By Rob Wells

Guardian chief editor honoured by university By Shane Croucher Alan Rusbridger, the Guardian’s editor-in-chief, was the guest of honour at Lincoln Cathedral on September 10th when he received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University. Having apologised for his “silly hat” in reference to his ceremonial attire, Rusbridger spoke of his pleasure at receiving the award: “It’s a great honour. It’s the first time. Actually, I’ve had a degree

before, but this is my first degree ceremony. I think it’s very nice — that journalism is not only taught at Lincoln, but is also rewarded and recognised.” A far cry from his first days as a journalist, Rusbridger received his award alongside Lincoln’s 2009 digitally-aware Journalism graduates. He has watched closely as his industry is slowly transformed by a digital revolution. The technological face of journalism is one every aspiring journalist should recognise, something

he emphasised: “They need to understand digital - by which I mean not simply mastering new technologies, though that helps, but also understanding the way digital is transforming the way people collect, share and respond to information today.” Rusbridger is also known for writing children’s books, such as The Smelliest Day At The Zoo. He also has writing credits for the BBC drama Fields Of Gold, which he coauthored with Guardian colleague Ronan Bennett. Cont. p3

Lincolnshire Police issued 1,084 parking tickets in one year on Ruston Way in Lincoln, alongside the Pavilions student accommodation. The road was used by many of the development's residents last academic year, and became notorious for frequent ticketing by the police. The figure, released by Lincolnshire Police in response to a freedom of information request put in by The Linc, covers the 12 months from August 1st, 2008 to August 1st, 2009. It is the equivalent of almost three parking tickets being issued every day for the entire year. Phil Lindley is a third-year student who lives at Pavilions and says he received perhaps 25 or 30 tickets on Ruston Way last academic year. "I've lost count, literally," he says. At £30 a ticket, this one road will have raised over £30,000 for

the police, since if a ticket is not paid within a certain amount of time the fine increases. "Because everybody parked down there it was very lucrative for them. The biggest mistake I made was not paying them off straight away… I'm sure I paid for [the police's] Christmas bonus." In total, he thinks he may have paid £1,000 in parking fines last academic year. Parking options for students in Lincoln are incredibly limited, though most advise students not to bring their cars. Even so, for those who do bring their cars, "It's so restrictive round here if you want to park, it's ridiculous," says Mr Lindley. At the Pavilions there are only 12 parking spaces available for students to use, despite the many parking bays in front of the complex's residential blocks. Those spaces are inaccessible for car users for most of the academic year, kept behind a locked gate that residents can only

EDITOR: Daniel Ionescu

You are holding one of the finest issues of The Linc so far. The team has been busy for the last few weeks putting together this issue, and we are proud to present you a whole new The Linc. Over the summer, while most of the student body was away, we had a trial, with some very interesting outcomes. For just over two weeks in May, we worked every day to deliver you with the latest news and fresh interesting material for you to read online at www.thelinc.co.uk. During this trial we also had an image overhaul, which you can now see reflected in this printed version. And the results were positive. Thanks to your feedback on Twitter and Facebook, together with our own survey, we found that you liked what we did. So this academic year we decided to attempt what no other Lincoln student publications had: starting September 28th, we will be updating our website daily throughout December and then again from January through May. If you visit our website daily, you will find the latest news re-

Parking in Lincoln ‘ridiculously restrictive’ By Rob Wells

nd

Priority for the few spaces goes to students on nursing and social p work courses, and those wanting a spot have to write a letter or email explaining their need. Even then, the permits cost £400 for the academic year. k With almost no alternative option, many students have no choice but to park on Ruston Way's pavement. Those living in the student courts are also out of luck as there is no on-campus parking for students, though they can use the University car park after

company sells "season tickets" to its facilities, providing a month, three months, or a year's worth of access. But this does not come cheap. For a student who wants to have their car in Lincoln for the entire academic year, it would cost at least £680. On top of the cost, the location of the NCP car parks in Lincoln may mean a long walk before you can drive. Nearly everyone recommends that students don't bring their cars to Lincoln.

