if the head of the college to which the chair is allocated should
be Vice-Chancellor at the time of an election.]

CONGREGATION 28 November


Notice

As explained in the Vice-Chancellor's Oration
(Gazette, p. 174) and in the notices on pp. 37 and
184, Council had in mind the possibility of a debate in
Congregation on 28 November about the report of Council's Working
Party on Senior Library Posts. Council has now given further
consideration to the timetable for this debate and has decided
that it would be preferable for the matter to be put before
Congregation in Hilary Term rather than at the end of Michaelmas
Term, in order in particular to allow time for consideration of the
report of the advisory group (chaired by the Warden of Rhodes House)
on the management structure for an integrated library system, which
will be published as a Supplement to the Gazette on 16
November.

    DENYER AND JOHNSON STUDENTSHIPS 1996–7


    Revised notice

    Applications are invited for Denyer and Johnson Studentships, to be
    awarded to graduates reading for higher degrees under the Board of
    the Faculty of Theology if candidates of sufficient merit present
    themselves.

    A studentship is tenable for one year, but the board does have
    discretion to renew a studentship if a holder applies. The value in
    1996–7 will be such sum as the board may determine in the light
    of other emoluments accruing to the student during his/her tenure but
    is not likely to exceed £1,350.

    Candidates should apply in writing to the Secretary to the Board of
    the Faculty of Theology, University Offices, Wellington Square,
    Oxford OX1 2JD, not later than 1 February 1996, and
    should (i) give a summary of their academic record; (ii) state what
    course of study they would pursue while holding a studentship; (iii)
    submit the names of not more than two referees; and (iv) give brief
    details of their financial resources.

    SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN CONGREGATION

    Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council, approved the
    following arrangements for junior members to speak in Congregation
    under the terms of Ch. I, Sect x (Statutes, 1995, p.
    199), which reads as follows:

    `Any junior member as defined in Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2,
    may speak at a meeting of Congregation, if called upon to do so by
    the Chairman at the Chairman's discretion, provided that the Chairman
    may at any time terminate a debate on the floor of the House and
    proceed to the final speeches and the taking of a vote.'

    The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call upon
    nominated representatives of the Oxford University Student Union and
    the Oxford University Graduate Union if they wish to speak in debate,
    and will normally expect to call upon junior members to speak only
    from among those who have given advance notice of their wish to be
    called. Should the Chairman consider that the number of junior
    members who have given such notice is excessive, he or she will have
    to be selective in calling upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure
    a balanced debate in relation to the apparent spread and strength of
    views held by junior members. If informed selection is to be possible
    it is desirable that when giving notice of the wish to be called a
    junior member should indicate (a) whether he or she intends
    to support or oppose the motion before the House, (b)
    whether he or she would speak on behalf of any club, committee,
    group, or association, (c) whether he or she is supported by
    other junior members (up to twelve of whom might sign the notice).

    If the number giving notice is small they will all be admitted
    to the floor of the House although this does not ensure their being
    called. In other cases some selection may be necessary at the stages
    of both admission and calling of speakers. If there is to be time to
    tell applicants whether they will be admitted notice will have to be
    received in good time. Junior members should therefore send in such
    notice, in writing, to the Registrar to be received at the University
    Offices not later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the debate in
    question. The name of any representative nominated by OUSU or OUGU
    should also be communicated to the Registrar, in writing, through the
    President of the respective organisation by that time. A notice will
    then be posted in the University Offices and on the gate of the
    Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on the morning of the
    debate, indicating whether all applicants will be admitted to the
    floor of the House or, if selection has had to take place, the names
    of those selected for admission to the floor.

    Junior members not admitted to the floor of the House will
    normally be permitted, as at present, to listen to the debate from
    the gallery. Junior members on the floor of the House will be asked
    to remain in their places while a vote is being taken.

    Under Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, junior members are
    defined as `those persons who, having been admitted to matriculation,
    are residing to fulfil the requirements of any statute, decree, or
    regulation of the University or reading for any degree, diploma, or
    certificate of the University and who have not proceeded to
    membership of Convocation'. (Membership of Convocation is normally
    obtained by taking the MA degree.)

    BODLEIAN LIBRARY


    World Wide Web access to ERL databases

    The Bodleian Library has been asked by SilverPlatter to participate
    in the development and beta-testing of WebSPIRS, an ERL client that
    can run on a WWW server so allowing users to access the ERL server
    from graphical WWW browsers such as Netscape and Mosaic. The
    prototype is now in operation on a server which is considered to be
    powerful enough to make it generally available—previously it was
    advertised only to a small section of the University (ERL-Sig and
    DataSets-Sig). Feedback is welcome, and should be directed to David
    Price, Head of Systems, Bodleian Library.

    Users should bear in mind that this is still an experimental
    service. The Mac, PC, and Unix clients should continue to be used for
    any serious database work until it is announced that WebSPIRS is
    sufficiently robust and functional to provide a quality service.

    Access to WebSPIRS is gained by using the URL:
