    ENGLISH POEM ON A SACRED SUBJECT 2001

    The subject for 2001 is:

    `The people of the book'.

    The poem must consist of not less than sixty or more than 300 lines. It
    may be blank verse or in any form of verse rhymed in couplets or stanzas.
    There is a tradition which discourages dramatic form of composition for this
    prize.

    Candidates for the prize (value of about £2,700) must either have
    qualified by
    examination for a degree of the University or hold the Degree of Master of
    Arts by Incorporation or by decree or special resolution or hold the status
    of Master of Arts at the time the subject was announced (25 June 1999).
    Consideration is being given, however, to extending the eligibility for these
    prizes to include postgraduate members of the University who have obtained
    their undergraduate degrees at universities other than Oxford or Cambridge.
    Consideration is also being given to changing the time at which eligibility is
    determined, from the time when the subject is announced to that of the
    closing date for entries. The judges may, at their discretion, also make an
    award to the proxime accessit. Should no such award be made the value of the
    main award will be increased.

    Poems (three copies) are to be sent under a sealed cover to the Head Clerk,
    University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, on or before 1 July
    2001. Each author is required to conceal his or her name and to distinguish
    his or her composition by a motto, sending at the same time his or her name,
    college, and address in a separate envelope with the same motto inscribed
    upon it.

    The prize may not be awarded more than twice to the same person.

    BODLEIAN LIBRARY


    Old Library—open 28 June to 17 July

    The first stage of the Bodleian Old Library Development project is nearing
    completion, and Duke Humfrey's Library will reopen on Monday, 19 July.

    As the contractors' work on the project has proceeded, it has become
    clear that it will no longer be necessary to close the whole of the Old Library
    building from Sunday, 27 June, to Sunday, 18 July. The Library is therefore
    pleased to announce that the Upper and Lower Reading Rooms will be open as
    usual during that period (9 a.m.–7 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 9
    a.m.–1 p.m. on Saturday). There will, however, be some disruption to
    normal service in the Upper Reading Room as all books will be returned to
    Duke Humfrey through its north range.

    Western manuscripts and pre-1640 books normally read in Duke Humfrey
    will not be available during these three weeks. The service to readers of
    these materials, which has been provided in the Upper Reading Room and the
    Bullard Room since last September, will come to an end at 1 p.m. on Saturday,
    26 June.


    August Bank Holiday arrangements

    Plans to open the central Bodleian reading rooms during the traditional August
    closed week will go ahead. The central buildings will be open from Tuesday,
    31 August, to Saturday, 4 September, inclusive, and closed for the Bank
    Holiday weekend on Saturday, 28 August, Sunday, 29 August, and Monday, 30
    August.
