1. REPLACEMENT FOR ULRICH'S INTERNATIONAL PERIODICALS DIRECTORY

After exploring several options, it looks like http://www.publist.com is the best replacement for our previous Dialog subscription to Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory. PubList.com is a free Web site that incorporates Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory.

As described on the PubList.com Web site, "PubList.com is the most comprehensive directory of information about more than 150,000 publications and more than 8000 newspapers around the world. It's easy to use. And it's free. PubList.com information comes from definitive sources such as Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory."

2. REVISED SUL/AIR STAFF DIRECTORY ON WEB

The online SUL/AIR staff directory was revised last week to include up-to-date contact information for all permanent SUL/AIR employees. The directory can be accessed at

http://www-sul.stanford.edu/geninfo/staffdir.html

The changes made with this Fall Quarter update ensure that directory information now matches that available through the online directory (currently Whois) and the printed "Stanford Directory." (This year's version of the printed "Stanford Directory" will be distributed near the end of November.) Changes to your directory information can be made using Prism; for information on how to do this, see the "Speaking of Computers" article at

3. SOCRATES AND FOLIO HANDOUTS AVAILABLE

I have revised the Brief Guide to Searching Socrates II (formerly Hints...); it's now available on the Web at:

http://www-sul.stanford.edu/opachelp/bsocrate.shtml

I have also revised the Socrates booklet and Folio chart; both are available in paper format. For copies or more information, please contact Kathy Kerns, kkerns@sulmail, 5-1186.

4. REMINDERS ABOUT PERSONAL TIME OFF

Remember that personal time off (24 hours per year) is no longer restricted to 8 hours per month and that it runs out at the end of December. You get your new allocation on January 1.

Here's the description of personal time off given in Guide memo 22.7:

A regular employee may take time off from scheduled work for personal reasons with prior approval of his or her supervisor. A full-time employee shall be allowed a maximum of twenty-four hours of paid time off for his/her personal reasons each year--on a calendar or fiscal year basis, as determined by the administrative department in which he/she works. Such paid leave may not be carried forward from year to year, nor paid off upon termination of employment. The maximum allowance per year should be prorated for newly hired or rehired employees, and for part-time employees.


5. STATE OF THE UNIVERSITY ADDRESS ON OCTOBER 29

The 1998-99 annual meeting of the Academic Council is scheduled to begin at 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29 in Kresge Auditorium. President Gerhard Casper will deliver his annual State of the University address and last year's Senate chair, Frances Conley, will present a Report of the Thirtieth Senate. Faculty, including emeriti, are particularly encouraged to attend the meeting, but all members of the University community are welcome.
