ATIO AL DEFE CE BID

r Tom King, the ecretaryof tate for Defence, announced on 18 October in the Hou e of ommons debate on defence pending that, following a nationwide competition, the new Centre for Defence tudie is to be et up at King' College London. Thi pre tigiou new Centre will be led by Profes or Lawrence Freedman, Head of the Departmem of War Studie at King's. Such is the importance attached to this Centre that the University of London i actively con idering the possibility of the Centre becoming, in time, an In titute within the Univer ity. The purpose of the Centre will be to help stimulate and co-ordinate new thinking on East-West strategy, addressing the implications for Western defence of the recent developments in Eastern Europe and generally drawing together academic research on defence issues.

'The Centre is being set up at a time when the international environment is pa ing through a period of remarkable change. This provides both challenges and opportunities for policy-makers over the coming year. It i important for the academic community to help both policymakers and the wider public make sense of these changes, explore the implications for this country, and more generally Europe and the West, and idemify the range of option available by way of a policy re ponse,' he concluded. The Centre will provide a national focus for defence studies in a number of ways:... by maintaining a range of expertise

within the Centre on the core i ue of Briti h defence and ecurity policy and undertaking research on particular issues. ... by keeping in touch with the defen e community and commi sioning research from peciali ts. ... by accepting where appropriate, commi ions from Government, indu try, international organisations and any other intere ted bodie for research projects. Applications will be made to grant giving bodie for additional projects, where nece sary in conjunction with other members of the University or outside bodie . continued on page 16

Commenting on the Secretary of State's decision, Profes or Freedman said, 'London provides an ideal location. Outside the Univer ity and the Polyt~h足 nic ,there are the International In titute of Strategic Studies, the Royal In titute for Defence Studies, plus specialist journalists and commentators. It is possible to maintain close relations with Whitehall, Westmin ter and the media.' 'However: Professor Freedman continued, 'the University recognises that it is part of the Centre's task to provide a national focus for academic work in this area. When commissioning studies the Centre will not be confined to London. Indeed it will seek to maintain excellent international as well as national contacts.' :.:..... :.;.:

David Cult ridge K D (David) Cutteridge who for nearly thirty years wa Radiation Protection Officer of the College died suddenly on 5 July. He was an Oxford graduate who had pent several year at Harwell before being appointed to a lecture hip in the Phy ic Department in 1954. A radioactive material were tarting to be u ed in many re earch department at the time of his appointment the College was very fortunate in having a person of his experience to set up a monitoring service to ensure the protection of workers exposed to thi hazard. He put his experti e to the ervice of many ctiffcrcnt departments and no doubt a erted the pos ibility of what might have become tragic events. He wa a leading figure in the Univer ity of London Radiation Protection Services and had a national reputation in this field. As a lecturer and demonstrator he was highly regarded by his students for the clarity of his teaching and hi dedication to their welfare. He died from a heart attack after returning from a visit to Australia where his son now lives. We wish to express our sincere ympathy to his wife Joan and her family.

MORE EFFECTIVE TEACHING This is the year when academic staff in university institutions, including King's College, will undergo Appraisal. When the AUT agreed to Appraisal they, quite rightly, saw this as helpful, beneficial and u eful procedure for their member. Clearly, teaching skills will feature in the Apprai aI and student opinion will be included in the factors involved here. This will make many of us who teach more conscious than ever of the effectivene s of our teaching. With this in mind a one day course on 'More Effective Teaching' ha been arranged and all academic taff are invited to attend. The day will consist of four workshops on the following topics: 1 Supervising postgraduate and project students. 2 Modern visual pre entation. 3 More effective lecturing. 4 Tutorial and small group teaching.

