    CIRCULATION OF FLYSHEETS

    Ten or more members of Congregation may arrange to have a
    flysheet circulated with the Gazette (a)
    on matters before Congregation, or Convocation in regard to the
    election of the Professor of Poetry, or (b) relating to
    matters of general interest to the University, subject to the
    following general conditions:

    (i) no flysheet will be circulated which in the opinion of
    the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors might be defamatory or otherwise
    illegal;

    (ii) the right is reserved on behalf of the University and
    its employees, without prior consultation with the signatories,
    to publish an apology in respect of any statement in a flysheet
    which is complained of as defamatory or otherwise illegal
    (whether or not the statement can be shown to be true);

    (iii) the signatories shall jointly and severally indemnify
    the University and its employees against any costs or damages
    payable in respect of their flysheet and, unless a Queen's
    Counsel (to be mutually agreed on by the signatories and the
    University) shall advise within four months of the making of any
    claim in respect of a flysheet that any proceedings could be
    contested with the probability of success, such damages shall
    include any sum paid by the University in settlement of any claim
    arising out of the flysheet;

    (iv) the flysheet shall consist of one leaf only (though
    text may appear on both sides of the leaf); the text shall
    include the name and college or department of each of the
    signatories;

    (v) a copy of the text of the flysheet shall be delivered
    to the Registrar before 10 a.m. on the Monday of the week in
    which circulation is desired; it shall be accompanied by an
    indemnity in accordance with condition (iii) above drawn up on
    a form obtainable from the Registrar and signed by each of the
    signatories of the flysheet; the Registrar shall be informed at
    the same time which of the signatories is to be notified whether
    the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors have authorised circulation;

    (vi) the Registrar shall arrange for the production by the
    University Press of copies of a flysheet the circulation of which
    has been duly authorised.

    Though every effort will be made to circulate on the day
    desired flysheets so received, it must be understood that this
    cannot be guaranteed.

    (a) Matters before Congregation or Convocation

    If the flysheet deals with a matter that is a formal agendum for
    Congregation, or for Convocation in regard to the election of the
    Professor of Poetry, or the subject of a report published in the
    Gazette, the production costs will be met from
    university funds.

    (b) Matters of general interest to the University

    If the flysheet deals with a matter that is not a formal agendum
    for Congregation or the subject of a report published in the
    Gazette, the Vice-Chancellor will decide whether it
    is of sufficient general interest to warrant circulation with the
    Gazette; the production costs for such a flysheet
    will be the responsibility of the signatories.

    Oxford University Student Union

    The Executive and the Graduate Committee of the Oxford University
    Student Union may have flysheets circulated with the
    Gazette under the arrangements and subject to the
    conditions set out above, provided that:

    (1) the number of names to be included on the flysheet
    under condition (iv) shall be not less than a majority of the
    total number of members of the Executive or the Graduate
    Committee of OUSU, as the case may be, and each of the persons
    named shall sign the indemnity required under condition (v);

    (2) the maximum number of flysheets to be circulated as of
    right, whether on matters before Congregation (to be paid for by
    the University) or on matters of general interest to the
    University (to be paid for by OUSU and to be subject to the Vice-
    Chancellor's decision as prescribed under (b) above)
    shall be three per term for each of these bodies, save that the
    Vice-Chancellor shall have discretion to permit further
    flysheets.

    Subject to proviso (1) above, the Executive and the Graduate
    Committee of OUSU may also support flysheets signed by not less
    than ten members of Congregation.

    Keeper of the University Archives: D.G. Vaisey

    University Archivist: S. Bailey

    Archives Assistants: Mrs S. Wickham (until September 1997); Ms
    E. Adams (from September 1997)

    The archives assistant post is a fixed-term one-year appointment
    for someone who intends to apply at the end of the year for a
    place on an archives administration course. Mrs Wickham, whose
    contribution to the work of the Archives during the year was
    outstanding, is now studying for the MA in Archives and Records
    management at University College, London. Ms Adams, who graduated
    in History this year from the University of Leeds, was selected
    from forty-four candidates to replace her.

