LECTURE LISTS

From Michaelmas Term 2003, the University's Lecture Lists will be be published online only at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/pubs/lectures/. For the 2003-4 academic year, the lists will continue to be produced termly in the same format and by the same process as at present. These arrangements will be reviewed, and it is hoped that a more flexible and useful form of Internet publication can be introduced in due course.

The decision to cease production of the printed lists has been made as part of a review of expenditure in light of the University's budget allocations for 2003-4. By ensuring that the online service continues, it is hoped to minimise any inconvenience that this change may cause.

Further information on the background to this change will be sent shortly to divisions, departments, and colleges.

Information on the production of the lecture lists may be obtained from Val Wood (telephone: (2)80548, e-mail: valerie.wood@admin.ox.ac.uk).