Student parking in the university’s car park is only available at weekend and after 16.30 daily, when most of the students have no lectures or seminars.

4.30pm on weekdays and at weekends. Similar to the Pavilions, there are parking spaces nearby, but are unavailable for use and signs warn of "24 hour mclamping.” g Things are easier for students living in houses. For those who live in Residential Parking Zones, such as in the city's West End, permits for on-street parking can be bought from Lincoln City Council. However, since shared student houses are classed as "Houses in multiple occupation", or HIMOs, students pay a fee of £52 per permit. This is double the £26 that an ordinary household would have to pay for its first permit. (A second or third permit would cost £52 each.) For those whose can't get parking at their accommodation, and still want to bring their cars, there is only really one option left: use an NCP car park. The

dent courts, say that everything in the city is so close you don't need one. Though he continues to bring his to University, Mr Lindley says his advice to first-year students would be to "only bring it if you absolutely need it". Another third-year student, Steve Ward, said: "Lincoln is a very small and compact city. You don't really need a car to get around." He admits that "the only reason I've got a car here is to do big shopping trips".

Even over 30 years as a journalist can’t safeguard you from the current crisis consuming the industry. Alan Rusbridger, editor-in-chief of the Guardian, is wading through the mire like every other journalist out there, as they all face journalism’s toughest time in history. However, despite news outlets taking a battering as their circulation and advertising revenue crash, he is optimistic that the necessity of journalism in communities will help it survive: “Imagine living in a town like Lincoln and there was no radio station, no newspaper and no websites. How on earth you would inform yourself about what’s going on and how you would keep power accountable, if nobody knew what decisions were being taken about the town or city? That’s not such a remarkable thing to imagine – that could happen in towns. And that, I think, leads you to the answer. This is the kind of information I think a society needs in order to live, which leads you to what journalism is. It may not be the sort of traditional journalism on a local newspaper ten years ago, or twenty years ago, but it’s still going to be necessary.” Journalism’s survival could come through an increase in citizen journalism, with so much technology at our fingertips in gadgets like the iPhone: “I’m fascinated by how journalism is changing. We’ve been through the phase where everyone has a website and we sort of understand that phase of the digital revolution. I think the next bit is going to be incredibly interesting because it’s going to involve readers much more in generating content.

I think there’s going to be a new kind of relationship between journalists and readers, which I think will have profound implications for democracies – that’s what stops the job from ever becoming mundane. It’s changing so fast that you feel as though you’re almost reinventing journalism every day.” The BBC and its free online content is often cited as a blockade in the corporate news industry’s attempts to find a profitable online business model. Does the BBC undermine Rusbridger’s efforts? “At the margins, but as a citizen I would prefer to live in a country with the BBC as it is.” One interpretation of the corporate news industry is that it only serves its own business interests as opposed to those of the people. Maybe the downfall of corporate news isn’t so bad? According to Rusbridger: “We should be thankful to anyone who wants to take the risks — and absorb the losses — of newspaper publishing at the moment.” Aside from the worries of journalism’s future, Rusbridger is also concerned about the UK’s libel laws. He has himself defended the Guardian against defamation suits, most notably with former MPs Jonathan Aitken and Neil Hamilton. He is a strong critic of our current defamation legislation and has said in the past that reformation is needed. I asked for specific changes he believed should be made: “Switch the burden of proof to the claimant, as in all other areas of civil law. Cap costs, especially no-win-no-fee arrangements. Stop large companies from being able to sue unless they can prove actual damage or malice.” So who does he think is the best journalist out there? “The bravest, most enterprising jour-

