LIBRARIES COMMITTEE


Consultation rocess on
proposals for the development of integrated Library
Services within the University

Following from the recommendations of the Thomas
[1]
and
Kenny
[2]
Reports in 1995, and with the approval of
Council and Congregation
[3], the Libraries Committee of
Council and the General Board and the Director of
University Library Services and Bodley's Librarian have,
since January 1997, been working towards a greater degree
of integration of library services within the University
in the context of a three-year interim framework.

This activity has been independent of, but will now be
informed by, relevant aspects of the Report of the
Commission of Inquiry (the North Report), the primary
thrust of which (on governance and joint appointment) is
likely to be submitted for wider consultation within the
University during the academic year 1998--9. It has not,
however, been thought necessary or desirable to defer
progress on library aspects pending consultation on other
and broader issues raised by the North Report.

With a certain amount of temporary restructuring having
taken place within the provisional remit of the Libraries
Committee (including the creation of a Library Services
Directorate and the implementation of a new subcommittee
structure), the committee has recently approved the
Director's proposals for a wider and more detailed
consultation process with the relevant library
authorities and librarians within the University. Based
on a range of discussions with representatives of all
parts of the libraries sector (including departmental and
college libraries), the Libraries Committee has agreed
the following timetable for the presentation and
elaboration of proposals for the more formal integration
of the University's library services and facilities. (The
intention is that such proposals should, if approved by
the University, begin to be implemented during the year
2000.)

13 July 1998. General meeting of the
Librarians of Libraries Committee Libraries with the
Director of University Library Services (discussion of
timetable and outline proposals on integration).

July--September. Meetings of the Director
with individual Libraries Committee Librarians and their
chairs of library management committees or
equivalents.

Meetings of librarians across the University with subject
responsibilities, convened in four broad disciplinary
groupings (Humanities; Social Sciences; Sciences;
Medicine), to discuss subject-based approaches to service
integration and development.

24 September. Libraries Committee planning
meeting (to include further development of formal
proposals for consideration by Libraries Committee
Libraries' local management committees and faculty
boards).

Michaelmas Term. Formal consultation of
local library management committees and faculty boards by
the Libraries Committee.

3 December. Libraries Committee meeting (to
include consideration of responses to the consultation
process and preparation of formal proposals for
consideration by the General Board, Council, and
Congregation during 1999).

The timetable outlined above covers consultation within
the group of libraries for which the Libraries Committee
has direct financial responsibility. However, planning
aimed at developing integrated library services within
the University must also take account of the major
contribution made by departmental and college libraries,
a fact recognised in the statutory provision made for the
involvement of these sectors in the work of the Libraries
Committee and its subcommittees. The above schedule of
consultation will therefore be supplemented throughout by
continuing discussions within the University's library
sector in the widest sense, and comments will be welcomed
at any stage from all interested parties. Such comments,
together with any requests for further information,
should be addressed to Mr L.C.C. Reynolds at the
University Offices (telephone: (2)70199, e-mail:
laurence.reynolds@admin.ox.ac.uk).

The Libraries Committee will publish an updated version
of this notice after its planning meeting on 24
September.

BRITISH LIBRARY STRATEGIC
REVIEW CONSULTATION PAPER

The British Library is preparing a strategic plan for the
next five years in succession to Strategic Objectives for
the Year 2000, published in 1993.

The current strategic review has been partly motivated by
the British Library's recognition that financial
constraints will prevent it from achieving all of the
objectives identified in 1993. While perceiving
opportunities in the future planning period, particularly
in the potential for increased access offered by its
`digital library' programme, the British Library will be
seeking ways to adapt to diminishing grant-in-aid income.
Amongst the options under consideration for inclusion in
the new strategic plan are:

---expanding the range of revenue-generating services;

---charging for access to reading rooms;

---reducing or withdrawing existing activities and
services.

In a letter of 6 July the Chief Executive of the British
Library has invited comments on the options from
institutions and individuals by 28 August.

The University will wish to comment in view of the
potential implications for research and scholarship of
some of the options. The consultative document has been
circulated to chairmen of faculty boards, and the views
of the Libraries Committee will be obtained.