ER EXHmlTIO

Cambridge Univer ity Library, in as ociation with Lambeth Palace Library and The British Library, is organi ing a Cranmer Exhibition to celebrate the 500th anniverary of the birth of Thomas Cranmer (14 9-1556), who wa the first reformed Archbishop of Canterbury. The Exhibition will be held at The Briti h Library, London larting on October 27 and running through to January 21 1990. 'ational Westminster Bank is spon oring the event. Extensive research has been carried out to obtain original articles and exhibits. These include four portraits from His Grace the Archbi hop of Canterbury and The National Portrait Gallery. A sixteenth century oak pulpit from the Church of St Edward, King and Martyr, in Cambridge forms the centrepiece of the display. Twenty nine books from the Thomas Cranmer' own library have been reassembled for the Exhibition. Since they were dispersed after the Archbishop's death in 1556, this is the ftrsttime that they have been together in one place. The Archbi hop's library reveals him to be a typical Renai sance figure. He po ses ed a real, informed interest in botany, geography, law, history and the vernacular languages as well as theology. The Exhibition Galleries of the Library in Great Russell Street, London W1, are open Monday LO Saturday 10.00 am LO 5.00 pm and Sunday 2.30 pm to 6.00 pm. Entry is free.

COU CIL VIEW Christine Sa under ,newly-elected to the College Council, offers some initial personal impressions. On the first Tuesday of this term I attended my flfst meeting of King's College Council as a newly-elected representative of the non-teaching staff. The meeting took place in the almost-but-not-quite refurbished Council Room: the chandeliers and the new blue chairs were very elegant, but seemed a little desultory in a room without curtains or CarpeL The acoustics were lousy; fortunately I chose a place to sit from which it wa possible LO lip-read the Chairman and the Principal, who were the main speakers. Other Council members may well have left the meeting little the wi er. When I arrived people were having pre-meeting tea. I have an impression of a clu ter of taJl, pin-striped figures sociali ing with each other at a height of about six foot ix from the ground. The Student Union repre entative ,all, like me, attending their flf t meeting, seemed LO exude a combination of nervou ness and fury. They fell on me as a potential ally, presumably because I wasn't wearing a pin-striped uiL One of their number, however,was. 'Conformist!' I taunted. The academic staff members turned up next, fresh from teaching or whatever it is they get up LO. They ju tlooked generally worried, which is hardly surprising under the circum tances. The meeting itself was low-key, mainly consi Ling of reports from the Principal, most of which he repeated in his address to staff the next day, on the research ratings (depending on whom you're speaking LO, the College either did very well or very badly), the UFC's funding policy and its implications, the current position about Cornwall House and the College's late t forays into property speculation.

teaching taff repre entalive, Derek Law, who looked somewhat bemused when the Principal announced his co-option. Ol a lot wa aid that was of direct relevance to the non-teaching tafr. What was far more intere ting to me was the attitud of certain other Council member to their - OUI - own rele ance. I was rather taken aback, for example, when a senior academic confided to me that 'we' don't say anything in Council, that it was mainly an opportunity for the lay members to be involved, and that after all, 'we' have other forums for getting our views across. I suppose thi academic meant the Academic Board, where I am told, iews are often forcefully expres ed and plans even occasionally overturned. Thi privilege i nOl extended to the non-teaching taff, who have no recognised channel for comment or complaint except through their trade unions. I think it is important for the College a a matter of principle, that the views of the non-teaching taff should be ought formally, when it is formulating any plan which will concern us. I don't believe that confining any o-called representation of non-teaching staff on the various committcc , ub-committes and working parties to College Officers or senior academic-related . taff i fair to that majority of clerical/secretarial, technical and ancillary staff in more junior and low-paid jobs. I will be interested to sce, for example, whether there is anyone apart from a student on the forthcoming working party looking into social facililie who eams less than £20K per annum. I want to thank all those who voted for me for giving me the chance to try to do something about all this. I have been invited to join the Amenitie Committee (not to be confu ed with the working party referred to above); it's a start. I hope that any member of the non-teaching staff will get in touch with me on matters which come under the aegis of the Council, and I am also particularly keen to develop links with all the trade union , 0 that I can be a channel for collective ideas. I hope you will contact me with your comment and suggestions and ensure that you make good use of your representative on the Council.