nalist I think at the moment is Ghaith Abdul-Ahad, who writes for the Guardian. [He] is an Iraqi who had started as an architect and over the last five years has been into the most incredible hotspots in Iraq and now in Afghanistan. He blends into the background, seems to be completely fearless, and writes and takes pictures of the most extraordinary things. I think he is a remarkable journalist.” Lastly, we’re back at the burning issue. What’s the most important change needed to save the news industry? “Well, the obvious thing is finding the revenue model that works. It feels to me as though we’re not far away, and we’ve known for a long time that there was a declining line in circulation and print revenue, and that digital was one day going to prove the solution. The problem is you get a recession in the middle of that and it makes everything much more difficult. But I think a combination of software, hardware, mobile platforms, changing habits, and actual recognition of what you would lose when journalism disappears. I think people will then work out the fact that you do need verifiable sources of news in communities.” An optimistic outlook to say the least, but if he believes we’re close to finding the business model will he reveal any Guardian plans for securing their future? “We are owned by a Trust whose only purpose is to ensure the future of the Guardian.” Extra Online Listen to audio snippets of Alan Rusbdger’s interview and read his whole speech from the Lincoln graduation ceremony online at: www.thelinc.co.uk

New system for student IT security By Rob Wells

The University of Lincoln's IT department is implementing a new system to help protect students' computers from viruses and other nasties. It will check that students have adequate protective software on their computers before allowing them to connect to the University's network. The plan aims to stop any nefarious computer bugs from spreading via the network and causing problems with either other students' computers, or the University's. The department already provides free anti-virus software to all students and staff. Mike Day, head of the University's IT department, says that the idea is to make sure the student experience is safe and the new system will allow them to be more proactive in making sure students have adequate anti-virus protection. It will only be in use for students living in the University Courts at the Brayford Campus, and at Riseholme. It is hoped to be fully operational by the time students come back from the Christmas break. Mr Day says this is because freshers often get their first permanent computer at Christmas. The department hopes that it will be a seamless transition for students . Mr Day said: “The process is the same that they'll already go through now to get on to the network. It won't look very different from the students' point of view, but the checks in the background may well be different ones, more extensive as we roll this out. “We really don't want to shoot ourselves in the foot by introducing something that's supposed to help and it actually

doesn't.” To help this aim, Stuart Hickling, a desktop support officer, said: “We're not going to rush the process. If the consultations highlight problems we'll go back and address them. “We need user feedback to make sure that the process is simple and easy to follow.” Ian Marshall, the University's IT infrastructure manager, says another benefit is that it will be easier to connect gaming consoles to the network, though this may not happen straight away. Privacy concerns were raised when Dan Derricott, a part-time Students' Union officer, solicited student feedback on the idea and asked: “Would you be happy for the University to scan your PC? Surely it would just catch out those machines that could cause damage — or might it go further?” But Mr Marshall is keen to stress that it would in no way infringe students' privacy. He says: “None of these checks actually install anything on the machines. There is [a program] that runs, but it doesn't stay on your harddisk or in your memory at all. It just runs and reports back.” In addition, what is reported back is very limited, says Mr Day. "The only information we record is the fact that someone's passed the checks and therefore they can access our system. That's all that gets recorded.” The University will benefit from the past experiences of other institutions, says Mr Hickling. “We're in the fortunate position that there's 500 other institutions that are already using this, 90 plus in this country. We're liaising with other universities that are also using this system so we can benefit from their experience as well.”

The IT department hopes the system will make students’ safer when using their computers in the student courts, and prevent problems that have occured in the past.

