COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY

1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 24 May.


Decree (1): Repeal of certain Examination Decrees


Decree (2): New Examination Regulations

Explanatory note to Decrees (1) and (2)

The new University Statutes will come into effect on 1 October 2002. Under those statutes
Council will no longer make decrees to enact secondary legislation, and all such legislation
will take the form of regulations. Council has already enacted some new regulations to
replace
the existing general decrees at the beginning of Examination Decrees, 2001
(see
Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4621, 8 May 2002, p. 1139), and Decree
(1)
below formally repeals the existing decrees which these new regulations will replace. The
exigencies of the timetable for the publication of the successor volume, Examination
Regulations
, 2002, however, mean that it is necessary for Council to re-enact much
of
the existing material in Examination Decrees, 2001 as regulations without
otherwise changing them for 2002--3. Decree (2) below provides accordingly. It is intended
that there should be a more radical revision of examination legislation during the course of
that academic year.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Examination Decrees, 2001, delete from p. 12, l. 1 to p.
27, l. 18, from p.

115, l. 12 to p. 124, l. 45, and from p. 479, l. 1 to p. 480, l. 8.

2 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 2002.

Text of Decree (2)

1 Each of the decrees governing university examinations and related matters
which is in effect
on 30 September 2002, and which has not been replaced by that date by new regulations
made
by Council (or by another body or a person authorised by Council) to take effect from 1
October 2002, shall constitute the corresponding regulations governing university
examinations
and related matters with effect from 1 October 2002 unless and until it is replaced by
regulations subsequently made by Council (or by another body or a person authorised by
Council).

2 Any cross-reference to any such decree in the decrees and
regulations
which are in effect on 30 September 2002, and which have not been replaced by that date
by
new regulations to take effect from 1 October 2002, shall be deemed with effect from 1
October 2002 to be a cross-reference to the corresponding regulation as enacted by Council
(or by another body or a person authorised by Council) or by clause 1 above.

RADCLIFFE SCIENCE LIBRARY


Closure of the Jackson Wing for rewiring and ethernet
installation in the Long Vacation, July–August

For the past five years plans have been progressing to install a new ethernet throughout the
Radcliffe Science Library to enable access to the university network from all parts of the
building, to upgrade the existing limited network, and to ensure that staff and students gain
the full benefits of the electronic resources now available. In 2001 part of the ethernet was
installed below ground and on the ground floor. This year it is intended to extend the
ethernet
to the first and second floors of the Jackson Wing which faces South Parks Road. This
project
in ongoing and it is expected that the ethernet will be extended to the Worthington Wing in
2003 or 2004.

All areas of the Jackson Wing will be inaccessible to readers and staff from 24 June
until 7 September 2002.

The Heads of Departments have been consulted and in the light of this consultation the
closure has been agreed to by the Curators of the University Libraries. The project will entail
disconnecting existing electrical supplies and installing a new riser and cabling at the east end
of the Jackson Wing. The carpet and floorboards will be lifted along a central line in each
of
the Jackson Wing reading rooms and along lines perpendicular to these central lines into each
bay to enable the installation of electrical and data cabling in shallow ducts and electrical and
data sockets. Carpet will be replaced and the new cabling enlivened.

This part of the library contains the open-access material in Biology, Botany, Zoology,
(Biological) Anthropology, Psychology, and Anatomy, about half the Medicine collection and
a small part of Biochemistry. With the exceptions below, this material will be sheeted up and
will be inaccessible.

The Library is taking steps to minimise the inconvenience to readers. For many of the
journal titles affected, electronic versions are available, and their use will be encouraged. For
other titles, second copies are held in other Oxford science libraries and the support of these
libraries has been enlisted in making them available to readers who would normally have
consulted them in the RSL. Titles that are not available by either of those means, and which
the Library's recent usage survey have shown to be in demand, will be moved to temporary
shelving in the Physical Sciences Reading Room. A free inter-library loan will be offered
when material in stock is unavailable. Measures are being taken to notify external users
nationally and internationally.

One hundred and eight seats, and the use of two work-stations, will be lost temporarily.
However, there will still be 420 seats available in the Worthington Wing, Lankester Room
and
Entrance Hall as well as thirty-six computer workstations in these areas.

The Library apologises for the inconvenience this temporary closure will cause. Any
queries regarding the closure should be directed to the Keeper of Scientific Books, Judy
Palmer (telephone: Oxford (2)72820, e-mail: jmp@bodley.ox.ac.uk) or the enquiry desk
(telephone: Oxford (2)72800, e-mail: rsl.enquiries@bodley.ox.ac.uk).

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.

OXFORD UNION SOCIETY

As the first stage of the Library's modernisation and restoration programme, the Oxford
Union
has decided to reduce its collections by about 6,000 volumes with a view to reducing space
for further acquisitions. The books proposed for disposal are fully detailed in a list which is
available for inspection at the Union until 23 May, and members and other Library users who
wish to object to any proposed disposal may do so on a form which is available at the
Library. Books subsequently agreed for disposal may be purchased by members of the Union
on Monday, 27 May, and Tuesday, 28 May, between 9.30 a.m. and 6 p.m., at £1 per
volume (long runs by negotiation).

This exercise, which aims to help bring the Library to a `steady state', is part of a
comprehensive programme which seeks to fund a major restoration of its infrastructure and
its collections.

