1 Following the move of the Faculty of Divinity from the Divinity School to a new building on the Sidgwick Site these regulations are redundant.

2 Because of an increase in the number of staff in CARET and the extensive commitments of the Director as a representative of the University on e-learning activities both nationally and internationally, it is proposed to establish the offices of Assistant Directors in the Centre.

3 Statutes and Ordinances, p. 697. It is proposed to constitute Appointments Committees for Librarians in these institutions according to the relevant Schedules.