IVERSITIES AWAIT CHA CELLOR'S AUTUM TATEME T In May 1989 the CVCP sent to the Secretary of State for Education and Science its view as to the financial requirements of the univer ities for 1990/ 91. That submis ion was accompanied by a request for an extra £100 million for univer ity pay over and above the amount already announced for universities in 1990/91 in the January 1989 Public Expenditure While Paper and the sub equent 1989 salarie settlement. The main submission also asked for a first payment in 1990/91 towards the £250 million e timated by the former UGC to be needed for essential repairs, an extra £25m a year for three years for equipment and fund to help with restructuring.

6

Since that submission was made, the universities have admitted an extra 6,000 students this autumn. In doing so they have re ponded to the Government's intention described in the Consultation Paper, Shifting the Balance of Public Funding of Higher Education to Fees, to provide real incentives to exploit spare capacity by taking in additional students. Thi extra recruitment strengthens the case for additional funding for 1990/91. This has been empha ised by the Committee at recent meetings with the Secretary of State. The Government's re pon e to the CVCP's ubmission will be known when the Chancellor' Autumn Statement is published in early ovembcr. That response will be seen by the CVC? as an indication of the Government's concern both to maintain quality in the universities and to expand the number of tudents.

CROCKERY Colleagues may have read of the problems the House of Commons have with disappearing crockery. Kings has a similar problem and we are spending far too much on replacement crockery. Please check your cupboards, shelves etc and retum College crockery to the nearest Catering outlet. If you have too much to carry OUI site offices will arrange collection with no charge or recrim inations! BEVERAGE VE DJ G A review of Beverage Vending Operation is shortly to take place and I would be pleased to hear from members of the College who have views on this matter. At the Strand campus there is a lack of beverage provision in the Main and Strand Buildings, Vending might help to olve this, but there has alway been a problem in iting machines in suitable locations. If Colleague can identify available sites I will see what can be done, though it must be emphasised that whilst machines in Common Rooms, Department of Faculty rooms may be desirable they are not usually financially viable.

The Re earch Stralegy Committee ha agreed to fund the pilot tage of a project to con truct a computerised corpu of the Spani h Language. The principal objectives of the project are La con truct a large representative model of Spani h to reflect the variety of the language world-wide, and La de ign the computing infrastructure needed to enable the corpu to be consulted by holar for a variety of purpo es. In order to en ure that the material is reasonably up La dale, the corpu will be restricted to sample collected from 1990 onwards. It i intended that the corpus will reach a steady state over not more than five years and that, ubject to funding it will be maintained at the target size by addition of new material and di carding of old. The corpus will be designed to reflect the wide range of varil:ties of Spanish, both geographical and topical, and material will be collected in accordance with clearly established criteria. It is expected that the corpus will be published in both concorded and both free text form. The project will be under the overall direction of Professor B W !fe, and the team established for the pilot tage will consist of Dr J W Butt, Dr M J Woods, Harold Short (Assistant Director, KCL Computing Centre), Antonia MoreiraRodriguez and Leonor Zimman.

LAUNCH OF A NEW MSc COURSE The reception held in the Council Room on 3 October to launch the new MSc in Research Methods for Remedial Therapi ts was a happy occasion. It brought together students, lecturers and friend of the Centre to celebrate the start of the new degree course. Dr Cecily Partridge, Director of the Centre for Physiotherapy Research which is running the course, introduced Sheila Kitchen, the new course co-ordinator, and thanked all those who had helped in different ways in the setting up of the course. The MSc, the rust specifically for physiotherapists and occupational therapists within London University, is possibly the forerunner of other postgraduate courses for therapists. Those particularly welcomed were Professor Jenifer Wilson-Bamett and staff of the Department of ursing Studies, Dr John Milton from the Department of

8

History and Philosophy of Science, Professor Keith Webster from the Department of Anatomy and Professor Simon Howells from the Department of Physiology. District physiotherapists from the seven affiliated ho pita] were there as were many external lecturers on the course.