Don’t talk to Frank U

r

Illustration: Michael Schofield

By Shane Croucher The bars of Westminster are lined with politicians slurping their way through bottles of fine claret and the pub trade in the area does very well. As they poison their livers, they’re all too happy to use the up-surging bile in their anti-drugs tirades. Yet, alcohol causes on average 15,000 deaths per year, whilst ecstasy causes just 30. Should we stop listening to the politicians anti-drug advice? Danny Kushlick, of drugs policy think tank Transform Drugs Policy Foundation, believes many politicians are secretly against their publicly fanfared war on drugs: “Most politicians, off the record, would agree that the war on drugs is overwhelmingly counterproductive and that a system of regulation would help things no end.” It’s easy for political expedience to trumpet anti-drugs rhetoric, even if the evidence points towards the opposite conclusion. But, there’s a deeper level to prohibition. A whole industry has been built off the back of the criminalisation of drugs, as Kushlick points out: “We’ve had 50 years of a political rhetoric combined with a financial and political resourcing of prohibitionist empires; from prison building to the drug enforcement agency, police, intelligence services, security services, and a lot of political capitol built on that.” There’s a heavy reliance on the status quo, with any move away spitefully criticised as being “soft on drugs”, or surrendering to organised crime. So why would any professional politician jeopardise their career? “It provides what appears to be a very, very strong position for politicians, because it’s built on 50

years of propaganda, which is very difficult to turn around. While all the evidence shows that this is one of the stupidest things on earth to be doing, that can’t possibly engage with propaganda. This is because propaganda doesn’t deal with evidence, it deals with its own internal self-referential truth. It isn’t amenable to evidence, it’s only amenable to more bullshit.” Talk To Frank is the government’s anti-drugs service targeted at teenagers and young adults. How effective and reliable is it? *BQ this:“The problem with initiatives like Talk to Frank is they are built on a drug policy framework that is hypocritical to the end.”* Kushlick points out that the approach to alcohol and tobacco is completely different to that of illegal drugs, but that we “have around 8 million tobacco addicts, and between 2 and 4 million chronic drinkers”. Meanwhile, he says, things like cannabis is trated as a “scourge”. Those two messages, he says, “don’t stack up”. The skewed signals being given out by Frank can be seen on its website. The organisation states about alcohol: “For most people, if you drink within the sensible limits for regular drinking, that's OK.” However, its message about illegal substances, many of which are less harmful according to scientists, is one of risk and dire consequence, even in moderation. Are most young drug users acting irresponsibly? “If you look at the rates of use amongst young people...the vast majority use them relatively safely...the significant problems with use of drugs are related to alcohol and tobacco – but that’s not what most people will think of amongst the general public. If you ask them what the most dangerous drug they know of, a lot will

say pills are. This is because of all the propaganda built up around Leah Betts. Clearly there are risks Th associated with it, but these are rel- un atively minimal compared with ve those associated with the abuse of lik alcohol.” ge A big risk, caused by criminalisation, is you can’t tell the purity of ba a substance you may take. Indeed, do horror stories have emerged about stu drugs being cut with poison. ap However, the UK’s leading cenin tre for information and expertise on drugs DrugScope said: “The idea ce that drugs such as heroin are commonly adulterated with dangerous tio substances such as scouring pow- pr 8% ders, rat poison, ground glass, th brick-dust etc has no foundation in ov forensic evidence. “Anecdotal evidence from drug 61 workers, drug users, the police, and the politicians means that reports of th adulteration are common but its ex- m istence is unproven. There are many be reasons why drug dealers would not tin want to cut the drugs they sell with dangerous substances.” The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) is an independent body of experts who advise the government on drug related issues in the UK. However, the government often goes against the advice of the ACMD, with the most recent example being the reclassification of cannabis from class C to B, which the ACMD opposed. The Council have also stated that the current classification system “is not fit for purpose”. In a new system they proposed, alcohol ranked as more harmful than ecstasy, LSD and cannabis.

