He desires that these appointments shall be notified to the Clerk of the Schools who will inform the Vice-Chancellor and see that notice of them is duly published in the University Gazette.

Accommodation for Lectures

Hilary Term 2001

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture at the Schools in Hilary Term 2001 could inform the Clerk of the Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to know whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred persons is required; only the three large writing- schools will accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the end of the seventh week of Hilary Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection equipment and 35- mm projectors are available. When these facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be notified in advance.
