Lincoln Unlocked Fund

Lincoln Unlocked is a new academic and research centre which has been established to support and encourage the study of historic collections. Its aim is to foster interdisciplinary research on private and institutional collections, by drawing on Lincoln’s own resources and expertise.

Lincoln is in an ideal position to support research of this kind. At the heart of the Centre is the College’s own collections of books and archive materials, which date back to its foundation in 1427. Within its comparatively untouched original buildings, the College holds an unusually complete run of administrative records from the time of its foundation onwards; its Senior Library is home to unique collections, including manuscripts, incunabula, and early printed books; while other interesting materials include a small but first-rate collection of historic plate. These resources are ripe for interdisciplinary study and for use as a teaching model for similar enterprises both in the UK and internationally.

Benefitting from an academic community with expertise in a range of related disciplines, Lincoln Unlocked provides a valuable educational and academic resource using both traditional and new technologies, and innovative approaches.

Lincoln Unlocked has been established through philanthropic support from a number of individuals, trusts, and foundations. We hope to build on this success to fund work on the collections and to support the aims of the Centre.
