The MIT Bulletin 1996-97, Courses and Degree Programs Issue (also
known as the course catalogue), is now available to all students and
staff in Rm 5-134 from 9:30am-4:30pm each day through Tuesday, Sept. 3.
Again this year, there will be no interdepartmental mailing of the
Bulletin. Faculty members can get copies in their department
headquarters, while staff who now pick up their mail in a Distributed
Mail Center (DMC) may get a copy there. This change, begun last year,
allows faster distribution.
MIT identification must be shown when picking up a Bulletin in Rm
5-134. Should one person pick up copies for several people in an office,
a list of those individuals' names is requested for distribution
records. When picking up a Bulletin from a DMC, use the sign-out sheet
Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 4, copies will be available to the
community in the Information Center, Rm 7-121, or the Communications
Office, Rm 4-237. Copies for alumni/ae will be available in the Alumni
Center, Rm 10-110.
Offices that normally receive carton delivery should expect to
receive one again this year. They may contact Ruth T. Davis at
<firstname.lastname@example.org> to confirm quantity and room number.
The course descriptions and schedule of classes for 1996-97 are
available on the World Wide Web home pages for MIT Reference
Publications at and the Registrar's
Office at <http://registrar.mit.edu/>.