African Environments Day

An interdisciplinary meeting, including presentations from some of
Oxford's foremost researchers on the African Environment, will be held on Monday, 17
June. Speakers include economists, environmental historians, geographers,
geomorphologists, political ecologists, social scientists and zoologists. The meeting will
bring together contrasting perspectives on key environmental issues, with the emphasis on
discussion and informal input from all.

The aims are to:

—exchange ideas with researchers from other disciplines;

—highlight the potential for new research directions;

—stimulate the development of interdisciplinary projects;

—strengthen networking between departments and with NGOs;

—identify core areas of expertise for the focus of future events, both within the
University and beyond.

The themes of the day are: understanding the African environment; where next for wildlife
management?; poverty as a multi-dimensional problem; land degradation in context.

African Environments Day is open to all, and will be of interest to
anyone involved in research in Africa.

A registration form and further details may be obtained from Lindsey Gillson (e-mail:
lindsey.gillson@eci.ox.ac.uk).

Researching Africa Day

This event, an opportunity to discuss research strategies and their practice in relation to the
African continent, will be held on Tuesday, 18 June. The day will provide a forum for
meeting fellow researchers, exchanging information and experience, and discussing
practical and theoretical issues. Brief papers, of about ten to fifteen minutes, will be
delivered by postgraduates who have recently engaged in research in Africa. The
presentations will be followed by lively discussion of the material.

It is hoped that the day can assist those planning their research with
answers to some of the questions they may have regarding fieldwork
methods, logistics and other practical and theoretical issues. For
those presenting, the day provides an opportunity to share their
experiences and to participate in discussion of how the contingency of
their particular experience may have affected their data.

The day is a multidisciplinary venture and it is hoped that
participants will include historians, geographers, anthropologists,
archaeologists, and scientists. It will be especially useful to
postgraduate researchers.

Further details may be obtained from Christopher Low (e-mail:

Volunteers needed for rabies vaccine study

Would you be willing to help in a study, which could benefit
thousands of people in resource poor countries? Do you need protection against rabies for
travel abroad? If so, you might consider taking part in our research study inwhich you would
receive a course of rabies vaccine. Rabies is a viral infection, which is passed to humans
through the bite of a rabid animal. Safe vaccines are available to protect the traveller and for
treatment following a bite. They are in widespread use but they are expensive, and often
cannot be afforded inthose countries where the vaccine is needed most. The Oxford Vaccine
Group and the University Department of Tropical Medicine want to find a way of giving
these vaccines that would make them more affordable and easier to give. You must be aged
between 18–50 years and have never had rabies vaccine before. If you are interested
and want more information please contact the Rabies Study Team on 01865 221068.

Oxford University Research Staff Society

The Research Staff Society (RSS) membership consists of Post-
doctoral/Junior Research Fellows and Research Assistants who work for the University of
Oxford. As most Research Staff are not attached to a college and may be new to Oxford our
social events provide a unique opportunity to meet researchers outside your group or
department. We aim to provide an interesting and varying social setting in which to mix and
to become a voice for research staff within the University. We run social events each month
to suit all tastes. Please visit our Web site http://users.ox.ac.uk/~rss/, which provides
information on how to join the society as well as details on events which we will be running
in the near future. We hope you will decide to join us and very much look forward to
meeting you at one of our events this year. Our annual dinner with guest speaker Ruth
Deech, Principal of St Anne's College, and past chairman of the HFEA is on 14 May.

Situations Vacant

The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (affiliated to Keble
College) proposes to appoint 2 Junior Deans to assist in the supervision of the building and
the general pastoral care of approximately 70 students. The Junior Deans will be provided
with a room free of charge for the year, and will also receive a stipend at the rate of
£2,100 pro rata over the months from Sept., to Apr., when students are in residence.
Each Junior Dean will be required to be on duty on alternate evenings during CMRS
semesters in case of emergency and to enforce regulations if necessary. Full time assistance
will be required for 5 days at the beginning of the semester and for 2 days at its end. Other
duties include accompanying 4 field trips p.a., invigilating 2 examinations p.a., and helping
organise the JCR. CMRS seeks to provide a Christian environment for students, although
students from other religious traditions or none are also welcome here. The persons
appointed should be in sympathy with this aim, and ideally CMRS would hope to appoint 1
candidate drawn from the Catholic tradition and 1 from the Protestant. Applications, which
are limited to graduate members of the University or recent graduates, should be sent,
including a full c.v., and the names of 2 referees, to The Senior Tutor, CMRS, St Michael's
Hall, Shoe Lane, Oxford OX1 2DP by Mon., 27 May.

main exam period which starts this year on 13 May and finishes on 21 June. There are
openings to work on either a session basis, where you invigilate individual exam sessions
based on your availability for work, or on a block booking basis. A block bookings option
requires a commitment to work one of the following: full time for the 6 week exam period;
specific weeks during the exam period; specific days in the week during the exam period.
These options can be discussed in more details with the Deputy Clerk of Schools (Exams).
The work involves laying out of question papers, completing relevant paperwork, and
invigilating during the examination session. The majority of exam papers are 3 hours
duration which require an invigilation session of approximately 4 hours (morning session:
9 a.m.–1 p.m., afternoon session: 2 p.m.–6 p.m.). The payment details for a
standard invigilator working a 4 hour session are as follows: 4 hr session (for 3 hr papers):
