MUSEUMS' AND COLLECTIONS' POLICY
STATEMENT

The Oxford University museums and collections have prepared the
following policy statement, which has been endorsed by the
General Board of the Faculties, and the Board's Committee for the
Museums and Scientific Collections.

`The Museums, Botanic Garden, and other Collections of the
University of Oxford (referred to below as `the collections')
form a resource of unparalleled range and depth, international
scholarly importance, national heritage status, and public
interest.

The mission of the University with respect to these resources
is as follows:

1. To form a focus and resource for research and teaching
across the entire University.

2. To be used as a research resource for a wide range of
external scholarly users, nationally and internationally.

3. To serve as an educational resource for schools, and for
other tertiary education institutions.

4. To form a catalyst for life-long learning and cultural
recreation in the immediate region, and for national and
international visitors.

5. To create a focus of communication between the University
and the public, especially in the local area.

6. To take part in the cultural and economic development of
the region.

Strategic objectives

In order to fulfil our responsibilities to the collections, our
objectives are:

1. Continued, long-term development of the museums as
university departments for teaching and research and promotion
of collection-based scholarship in the individual academic
disciplines.

2. The long-term care, conservation, documentation, and
planned growth of the collections and supporting services, in
accordance with professional standards and good practice, and
expanding museum skills.

3. Increased access to the collections' resources, and to
programmes created around them, for the widest possible set of
audiences outside the University.

4. Development of links within the University and with other
institutions and organisations.

5. Provision of professional advice to other similar
institutions.

6. Creation of new vehicles of information and communications
technology (ICT) access.

In fulfilling these objectives, we note that:

(a) The policy of the University is that entrance to
the four major university museums should be free of charge,
except for certain special events.

(b) The scale of the university collections is such
that public access is only possible to a small, but still very
substantial, portion of the whole at any one time.

(c) The breadth of resources in the collections and
range of programmes based upon them often means that choices must
be made between competing uses.

(d) The special nature of some collections dictates
that they will not normally be accessible except to scholars.

Physics; Particle and Nuclear Physics; Theoretical Physics)

—Plant Sciences (including Forestry Institute)

Members of these departments whose University Card has the status
of Member of Congregation, University Staff, Departmental Staff,
Retired Staff, Academic Visitor, Graduate or Recognised Student,
are no longer eligible to use the OUCS Help Desk Service. They
should seek advice through their local IT Support Staff using
whatever arrangements have been made locally.

Not all departments are affected by these changes: the services
offered to non-RAWP-funded units (most of the Humanities and many
of the Social Sciences) are not affected, other than for
undergraduates. Undergraduates and Visiting Students will
normally be expected to seek advice from their college who have
been invited to subscribe to the Advisory Service (but not to the
Micro Consultancy Service) on their behalf.

All formally registered IT Support Staff are allowed to contact
the Help Desk on their own behalf or on behalf of their users.
OUCS staff will then decide whether to deal with such users
directly or via their IT Support Staff.

Over the last year these changes, as recommended by the Review
of OUCS, have been discussed at the University IT Users' Group,
Colleges' IT Group, and the recent ITSS Conference and widely
advertised (including notices in the Gazette,
letters to Heads of Departments, and letters to Heads of Houses).
Further information about the changes can be found at
http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/internal/charged-help-service.html.
Queries about the new arrangements should be addressed to Dr Sue
Brooks, Assistant Director (Distributed Computing), on (2)73231
or to sue.brooks@oucs.ox.ac.uk.

EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES CENTRE
(ETRC)


Restricted services during August 1999

The ETRC will be closed for the whole of August due to staff
shortages during the holiday period. Some staff will,
nevertheless, be at work during most, if not all, of this month,
but no specific services can be guaranteed.

Anyone wishing to hire any audiovisual equipment should contact
the ETRC during July in order to ensure that the equipment they
require can be reserved while the relevant staff are
available.

Anyone wishing any other services during August is advised to
telephone first (university extension 70526) to ascertain when,
or if, the service they require will be available.

The full range of ETRC services will be available, as usual, from
1 September.
