BODLEIAN LIBRARY

Disruption in central Bodleian reading rooms during Induction Week
(4–6 October)

Readers are warned that there will be considerable disruption in certain reading rooms in the central Bodleian during Induction Week. Throughout the three days Wednesday, 4 October, to Friday, 6 October, library staff will be engaged in taking groups of new underdgraduates round different parts of the library and giving them introductory talks in reading rooms.

These talks will be taking place in the Lower Reading Room Catalogue and General Reference Section, the Upper Camera, the Lower Camera, and the PPE Reading Room. Disruption will be particularly obvious in the Lower Reading Room, where there could be as many as four groups being taken round at the same time, with ten or more students in each group. Similar talks may take place on a smaller scale in other reading rooms during this week and the week following.

The Library is aware that these sessions will cause inconvenience to readers, but believes that it is important to offer library introductions to new students during their first week here.

ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY TEACHERS

The Association of University Teachers is both a professional association and a trade union, committed to the advancement of university education and research. At the national level, the AUT is the recognised union for academic and academic-related staff. Besides its concern for more general questions of university education and research, the AUT negotiates salary levels and conditions of employment with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals.

The Oxford branch of the AUT is open for membership to university and college employees, whether academic or academic-related. It has over 900 members. It is the official body with which the University discusses priorities and problems bearing on education and research, and negotiates solutions to them. Discussions between the Oxford AUT and university officers occur formally once per term at a meeting of a Joint Consultative Committee, but there are many other informal meetings to discuss particular problems, including those affecting the conditions of employment of academic and academic-related staff, such as the `waiver clause' for those employed on contract grants. The local AUT also provides confidential advice on problems relating to terms and conditions of employment.

Application for membership and other enquiries can be made to Mrs Anne Hendry, Administrative Secretary, Oxford AUT, New Barnett House, 28 Little Clarendon Street, Oxford OX1 2HY (telephone and fax: (2)70418, e-mail: aut@vax.ox.ac.uk) (9.30 a.m.--3 p.m., Monday--Friday).

Enquiries may also be directed to the following: Kit Bailey (Honorary Secretary), Department of Plant Sciences (telephone: (2)75090); Denis O'Driscoll (Honorary Treasurer), Department of Biochemistry (telephone: (2)75260); Arthur Marsh (Personal Cases), St Edmund Hall (telephone: (2)74170).

Two meetings of the Oxford AUT will be held in Michaelmas Term. The Termly Meeting will take place on Tuesday, 24 October (third week), and the AGM will take place on Tuesday, 7 November (fifth week), both at 1.15 p.m. in Blackhall, Queen Elizabeth House, 21 St Giles'. (Note: not in the Library Wing of QEH, as previously announced.)

AUT `Freshers' buffet lunch

The AUT would like to welcome newcomers to Oxford by inviting them to a buffet lunch. Anyone who has recently taken up an academic or academic-related post in the University or a college is invited to attend the lunch, which will take place at 1 p.m. on Friday, 3 November, in the Tanner Room, Linacre College.
