Visit the Mace websiteStaff and student researchers from the University of Lincoln now benefit from access to the UK’s first accredited film archive, after the Media Archive for Central England (MACE) was recognised for its outstanding service.  The Archive Service Accreditation is the new quality standard created to celebrate good performance in service and delivery, and MACE has been named among the first six organisations in the country to receive the quality mark.  The screen archive for the East and West Midlands is housed in the University of Lincoln’s School of Media, and it is the only resource of its kind to receive the award from the UK Archive Service Accreditation Committee, which represents the archives sector nationally.

Midlands on Film DVD CollectionEarlier this year, MACE collaborated with experts from Lincoln School of Media to create a unique series of documentaries, entitled ‘Midlands on Film’. The DVDs celebrated the on-screen heritage of the region. Sarah Barrow, Head of the Lincoln School of Media, said: “We are so pleased to have MACE on our doorstep – the archive offers high quality tangible opportunities to our students, graduates and staff as a base for research and employment. We really look forward to developing that connection at such an exciting time and congratulate the team for achieving this well-deserved recognition of their work.” Continue reading
