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.
