Commercial Services Office
(RCSO) is based in the University Offices, Wellington Square
(with a satellite room at Room 9, Manor House, John Radcliffe
Hospital). The RCSO is part of the University's central
administration.

The office 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 RCSO produces a weekly bulletin on funding opportunities,
electronic Research and Industry News
(eRIN), which is available to members of the
University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rcso/erin/current.

Research contracts with industry are negotiated through the
RCSO, which also deals, inter alia, with
various intellectual property matters, research-related work
covered by purchase orders, consultancy agreements, agreements
covering clinical trials and services, and services to industry.

The Manager of the RCSO is Dr Roger Pritchett (telephone:
(2)80499, e-mail: roger.pritchett@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Other members of the RCSO from whom advice may be sought are
as follows:

Enquiries relating to day-to-day processing of research grant
applications should be addressed to the RCSO's Research Grants
Office, Room 330, the University Offices (telephone: (2)70146),
or, in the case of certain clinical departments, to the RCSO
satellite office, Room 9, Manor House, John Radcliffe Hospital
(telephone: 553 22544).

General enquiries may be addressed, in the first instance, to
the Director's Personal Assistant, Mrs Jane Taylor (telephone:
(2)70143), who will be pleased to direct calls to the appropriate
member of staff.


Administrative procedures in respect of externally sponsored
research

Members of the University are reminded that it is a requirement
of the General Board that all applications for externally funded
support must be endorsed on behalf of the University through the
Research and Commercial Services Office before they are
dispatched to the sponsor, whether or not this is required by the
funding body. (This includes, for example, bodies such as the
Leverhulme Trust, and other charities and EU programmes which do
not specifically ask for administrative authorisation.)

The reason for the requirement is twofold: namely (i) to
ensure that the funds being requested are adequate for the
purpose and the costing rules of the funding body have been
applied correctly, and (ii) to ensure that the University would
be in a position to 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 their applications, together with
a completed copy of the University's outside grant form (OG12),
to Room 330, Research and Commercial Services Office, University
Offices, Wellington Square, telephone (2)70146—leaving three
clear working days for them to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature
of contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 2,
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 enter into any
contract 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 relevant officials in the Research and Commercial
Services Office have been given authority to approve applications
for external funds in support of research 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 and Commercial
Services Office, whose staff would be pleased to help.

Square (telephone: Oxford (2)70134). Applications must be
returned to the International Office by 8 May.

ST ANTONY'S COLLEGE


Dr Chun-tu Hseuh Travel Grant

The Chun-tu Hseuh Travel Grant has 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 thesis research. Students from
any college within the University may apply.

The maximum grant available is £300, and no student who has
been awarded a grant from the Cha Fund for any amount of will be
eligible for a grant from the Chun-tu Hseuh fund. Nor are
students with probationary status, students for the M.Phil.
degree, or students whose thesis deals only tangentially with
Asia eligible for consideration.

Among the purposes for which the grants may be given are: travel
essential to thesis research, travel to a conference to present
a paper related to the thesis, 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 grants are considered once a year. Applications
should 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 and announce its decisions by the middle of the
sixth week of Hilary Term. 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 to notify the centre upon completion of their degrees.
