21.01.15 Graduation Day | University of Lincoln Year of Liberty

On a wintry Wednesday there were plenty of warm-hearted wishes from Lincoln School of Film & Media, family and friends to today’s graduates. Congratulations from us all at the University of Lincoln to our latest alumni!  Be proud.

2014grads-unfocused_RWGraduation Day marked the start of the University of Lincoln’s Year of Liberty.  Vice Chancellor Professor Mary Stuart said: This year is an important landmark for the University, the Cathedral, the county and the city of Lincoln, as we mark the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta – the cornerstone of our democracy. In commemoration, the University is making 2015 its Year of Liberty, and I can’t think of a better way to begin than celebrating the success of our graduates.

The library team won a bid to completely house the collection of Picture Post, which is one of Britain’s most significant war-time publications.

The collection, which consists of almost 50,000 pages, was gifted by the family of a local collector, whose affection for the publication saw him amass and preserve each individual copy of the magazine. It will now be stored in the University of Lincoln’s Zibby Garnett Library for special archive materials, overseen by the University’s Academic Subject Librarian, Dr Frederick Dickinson.