Performing arts University should escape k grads slate course recession unscathed By Rob Wells

d

By Rob Wells

Though the recession has l- undoubtedly affected universities in the UK, it looks like they're well-placed to get through it unharmed. The most noticeable disturf bance caused by the economic downturn is likely to be that of t student numbers — both those applying to, and those accepted ninto, university. on The University of Lincoln received a total of 12,146 applicas tions this year for degree programs, an increase of 910, or 8%, on 2008's total. Nationally there was a 10% increase, from n over 550,000 in 2008 to nearly g 610,000 in 2009. While it is true that many nd of thousands of applicants may x- miss out on a place at university ny because of the government cutot ting back the increase in places, h

it is important to remember that there still will be more students taking a place at university this year than last year. The move was taken by the government in order to limit increases in its spending, but there still will be be more tuition fee money going to universities. Some funding has been cut, though. The Higher Education Funding Council for England (Hefce) has reduced the amount given to the University of Lincoln in teaching grants by £501,768. While a large amount of money in its own right, this is just 1.36% of the total the University recieves, which is in excess of £36 million. Hefce had reduced teaching grants by £65 million nationally, leading the University and College Union to warn that it "will equate to the loss of a further

1,500 full time lecturing and support staff”. The union's general secretary, Sally Hunt, says that the cut “is just the first wave of new cuts we are likely to see in higher education." The idea of cutting any funding from universities has been called into question. The OECD, a rich-country think tank, says that countries should put more money into higher education. The group says that governments get far more out of university graduates — in tax revenue, for example — than it costs to educate them in the first place. More generally, funding cannot be too tight at the university, as it has just built Sparkhouse 2 as well as sponsoring Lincoln City Football Club's away and third strip, and has advertising inside the Sincil Bank stadium itself.

Feedback from graduating performing arts students has tarnished an otherwise good verdict for many of the University of Lincoln's courses in this year's National Student Survey (NSS). The University has otherwise performed well and was ranked 41st of 154 institutions, based on the average score across all subject areas. Two-thirds of final-year students at Lincoln took part in the survey. Dance and drama students were the source of the most "definitely disagree" responses to the survey at Lincoln. The negative responses were largely focused on the feedback students received from tutors, and the way the course was organised and run. A majority of students, 60%, thought the course was not well organised and did not run smoothly, while only a fifth said that it was. Half of the students who responded to the survey said they did not receive prompt feedback on their work, and a third said the feedback was not detailed. When asked if the feedback had "helped [them] clarify things [they] did not understand," 42% said it hadn't, and no students said it "definitely" had. Constantine Pavlou, a thirdyear drama student, said: "The course isn't particularly well run, but the main problem-- is that they don't have enough faculty, and the course is suffering because of this." Finance and Accountancy, the star of the show for the University, had "definitely" negative responses to just four of the survey's 22 questions. There were 12 questions with such responses for performing arts.

The Lincoln School of Journalism looks set to continue its great series of visiting speakers this academic year. The school has "an amazing list of visiting speakers for the coming term," according to Professor Richard Keeble. On the list this time is Air Vice-Marshall Andrew Vallance, the secretary of the government's DA ("Defence Advisory") Notice committee, a voluntary censorship system on national security matters. He will speak on Monday, October 26th. Also coming to speak is Tom Bower, who won a libel case this summer brought by Richard

Desmond, the owner of the Daily Express, who sued Mr Bower over allegations made against him in a biography of Conrad Black, the jailed former owned of the Telegraph newspapers. Previous guest speakers include Will Lewis, editor-in-chief of the Telegraph Media Group, Nick Davies, a Guardian journalist and author of Flat Earth News. The lectures usually take place on Mondays at 6pm, in the Cargill lecture theatre. Full details and dates of this semester's events will be available in the coming weeks.

Performing arts was an exception in the university’s otherwise good NSS results.

By Elizabeth Fish There are not many musicians out there who have come out of Lincolnshire. However, there was one band, I Was A Cub Scout, who looked set to change that. From playing to crowds at Leeds and Reading to the duo’s quirky music videos on MTV, it was going well. Until they split. But drummer Will Bowerman, 21, didn’t give up there. Now he has worked with the likes of Panic at the Disco and Babyshamles, and is currently drumming for electropop newcomers La Roux. Will wanted to be a drummer ever since he was a child. He recalls sitting in his front room listening to a Cream cassette given to him by his dad. “Clapton is obviously a great guitarist, but it's Ginger Baker's drumming that really took my interest. I had never heard anything so fast and driving before. I had a very mini kids' toy kit, and I tried to recreate this beat for days and days in a row. “On my seventh birthday, my parents gave me a vintage Premier set and the rest is history! It's drummers such as Ginger Baker from Cream and John Bonham from Led Zeppelin that