Most important the funders came too; Dr Jeremy Metters, Deputy Chief Medical Officer from the Department of Health, and Mc Robert Maxwell, Secretary of the King's Fund, represented the institutions who are funding the course. Sir David Atkinson from the Chest Heart & Stroke Association and Dr Chris Henshall from the MRC were there and seemed interested in the possibility of funding students for the course. We are following this up with great enthusiasm.

Hosting for overseas students HOST is a national charity founded by the Foreign & Commc.nwealth Office, the British Council and the Victoria League to introduce overseas students to British family life. They are looking for families which will be able to invite one or more of these students to join them over the Christmas period. HOST will offer the host family a contribution of ÂŁ5.00 per night per guest, but the overseas visitors themselves pay nothing. The invitation would be from Christmas Eve for 3 or 4 nights. If you wish to know more, please contact Lisa Payne, Student Services Welfare and Information Officer on extension S2530. Or contact HOST directly: Miss J Caesar, 18 orthumbcrland Avenue, London WC2 5BJ. Tel 0] 9252595. Many thanks for your interest and hospitality!

LIBRARY NEWS

MORE LOA S BY LIBERTAS

The Library is now able to use the LIBERTAS system to issue an increasing proportion of its stock. All items in heavy demand, in the Short Loans collections or restricted to two-day weekly loan, are now issued using the computer, which provides an instantly updated record of availability, and also allows an improved reservation system. The Library's resources for science and engineering are now all issued using LIBERTAS, on all four sites. Only the Strand's humanities stock remains to be prepared, and here the summer saw great progress being made. All Laws material, Geography and non-European History material is now issued using LIBERTAS. To simplify return dates for borrowers using the Old Library, all normal loan stock is now issued for 6 weeks, whether borrowed using paper vouchers or using LIBERTAS. In other areas, part of the Embankment collection and the Modem Greek material reclassified during the cooperative project with the University of Crete, have also moved to LIBERTAS circulation. It is hoped that progress will continue to be made, so that all users can benefit from LIBERTAS improved accuracy and currency of issue data. Introduction of PIN numbers ow that LIBERTAS controls so much of the Library's circulation, users may make use of the second option on the OPAC menus to check on what items they have on loan, what reservations they have made, and the addresses the Library is using to contact them. Since all this information is confidential, a system of personal identification numbers has been introduced to improve record security. When you wish to check your loan record,

LIBERTAS will ask for your library card number - this is the 10 digit number printed on the barcode on the reverse of your Library card, and after checking the number for mistyping and then against its records, will ask for your security number before displaying the information requested. If you do not yet know, or have forgotten your PIN, it may be collected from any issue desk 0 PRESENTAnON OF YOUR LIBRARY CARD. Numbers cannot be given out without your card in your absence.

SCIE CE CITATION INDEX ON COMPACT DISK

The Science Citation Index from 1986 to the present is now available on CD-ROM in the Kensington Library. This allows individuals to carry out automated searching of the 3300 major scientific journals in all disciplines covered by this publication, as well as to make use of its unique features relating to cited authors. Because of its anticipated demand it would be wise to book a time slot if you wish to carry out a search. This can be done in person by filling in the book at the issue desk, or by phoning Kensington extension K378. Reserved slots are for approximately 50 minutes from 9.30 am to 6.30 pm(last appointment), Monday to Thursday and from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm on Friday. The work station is situated with the periodicals on the third floor of the Library, but the disks must be borrowed from the issue desk near the Library entrance. Training sessions on the use of the system will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons at 2.30 pm (please book a place on extension K378). Training sessions are compulsory for undergraduates wishing to use the system, and recommended for others. References retrieved may be printed or down loaded to a 3.5" floppy disk.