Individual members of the University who would like to
contribute to the University's response are invited to
send their comments to Mr L.C.C. Reynolds at the
University Offices, Wellington Square, by 14 August.
Alternatively, comments can be sent direct to Stephanie
Kenna at the British Library, 96 Euston Road, London NW1
2DB (fax: 0171-412 7251, e-mail:
strategic.review@bl.uk).

Copies of the consultation paper may be obtained from
Stephanie Kenna. The paper is also available on the WWW
(http://www.bl.uk).

COMPUTING SERVICES


Charging for Janet
Transatlantic Traffic

Most IT users around the University will by now be aware
that charges will be levied from 1 August 1998 for Janet
traffic received by this University. For the first year,
these will be met by the General Board, but it should
also be noted that they will be also subsidised in the
first year by approximately 50 per cent by HEFCE. The
effective rate of charge in the first year will be 1p per
megabyte (including VAT). Only inbound traffic will be
charged for, and any traffic arriving between 1 a.m. and
6 a.m. (seven days a week) will be free (in the first
year). Traffic directed through the national Web cache,
to which all traffic through the Oxford cache is
directed, will be free (in the first year).

No decision has yet been made by the IT Committee on a
recommendation about how the charges in subsequent years
should be met, but the possibility that they will be
passed on to departments and units will doubtless receive
careful consideration. Nor has the IT Committee decided
yet if it wishes to make use of the Oxford Web cache
compulsory for all Web traffic that could pass though
it—at the moment, use of the cache is voluntary. Of
course, use of the cache may often be slower than going
direct (unless someone else has recently retrieved the
same page), but against this should be considered the
charge that would be incurred.

Use of the cache can be invoked (for Netscape 4) by
selecting Preferences in the Edit menu, then Advanced,
then Proxies, selecting Automatic Proxy Configuration,
and setting http://info.ox.ac.uk/cache.pac in the URL box
(full details for all browsers at

http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/oucs/proxies/
).

Further details of the charging arrangements, and the
measures that are being taken within Oxford to monitor
and account for traffic, can be seen at the following Web
page

BODLEIAN LIBRARY


Refurbishment and
revitalisation of the S.T. Lee Reading Room of the
Radcliffe Camera (Lower Camera)

Thanks to the generous support of the Radcliffe Trust and
of Mr S.T. Lee, work on refurbishment of the S.T. Lee
Reading Room (Lower Camera) will commence during Closed
Week (beginning Monday, 31 August). This work will
include a new lighting system, improved IT facilities to
new reader tables, IT work-stations located in a central
facility, and enhancements to the staffing area. It is
anticipated that the work will continue until the end of
January 1999 although the Reading Room will retain normal
opening hours throughout this period. Some disruption,
however, is inevitable as temporary rearrangements of
books, furniture, and other items will be necessary to
enable the work to proceed bay by bay. Full details of
these rearrangements will be posted within the Reading
Room. Further information can also be obtained directly
from Reading Room staff (telephone: (2)77204).

ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY
TEACHERS

The Association of University Teachers is both a
professional association and a trade union, committed to
the advancement of university education and research. At
the national level, the AUT is the recognised union for
academic and academic-related staff. Besides its concern
for more general questions of university education and
research, the AUT negotiates salary levels and conditions
of employment with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and
Principals.

The Oxford branch of the AUT is open for membership to
university and college employees, whether academic or
academic-related. It has over 900 members. It is the
official body with which the University discusses
priorities and problems bearing on education and
research, and negotiates solutions to them. Discussions
between the Oxford AUT and university officers occur
formally once per term at a meeting of a Joint
Consultative Committee, but there are many other informal
meetings to discuss particular problems, including those
affecting the conditions of employment of academic and
academic-related staff, such as the `waiver clause' for
those employed on contract grants. The local AUT also
provides confidential advice on problems relating to
terms and conditions of employment.

Application for membership and other enquiries can be
made to Mrs Anne Hendry, Administrative Secretary, Oxford
AUT, New Barnett House, 28 Little Clarendon Street,
Oxford OX1 2HY (telephone and fax: (2)70418, e-mail:
aut@ermine.ox.ac.uk) (9.30 a.m.--4.30 p.m.,
Tuesday--Thursday).