made me really want to play. I loved that they weren't hidden and they were at the forefront of the band. "People think drums are just to back up guitars, but the possibilities are endless on a kit, and they should be played to be noticed. And these guys were certainly noticed.” I Was A Cub Scout, Will’s first professional band, started when he and another musician, Todd Marriott, decided to work together. Marriott was “a wizard with electronics”, as well as writing catchy dance songs, so the pair experimented by adding the live drums, with promising results. Bowerman managed to get a place at a music college in Brighton, but decided to drop that in pursuit of the band. Fortunately the gamble paid off as they got signed soon after. “I figured that I would give that a shot instead of going to college, as what's the point being taught about music when you could be out there learning for yourself?” The band had many successes, including a memorable gig at a small festival called Pukkelpop, where Will remembers the cheers being “literally deafening!” But this was not to last as on June 5th

2008 the band decided to split. “When we started the band, we were 16 and 17, and very different people to when we split up a few years later. Musically and personally we wanted very different things. We were very different

“People think are just to ba tars, but the ties are endle kit, and they played to be people from day one, and by the end we just had nothing in common. I wanted to continue playing music professionally so the band splitting up was quite a blow, but in the long run it has worked out in my favour.” “Luckily, I have been asked to drum for most of the people I drum for which is unbelievably flattering. There are a lot of bands and singers I would have

loved to play for like The Joy Formidable, Marina and the Diamonds, and Eliie Goulding, but they clashed with other work I had been doing at the time. “I have no favourites, as I've been fortunate enough to only

Will managed to catch La Roux’s eye when he attended an audition to drum with the duo, singer Elly Jackson and synth player Ben Langmaid, and the rest is history. “I’m playing in La Roux for the next couple of years. It is nice to travel to places like the USA,

Japan, Australia, and still play huge theatres as apposed to dingy clubs. It's good to be touring in buses too with the amount of touring we are doing, as huge tours in vans can get really tiring. “I went to the USA and around Europe with Cub Scout, but now I am doing more thorough touring in these countries and new places too. It’s so exciting!” La Roux have been busy promoting themselves, as well as releasing an album with hit singles ‘Bulletproof’ and ‘In For The Kill’. They played festivals such as Glastonbury and the Leeds and Reading Festivals, but on bigger stages to bigger crowds than in the I Was A Cub Scout days. “I Was A Cub Scout did a lot of the smaller stages at festivals like Leeds and Reading, Download, and Latitude. I've also done a lot of folk festivals with Jim Moray, which was great fun. Now with La Roux we are doing a lot bigger, international festivals. Festivals are a very good way of promoting an artist, as people that may not usually go to their show may pop a long just out of interest and be converted! So every booking agent wants their band to play as many festivals as possible, and I have been lucky enough to play some of the best.

“The year so far has been intense. My highlight was Glastonbury Festival this year. It was my third show and 10,000 people showed up. It was unreal and very moving.” Since joining La Roux, Will has finally been able to move to London, something he always dreamed of doing. Despite drumming for years and holding many memories from before La Roux, there were times when Will wanted to give up, especially during his teenage years. “During school, I had a phase of not playing at all. I just wanted to fit in and didn't want to be any different to anybody else, so I didn’t tell anyone that I played an instrument. It was only a matter of time until I realised I was rubbish at everything else and that I should probably keep drumming.” For a session drummer Will Bowerman has an incredible tale to tell. From humbly experimenting with a popular local band, which unfortunately ended, to becoming La Roux’s newest member, he has proved that drummers don’t have to — and shouldn’t — blend into the background. His advice to drummers is simple: “Have some fun, don’t worry, and stay in time.”