    Accounts

    The archives' income for the year 1996--7 was £64,439 and
    its expenditure was £68,311. The deficit of £3,872 was
    a planned one. Over the past few years a credit balance has been
    accumulated to enable a major conservation and preservation
    programme to be undertaken through the Oxford Colleges
    Conservation Consortium. This programme was begun during the year
    resulting in an expenditure under this head of £11,888. It
    is envisaged that expenditure at this level will continue at
    least until the end of the year 1998--9.

    section


    Enquiries

    During the year 567 enquiries have been dealt with, 419 of which
    were from the general public. This is a considerable increase on
    last year's figures, largely due to the greater use of e-mail and
    to the existence of the Archives Web site. Six hundred and
    twenty-one items have been produced for consultation in Duke
    Humfrey's Library by readers, on subjects ranging from
    disputations in the sixteenth century to the `dissolution' of
    Balliol college in 1644; from John Aubrey to the development of
    British university observatories; from the nineteenth-century
    restoration of St Mary's Church to women's medical education
    prior to 1939; and from the teaching of history in English
    universities 1870--1930 to Lord Nuffield's plan for a College of
    Engineering at Oxford. Groups of graduate students and summer
    school students were shown the Archives; and the Keeper and the
    Archivist hosted a visit from their opposite numbers at
    Cambridge.

    Accessions

    A total of fifty-eight accessions from departments have been made
    during the year. These have been mainly of a routine nature but
    have ranged in size from a single item to a long run of 250 files
    from the University Registry, 1920--70. Revisions and additions
    were made to the official register of colours and materials of
    gowns and hoods by Mr M.R. Venables of Shepherd and Woodward.

    Cataloguing

    Catalogues have been completed of records of the Proctor's
    Office, the Department of Human Anatomy, and the School of
    Geography, and of additions to the archives of various faculties
    and sub-faculties, delegacies, and committees. Mr Walter Mitchell
    has begun the final phase of the compilation of his definitive
    list and index of the long run covering many centuries of the
    papers of the Chancellor's Court.

    Preservation

    The Archives joined the Oxford Colleges Conservation Consortium
    in October 1996 and since January 1997 Ms Jane Eagan has been
    devoting two days a week to the work of the department. Roughly
    one-third of the contents of the Lower Archive Room have been
    cleaned, repaired, and repackaged and work has begun on the loose
    papers among the records of the Chancellor's Court. A further 200
    phase boxes, giving protection to individual bound volumes, have
    been purchased from the Bodleian's Division of Preservation and
    Conservation. Since this programme began in 1990 some 1,500
    volumes have been protected in this way.

    Premises

    Heavy rains in the summer caused some water leakage into the
    recently refurbished addition to the Archives accommodation in
    the Examination Schools. No records were damaged though some
    storage boxes were affected and had to be replaced.

    Wolfson College


    Non-stipendiary Junior Research
    Fellowships 1998

    Wolfson College proposes to elect up to twelve non-stipendiary
    Junior Research Fellows, if candidates of sufficient merit
    present themselves, without limitation of subject, for two years
    in the first instance from 1 October 1998. A fellowship is
    renewable for a further term of two years subject to satisfactory
    progress in research, and normally submission of a doctoral (or
    equivalent) thesis by those not holding a doctorate at time of
    election. These fellowships carry common table rights (up to
    £30 a week for meals in hall) and are open to both men and
    women.

    Applications from candidates over the age of thirty on
    1 October 1998 (thirty-two for clinically
    qualified applicants) are discouraged and consideration will only
    be given to older candidates where an unavoidable interruption
    of academic studies has occurred or their first course was
    extended. Preference will be given to candidates who have not
    already held a Junior Research
    Fellowship at another college. In non-clinical sciences,
    preference will be given to those holding a doctorate or who
    expect to hold one by October 1998. Arts candidates should have
    had at least two years' postgraduate experience by 1 October
    1998.

    Applications, typed or clearly printed, including a
    curriculum vitae, a completed application form (see
    below), and the names of three referees, should be sent to the
    President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD
    (telephone: Oxford (2)74102, fax: (2)74136, e-mail: sue.
    hales@wolfson.ox.ac.uk), by 23 March. Candidates should also
    include samples of their written work, details of the work they
    will be doing in Oxford, and their means of support. Candidates
    should themselves write directly to their referees asking them
    without further request to send a confidential reference (see
    below) to the President's Secretary by the closing date (Monday,
    23 March).

    Junior Research Fellows are not ipso facto members of the
    governing body of the college; but they are eligible to sit on
    nearly all college committees, and may be elected as
    representative members of the governing body.

    For an application form (light green), send a self-addressed
    envelope to the President's Secretary. For all UK addresses
    outside the Oxford University Messenger area, applicants should
    affix appropriate postage stamps.

    Applications and references should be marked on the envelope
    `Ref. N-S'. References may be faxed directly to
    the President's Secretary, to whom all enquiries should be
    directed.