Enquiries may also be directed to the following: Kit
Bailey (Honorary Secretary), Department of Plant Sciences
(telephone: (2)75090); Denis O'Driscoll, Department of
Biochemistry (telephone: (2)75260); Arthur Marsh
(Personal Cases), St Edmund Hall (telephone: (2)74170).

There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting on
Tuesday, 29 September, 1.15--2 p.m.

The Michaelmas Term meeting will be held on Tuesday, 27
October, 1.15-- 2.30 p.m.

Both meetings will be held in Blackhall, Queen Elizabeth
House, 21 St Giles'. All AUT members and non-members will be welcome.

THE ROYAL SOCIETY


Exchanges with the Former Soviet Union
(FSU) and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)

The society has both formal and less formal agreements with
leading scientific organisations in many countries. In general,
scientific exchanges with these countries fall into three
categories: study visits, fellowships, and joint projects.

Agreement visits. Bilateral exchange agreements for
short-term study visits in both directions exist with the
academies of science in all the FSU republics (except Kyrgyzstan
and Tadjikistan), Croatia, Macedonia, and Romania. Bulgaria,
Hungary, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, and the
Czech and Slovak Republics participate in the society's European
Science Exchange Programme (further details are available from
the society).

Prospective visitors to the UK should apply to their national
academy of science. UK scientists should apply to the Royal
Society. Support covers travel and subsistence costs.

Ex-quota visits (all countries). UK scientists may
apply to the society for support for a visiting scientist, where
that researcher is unable to apply under the Agreement scheme.
Visits usually last between ten days and three months (up to six
months for the FSU). Priority is given to those applications
which are likely to yield significant benefit to the UK side.

Royal Society/NATO Postdoctoral Fellowships. These
twelve-month fellowships are aimed at recently qualified
postdoctoral scientists and are to provide them with their first
opportunity of working in a western scientific environment,
Candidates must have their doctorate within the last five years
and must not have more than seven years' doctoral-level
experience. Those candidates who have spent, or will have spent
at the start of the proposed visit, nine consecutive months in
a western research laboratory, including North America and Japan,
are not eligible to apply. The UK host applies directly to the
society on behalf of the prospective visitor.

Joint projects. Joint projects are designed to
support longer term collaboration over two years. Funds are
provided to cover the cost of travel and subsistence (up to

CHANGES IN REGULATIONS

The following change in regulations made by the General Board
will come into effect on 14 August.


General Board of the Faculties

Memorandum of Guidance for Research Students and their
Supervisors

With immediate effect

In Examination Decrees, 1997, delete from p. 847,
l. 39, to p. 850, l. 18 and substitute:

`MEMORANDUM OF GUIDANCE FOR RESEARCH STUDENTS AND THEIR
SUPERVISORS


Responsibilities of the student

1. The student must accept his or her obligation to act as a
responsible member of the University's academic community.

2. The student should take ultimate responsibility for his or
her research programme and endeavour to develop an appropriate
working pattern, including an agreed and professional
relationship with the supervisor(s). The student should discuss
with the supervisor the type of guidance and comment which he or
she finds most helpful, and agree a schedule of meetings.

3. He or she should make appropriate use of the teaching and
learning facilities available within the University.

4. It is the student's responsibility to seek out and follow
the regulations relevant to his or her course, including
faculty/departmental handbooks/notes of guidance, and to seek
clarification from supervisors and elsewhere if this is
necessary.

5. The student should not hesitate to take the initiative in
raising problems or difficulties, however elementary they may
seem. He or she should ensure that any problems regarding the
project are drawn to the attention of the supervisor so that
appropriate guidance may be offered.

6. The student should seek to maintain progress in accordance
with the plan of work agreed with the supervisor, including in
particular the presentation of the required written material in
sufficient time for comment and discussion before proceeding to
the next stage. As groundwork for the thesis, the student should
as soon as possible write rough drafts of possible chapters.
Students in the sciences should keep a systematic record of all
that has been attempted and accomplished. Both the student and
the supervisor will want to keep a record of all formal,
scheduled meetings. They may well want to agree a record of what
has been discussed and decided.

