    EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES CENTRE


    Audio-visual Equipment

    With effect from the start of Michaelmas Term 2000, the ETRC will be
    substantially reducing the types of audio-visual equipment that are available
    for hire. The University's IT Strategy has, for several years, required all
    departments and faculties to equip their lecture spaces with appropriate
    audio-visual equipment, and it has now been decided that the ETRC should
    only provide data/video projectors and larger public address systems in
    future, together with a number of lightweight camcorders.

    Nevertheless, because of the short notice of this change, the ETRC has
    arranged for a commercial audio-visual equipment company to hire equipment
    to University departments for a limited period at the ETRC's regular charges
    as long as the order is placed through the ETRC at least one week before the
    date on which the equipment is required. As long as bookings are made in
    good time, therefore, there will be no additional cost to the customer. From
    Easter 2001, however, departments and faculties will be required to make their
    own arrangements for the hire of equipment where they do not have access
    to suitable equipment from within their own department or division.

    Anyone wishing to hire any audio-visual equipment should contact Miss
    Lisa Wiggins on (2)70526, or by e-mail at Lisa.Wiggins@etrc.ox.ac.uk, at least
    seven working days before the date on which the equipment is to be used.

    Mr James Branston, formerly responsible for the ETRC's audio-visual
    equipment hire service, will be available to provide advice and assistance to
    anyone wishing to purchase their own audio-visual equipment.

    The surplus audio-visual equipment will be offered for sale to university
    departments and faculties, mostly at a nominal price. The detailed
    arrangements for this equipment disposal are contained in a letter which has
    already been sent to all divisional and departmental heads and administrators.
    Any equipment which has not been disposed of in this way by the end of
    week 5 will be advertised for sale to all members of the University.

    Please note that the ETRC's existing video production, videoconferencing
    and multimedia services are unaffected by these changes and will continue as
    before. Anyone interested in these services should contact the following in the
    first instance:

    Video production: Karen Watts (e-mail: Karen.Watts@etrc.ox.ac.uk,
    telephone: (2)70531)

    Videoconferencing: Lisa Wiggins (e-mail: Lisa.Wiggins@etrc.ox.ac.uk,
    telephone: (2)70526)

    Multimedia: Peter Robinson (e-mail: Peter.Robinson@etrc.ox.ac.uk,
    telephone: (2)70532)

    Additional details concerning all of the above are contained in the letter
    which has been sent to all departments and divisions, as well as to all
    colleges.


    Charges for ETRC Services

    In view of the changes in university governance the special ETRC Teaching
    Support Fund, which was established by the General Board in 1998, is not
    being replaced by any equivalent form of teaching support. This means that
    all ETRC services for university and college clients will henceforth be charged
    at the same `university rate', regardless of the purpose for which the service
    is being provided. The only exception to this is where the service is being
    provided to support an activity for which the client is making a direct charge
    for participation, such as a commercial conference, in which case the higher
    `External' charging rate will apply.

    (subject to the availability of tuition or supervision at

    Secretary, Corpus Christi College, Oxford OX1 4JF, asking for
    further particulars and an application form, together with a copy
    of the information for referees. It is the responsibility of