    The timetable is as follows: closing date, Monday, 23 March
    (typed or clearly printed applications to reach the Presiden't
    Secretary); short-listed candidates to be notified in the week
    Monday, 27 April–Friday, 1 May; interviews on Wednesday, 6
    May (an alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

    Applications should include the following: an application form
    (see below); a brief summary of work to be done during the tenure
    of the fellowship; samples of work (for visual arts this may be
    in the form of slides/photographs, etc.; candidates are
    responsible for making suitable arrangements for the return of
    their work after the interview date); a curriculum
    vitae
    ; the names of three referees (candidates should

    Charter Fellowships 1998–9
    (Humanities and Social Sciences)

    These fellowships are designed to enable men and women working
    elsewhere to spend a period of research in Oxford. The college
    proposes to make elections to two Charter Fellowships, to take
    effect from 1 October 1998 (or an earlier or later date at the
    college's discretion). Both fellowships will be offered in the
    Humanities and Social Sciences.

    Fellows will be required to reside in Oxford during the tenure
    of the fellowship and to carry out research in
    the University in one of the above fields. In selecting the
    fellows, preference will be given to men or women holding a
    university lecturership (or comparable position) in the United
    Kingdom or elsewhere, but consideration will be given to any
    qualified candidate for whom a period
    of research in Oxford would be valuable. Students are not
    eligible.

    The college will make available up to £1,200 towards the
    expenses of each fellow. The sum available will be used towards
    expenses reasonably incurred in pursuance of the aims of the
    fellowship (including accommodation). It is not possible to pay
    travel expenses. The fellow will be a full member of the college,
    with the right to use all the college facilities. In addition the
    fellowship carries with it common table rights, i.e. an allowance
    of up to the sum of £30 a week for meals taken in hall. The
    college may be able to provide college accommodation, at the
    normal rent, for the fellow (and where relevant a spouse and
    family) provided that application is made immediately after the
    election to the fellowship.

    Fellows will be expected to spend at least one full university
    term in Oxford. They will be permitted to continue to hold the
    fellowship after the funds made available by the college have
    been used up, provided that the total length of the fellowship
    shall not exceed one academic year. Fellows will be expected to
    submit a short report at the end of their tenure.

    Applications should include a completed application form, a full
    curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and the
    names of two referees, and should be sent to the President's
    Secretary at the address below (marked on the envelope `Charter')
    by the closing date of Monday, 23 March.

    Application forms are obtainable from the President's Secretary,
    Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone: Oxford (2)74102, fax:
    (2)74136, e-mail: sue.hales@ wolfson.ox.ac.uk), to whom all
    enquiries should be
    addressed.

    Candidates should themselves write directly to their referees
    asking them without further request to send a confidential
    reference to the President's Secretary by the closing date
    (marked on the envelope `Charter'). References may be faxed to
    the number above.

    Candidates will be selected from written applications and will
    not be called for interview. Successful candidates will be
    notified officially during the second half of May.

    Wolfson/Harwell Industrial Fellowships
    1998–2000

    Wolfson College proposes to make elections (if suitable
    candidates are proposed) to two two-year Wolfson/
    Harwell Industrial Fellowships for the academic years
    1998–2000.

    These fellowships are intended to enable those working at Harwell
    or in industry to come to Oxford to engage in a joint research
    project with a university
    department. Preference for one fellowship will be given to a
    suitably qualified candidate nominated by Harwell.

    The intention is that the fellowships should give an opportunity
    for collaborative research which would not otherwise have taken
    place, but the College is prepared
    to receive proposals in respect of already established
    research projects.

    Proposers will be expected to negotiate an agreement with the
    company by whom the candidate is employed, under which the
    company would continue to pay his or her full salary but would
    permit him or her to spend one-fifth of his/her time on a joint
    research project in Oxford. The college is willing to consider
    a variation from this
    pattern to suit current conditions or individual circumstances.
    Wolfson College will offer up to £1,000 per annum
    towards any expense reasonably incurred in pursuance
    of the aims of the fellowship.

    Applications should include a completed application form, a
    curriculum vitae of the candidate, and the names of
    two referees, and should be sent to the President's Secretary at
    the address below (marked on the envelope `WHIF') by the closing
    date of Monday, 23 March.

    Application forms are obtainable from the President's Secretary,
    Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone: Oxford (2)74102, fax:
    (2)74136, e-mail: sue.hales@wolfson. ox.ac.uk), to whom all
    enquires should be directed.

    References: candidates should themselves write directly to their
    referees asking them without further request to send a
    confidential reference to the President's Secretary by the
    closing date (marked `WHIF' on the envelope).

    Successful candidates will be notified not earlier than mid-May.