7. The student should recognise that a supervisor may have
many competing demands on his or her time. The student should
hand in work in good time to the supervisor and give adequate
notice of unscheduled meetings. The need for adequate notice also
applies to requests for references from the supervisor.

8. The student should be aware that the provision of
constructive criticism is central to a satisfactory supervisory
relationship, and should always seek a full assessment of the
strengths and weaknesses of his or her work.

9. If the student feels that there are good grounds for
contemplating a change of supervision arrangements, this should
first be discussed with the supervisor or, if this seems
difficult, with the appropriate head of department, director of
graduate studies or their deputies, or the college adviser.

10. Where problems arise, it is essential that a student gives
full weight to any guidance and corrective action proposed by the
supervisor.

11. The student should provide regular reports on his or her
progress to the faculty board in accordance with the requirements
of the Committee for Graduate Studies of the General Board. The
student must satisfy the supervisor on his or her progress at
least once a year and should inform the supervisor at once of any
circumstances that might require his or her mode of study to be
modified or his or her registration as a graduate student to be
extended, suspended or withdrawn.

12. The student should ensure that the standard of his or her
English is sufficient for the presentation of a thesis. Students
whose first language is not English should take advice on this.

13. The student should make full use of the facilities for career
guidance and development, and should consult their supervisor for
advice and encouragement where appropriate.

14. The student should ensure that he or she allows adequate time
for writing up the thesis, taking the advice of the supervisor.
Particular attention should be paid to final proof-reading.

15. It is the student's responsibility to decide when he or she
wishes to submit the thesis for examination, after taking due
account of the supervisor's opinion, though this is only
advisory. It is in the student's interests to ensure that the
final version has been made available to the supervisor in good
time before the intended date of submission.

section



Responsibilities of the supervisor

1. In considering an invitation to supervise a research
student, the supervisor must recognise and accept the
responsibilities both to the student and to the relevant faculty
board or committee implicit in the supervisory relationship.

2. Where practicable, the supervisor should assign the student
some directed reading before arrival. This might be of a general
background nature so as to put the student in a position to
discuss the topic with the supervisor soon after arrival, or it
might form the start of a literature survey. The supervisor is
required to make an appointment for a meeting with the new
student not later than the first week of Full Term.

3. The supervisor is responsible for giving early advice about
the nature of research and the standard expected, and about the
planning of the research programme. The supervisor should ensure
that, where the student's research forms part of a funded
research programme, sufficient financial support will be
available for the duration of the student's period of study; if
there is any doubt, he or she should agree with the student an
alternative fallback project at an early stage. The supervisor
is also responsible for advising the student about literature and
sources, attendance at classes, and requisite techniques
(including helping to arrange instruction where necessary). The
supervisor should discuss with the student the lecture list for
his or her subject and related lecture lists. The supervisor
should identify with the student any subject-specific skills
necessary for the proposed research.

4. Where during his or her first year of research a student
wishes, in addition to contact with his or her supervisor(s), to
have limited consultation with one or two other academics the
supervisor should try to identify (in conjunction with the
Director of Graduate Studies for the faculty, sub-faculty or
department) such colleagues and to arrange for an approach to
them by the student.

5. Where a supervisor operates as a co-supervisor or as a part
of a supervisory team, it is important to clarify the
responsibilities of each supervisor and to co-ordinate advice and
guidance.

6. Where the thesis is likely to involve statistical analysis
or tabulation of numerical results, the supervisor should arrange
for the student to obtain advice, at an early stage, about the
design of any experiment or the collection and storage of data,
and about its subsequent analysis.

7. The supervisor should ensure that the student works within
a planned framework which marks out the stages which the student
should be expected to have completed at various points in his or
her period of study. The nature of the framework will of course
vary widely from subject to subject, but in all subjects the
formulation of the topic, planning and careful management of time
should begin at an early stage. Particular attention should be
given to the selection and refinement of the research topic,
which in the case of the D.Phil. should be one which a diligent
student may reasonably be expected to complete within three (or
at most four) years of full-time study.

