RITS Publications has recently revised its instructions for placing material on the SUL/AIR Web site. Up-to-date documentation is now available for all SUL/AIR staff wishing to contribute material to SUL/AIR's centralized Web location (http://www-sul.stanford.edu/).

The "Instructions for SUL/AIR Web Authors" (located online at http://www-sul.stanford.edu/staff/webprocs/) include documents for two different types of Web authors. The first document, Preparing Your Material for the SUL/AIR Web Space, provides instructions for staff members who want to manage their own spaces on the www-sul server. It is designed for individuals who know basic HTML.

The second document, Getting Assistance in Preparing Materials for the SUL/AIR Web Space, is aimed at staff members who would like to contribute to the SUL/AIR Web site, but who do not wish to make the additions or changes themselves. This document provides information on how RITS Publications can assist you in placing material on the SUL/AIR server.

Additional Web procedures documents include instructions on using Fetch and WS_FTP to transfer files, adding Internet resources to SUL/AIR Web pages, and contributing to the "What's New" page.

For more information on the SUL/AIR Web procedures, or for RITS Publications Web help, contact Eleanor Brown at 723-0974, eabrown@leland.

The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors recently passed an ordinance restricting the use of in-line roller skates on the Stanford campus. A response to the proliferation of in-line skating over the past few years, the ordinance seeks to prevent personal injuries and property damage that can result from unsafe skating.

Ordinance NS-1004.134 prohibits roller skating and in-line skating in certain areas of the Stanford campus. These restricted areas include courtyards, parking garages, entryways, tennis courts, and construction sites. Skating is also forbidden on buildings, stairways, walls, fountains, and benches.

Additional sections of the ordinance outlaw skating tricks and stunts, skating at excessive speeds, failure to abide by traffic laws while skating, and unsafe skating practices. Violators may be fined up to $100.

The new law does not apply to skateboards, which are governed by a separate ordinance (NS-1004.131). According to this older legislation, skateboarding is prohibited anywhere within the "central academic campus," which includes most of the Stanford campus.

To report a violation of either of these ordinances, call the Sheriff's Office at (650) 329-2413.
