EDUCATIONAL RECORDING AGENCY


Survey of off-air recording

This notice is to inform members of the University about a
survey of educational recordings in which the University is
obliged to participate this year, and to request co-operation
in collecting the necessary information.

The University (including its constituent colleges) is
covered by an Educational Recording Agency (ERA) Licence to
record radio and television broadcasts and cable programmes for
educational use, without infringing copyright. The University
pays about £24,000 per annum for this licence.

It is a condition of the licence that institutions may be
required to maintain for a specified period of time details of
radio and television recordings made under the licence and to
return this information to the ERA. Oxford University has been
selected to take part in ERA's survey during the period
1 September 1998 to 31 August 1999 and the
University is therefore asking all staff for assistance in
collating the information required.

In each department and college, and some faculty offices,
an individual has been nominated as the local co-ordinator for
the survey. All staff are asked to give details to the most
appropriate co-ordinator of all recordings of radio and
television programmes which they make for educational purposes
whether at home, in the University, or elsewhere. The
information required is the title, date, and channel of the
programme, and the location where the recording was made. As
statistics have to be returned by the University at the end of
every month, it is important that a co- ordinator is informed
as soon as possible after a recording is made.

The identity of the local co-ordinator should be publicised
in each department, college, and (where appropriate) faculty
office. If it is not clear, the departmental administrator,
senior tutor, or faculty office administrator should be able to
identify the co- ordinator. In cases of difficulty, details of
recordings can be passed instead to the University's central
co-ordinator, Miss Catherine Long, at the ETRC (telephone:
(2)70529, e-mail: catherine.long@etrc.ox.ac.uk). It is, of
course, necessary to pass information about recordings only to
one co-ordinator; there is no need, for example, to inform both
a college co-ordinator and a faculty co-ordinator but simply
the one which is most convenient.

Please note that ERA are likely to visit the University at
some stage during the survey period and to monitor the
information returned against recordings held by the University.
It is therefore important that the required information is
collected carefully and that recordings are available for
inspection if necessary. It is also important to note the
requirement (which is general and not just for the period of
the survey) that each recording should be labelled with the
date and time, and with the statement that `This recording is
to be used only for educational purposes'.

It is hoped that the survey will not cause too much
inconvenience, and the full co-operation of members of the
University would be appreciated.

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 and/or
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.)

LADY ALLEN SCHOLARSHIP

The Trustees of the late Lady Consuelo Maria Allen wish to offer
a Lady Allen Scholarship for research study in Spain, tenable for
one year with effect from 1 October 1999.

The Lady Allen Scholarship is open to students who are
working for a higher degree of the University of Oxford in the
field of Spanish history, literature, languages, music, and other
cultural aspects of Spain. Because of Lady Allen's interest in
promoting cultural understanding between Spain and the United
Kingdom, preference may be given to candidates who are citizens
of the United Kingdom.

The trustees will offer an award towards the cost of either
research study in Spain or a taught course at a Spanish
university in the field described above. The award will be
tenable for either one academic year or one twelve-month period,
as appropriate, and will be set at a level between £6,000
and £8,000, at the discretion of the trustees, depending on
the estimated subsistence costs. In the case of applicants
wishing to register for a taught course at a Spanish university,
a supplementary award may be made (the total award will not,
however, exceed £10,000).

A committee comprising representatives from the Modern
History Board, the Modern Languages Board, and other boards as
appropriate, will draw up a short-list of candidates on the basis
of their academic merit for the consideration of the trustees.
The trustees will award the scholarship primarily on the basis
of academic merit, but if all other things are equal, they may
give preference to a candidate from Exeter College.

Application is by a form available from the Administrator,
Faculty of Modern History, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BD
(telephone: Oxford (2)77253), together with a proposal, not
exceeding four sides of A4 paper, setting the academic context
of the work which the applicant wishes to undertake in Spain and
outlining what he or she would hope to achieve during tenure of
the Allen Scholarship. The deadline for applications, which
should be addressed to the Administrator of the Modern History
Faculty, is Friday, 11 June. Applicants are asked to arrange for
two references, one of which must be from their supervisor, to
be received by the Administrator by the same date.