8. The supervisor should meet with the student regularly.
Times should be fixed to ensure that a busy supervisor does not
inadvertently find that meetings are less frequent than the
student would like, and to give sufficient time for the student
to discuss the work and for the supervisor to check that certain
things have been done. Informal day-to-day contact should not be
seen as a substitute for formal scheduled meetings. The
supervisor should also be accessible to the student at other
appropriate times when advice is needed. The supervisor should
also request written work as appropriate and in accordance with
the plan discussed with the student. Such work should be returned
with constructive criticism and in reasonable time.

9. The supervisor should tell the student from time to time
how well, in the supervisor's opinion, work is getting on, and
try to ensure that the student feels properly directed and able
to communicate with the supervisor. It is essential that when
problems arise, corrective action is clearly identified and full
guidance and assistance are given to the student.

10. The supervisor is required to report to the faculty board
on the student's work three times a year, once at the end of each
term. Each report should state the nature and extent of recent
contact with the student, and, if there has been none, state why
this is so. The report should also make clear whether the student
is making satisfactory progress, bearing in mind that a D.Phil.
thesis should normally be completed within three (or at most
four) years of full-time research. Any student who has not
satisfied his or her supervisor on at least one occasion in an
academic year that he or she is making progress will be liable
to have his or her name removed from the register.

11. The supervisor should aim to ensure that by the end of the
first year the topic or goal of the student's research is clearly
defined, that the student has the necessary background
information, and that the required resources are available. The
supervisor must have ascertained by then that the student can
write a coherent account of his or her work in good English.

12. The supervisor should try to ensure that unnecessary delays
do not occur. These have been known to arise, for example, for
reasons such as the following:

(a) insufficient effort at the outset in choosing
and formulating the research topic;

(b) a slow start because of the time taken to adjust
to research work;

(c) distractions from the main line of inquiry;

(d) superfluous attempts to tie up every loose
end;

(and mainly in the sciences)

(e) inadequate and delayed planning and assembly of
apparatus and equipment;

(f) insufficient collection or recording of data at
an early stage, so that work has to be repeated in the later
stages.

13. The supervisor should arrange for students to have the
opportunity to discuss their research with other staff and
students in their subject area (see also (3) above) and to
communicate to others in the wider academic community, both
orally and in writing, his or her research findings.

14. Where a student undertakes research as part of a team or
group the supervisor should ensure that this is in full awareness
of the way in which the student's own contribution fits into the
work of the remainder of the group.

15. The supervisor should not be absent on leave unless
appropriate temporary supervision has been arranged for the
student.

section



Responsibilities of faculties and/or
departments

1. Faculties and/or departments should provide information
about:

(i) any induction provided on a departmental, faculty or
University basis;

(ii) welfare arrangements within the University, eg. the
Counselling Service, Student Hardship and Access funds, the
provisions for support offered by the Proctors and the Assessor;

(iii) any general transferable skills from which the student
is likely to profit during the course of his or her research, and
the available provision at departmental, faculty and university
level.

2. Faculties and/or departments should ensure that there is
appropriate monitoring of a student's work and progress and that
reports are submitted on a termly basis in accordance with the
University's requirements.

3. Faculties and/or departments should endeavour to provide
opportunities for a student to:

(i) defend his or her findings to appropriate research
seminars and respond to potentially critical questioning;

(ii) at an appropriate stage to present his or her findings
to national, and if appropriate, international conferences;

4. Faculties and/or departments should

(i) help the student to present work in a clear and
professional manner;

(ii) help the student to develop his or her communication
skills, especially for different audiences;

(iii) provide some guidance in oral examination techniques.

section



Safety and Health

Supervisors of all students, whether in the arts or in the
sciences, should consider carefully the safety implications of
their students' research. Those supervising students
(particularly those in the sciences) are responsible for all
aspects of safety under their control, and in particular for the
safe conduct of all experiments carried out in the course of
their students' research. In the event of an accident, inadequate
supervision may render the supervisor liable to prosecution.
Supervisors should also ensure that their students are made aware
that in the event of injury to other persons as a result of their
negligence, the student could be subject to civil claims for
damages. Advice on the legal responsibilities for safety may be
obtained from the University Safety Officer. For their part,
students must carry out research with proper regard to good
health and safety practices. Supervisors and students should be
aware of the need for adequate health insurance and health
precautions when travelling abroad. In case of doubt, reference
should be made to the University Medical Officer.'
