to park closer to where you work this summer?
Because of the absence of many students and faculty and staff members during the summer months, some lots have been identified as having some space available for rental customers. A fee of $15 will allow faculty or staff members, who are current renters, to park in a temporary facility through Aug. 16.
The list of available facilities can be found at the divisions Web site at www.parking.uiuc.edu. All temporary parking will be issued on a first come, first served basis. Space is limited.
To request temporary parking, go to the Division of Campus Parking and Transportation or call Linda Harms at 333-3530.

Goodwin Avenue between Gregory Drive and Nevada Street in Urbana is closed to traffic until Aug. 20 for the installation of underground utilities. The circle-drive entrance for Freer Hall will be inaccessible during the closure.
Dorner Drive in Urbana will be reduced to one lane, southbound, through July 1 for road-surface restoration. Access to the F-29 parking garage on the corner of Dorner and Gregory drives will be from Gregory eastbound until July 1.
Gregory Drive, normally restricted to bus and service-vehicle traffic, will be the detour route for public traffic while Dorner Drive is being worked on.
On July 1, Dorner Drive will reopen to two-way traffic, and all traffic to and from the F-29 parking garage will use Dorner Drive. At the same time, Gregory Drive again will be restricted to bus and service vehicles.
As the work progresses north on Goodwin Avenue, access to the Freer Hall circle drive and related parking will be opened as soon as possible. However, no access to Freer Hall from the north will occur until after Aug. 20.
Descriptions and drawings of traffic routes associated with this and other projects on campus are on the Web at www.pdc.uiuc.edu/Street_Closures/index.htm.
of Publications and Marketing
Campus units will receive a request for updates to the units section of the directory by e-mail in July. Updated entries will be due about four weeks later.
Faculty and staff members should check their listings in the faculty/staff section (pages 363-616) of the current directory to ensure it is correct. Listings are based on payroll records; therefore, any faculty/staff member who wants to change a listing must update his/her payroll file well before Sept. 21. See page 3 of the current directory for instructions. E-mail address listings may be changed on the Web at https://www-s.uiuc.edu/ede or by going to Campus Information Technologies and Educational Services (CITES formerly CCSO) at 1420 Digital Computer Laboratory. (See page 10 of the current directory.)
Do not contact the Office of Publications and Marketing to change an individual listing.
For all of the following, forms are now available. Completed forms must be received by Publications and Marketing by Sept. 3 and all changes to payroll records must be made well before Sept. 21 in order to appear in the printed directory.
Listings for nonsalaried employees and for personnel at allied agencies are derived from forms available from your departmental business office and the Office of Publications and Marketing (333-9200). A new form must be submitted each year.
If your payroll record does not contain all of your titles or if you filled out a joint appointment form last year and your appointment has changed, contact your departmental business office or call 333-9200 to request a form.
University employees who will be retiring or going on permanent disability between June 1 and Sept. 30, 2002, should request a Retired/Disability form from the Office of Publications and Marketing (333-9200) to include their listing in the next directory. Those who retired or were on permanent disability prior to June 1 will automatically receive a form in the mail after June 1; the form will be sent to the address on file with the Annuitants Association. Call 333-9200 if you have not received a form by June 30. Participation is voluntary and you must file a new form every year to be listed in the directory.
The program is open to the public. Call 244-5074 to register for the event, which will take place in the WILL-TV studio in Urbana. WILL-AM 580 will air the discussion portion of the program live at 8 p.m. June 25, and the audio also will be available online at will.uiuc.edu. Listeners will be invited to call in with questions or comments.
The documentary "Refrigerator Mothers" will air on WILL-TV at 9 p.m. July 16, as part of "P.O.V.," the acclaimed non-fiction film series on PBS. It looks at the period from the 1950s through the 70s when the medical establishment thought it had found the root cause of autism: poor mothering. Doctors now know that autism is a brain disorder. But for a generation of women, branded as cold "refrigerator mothers," the damage had been done.