A brand new art debate series called 'Art-Jacking' is to be launched in Lincoln next month. As of October 7th, the Lincoln Art Programme will be inviting the city to debate the role of art in public environments and its past, present and future, particularly in the live art and performance area. The first debate focuses on the questions "Live art asks us what it means to be here, now" and "When live art is presented in a public environment to an unsuspecting audience, does it alienate or empower the people and places it seeks to engage?" The first debate will also feature guest speakers who are active in the art industry, including Hugh Dichmont (review editor of a-n.co.uk), Lois Keidan (Live Art Development Agency), Ana Benlloch (avatar performance art),

Lawrence Bradby (artist and writer), and will be chaired by Lauara Eldret (Collectingliveart.com). The speakers will present their case in favour of empowerment or alienation, before opening it to the floor. The Lincoln Art Programme, sponsored by the University of Lincoln, is also using Art-Jacking to explore Lincoln, visiting different locations and audiences across the city. The series will try to establish Lincoln as an innovative place for live art, as well as encouraging contemporary artists and organisations with their work. The event will be held at the University's Greestone Building on Lindum Hill, 1pm- 3pm. The event is free, but booking is advisable. For the chance to get involved, or for more information on the rest of the series, visit www.lincolnartprograme.co.uk.

Coming up this October... Stuck for something to do in October? Here's a run down of what's going on around the city next month: October at The Engine Shed looks set to entertain for gigs, starting with indie-rock band 'The Cribs' on October 3rd, followed by comedian Stewart Lee, as part of 'Lincoln's Comedy Festival', held at various venues across the city. For those who missed them the first time round, 'Reverend and The Makers' will be making a return to the Engine Shed on October 23rd, and finally Austrailian comedian, Jim Jefferies, known for his

TV appearances on 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks', 'Have I Got News for You' and 'Fighting Talk', ends October's gig listings on the 24th. Meanwhile, Lincoln Drill Hall offers romantic play 'Winterlove' on October 4th, based around an unhappily married woman risking everything for the man she really loves, as well as for 12 nights only, 'Showstopper!', a musical created in less than a day, with interesting results. Alternatively, take a step back in time to 1923, as the Drill Hall welcomes the silent film 'Salome', composed by Charlie Barber.

Making a digital difference By Rob Wells Paul Stainthorp is probably not what you'd expect if you were only told that he is a librarian at the University of Lincoln. "Perhaps the stereotypical view is a bit out of date," he suggests. Paul is the university's "Electronic Resources Librarian", and is charged with looking after the library's expanding collection of digital works, as well as the systems used to manage and access them. The job is just a year old, and Paul says that it 'ties together' all the jobs involving digital resources that was previously just "unofficial parts of people's jobs," and also to plan where things go in the future. He says that a dedicated person was needed "as e-resources became more and more important." His day-to-day activities are focused on e-journals, e-books, and databases, rather than dust jackets and the Dewey Decimal System. "There's a big move to buy more e-books, driven mainly by

ww w.T h eL inc. co .uk

Profi le s

students themselves. As more students study from home, or work part time… so a lot of the demand is coming from students to make sure we have core texts available in [an] electronic format." However, he says that paper still has its place, and won't be going away: "There's a whole new set of problems with ebooks. They're not a complete solution to everything. You get rid of the problems of paper books, where you only have one copy between 20 students, because with an e-book you can have 500 students reading the same book at once." "But then copyright problems come in, and compatibility with students' own computers, so it changes the way we have to support students and the problems they might have." Currently the library has about 42,000 e-books, and access to about 45,000 e-journals. Though not an insignificant number, the amount of digital resources can't compare to the amount of traditional books held across the university campuses. "It's still dwarfed by the print collection," Paul says, which

consists of about a third of a million items. The separation between paper and digital is something that the library staff plan to bridge, though, and Paul says that some changes to the physical environment may be needed to bring this about. "The library as it's set out at the minute is very much about accessing physical resources, and what we hope we'll be able to do… is redevelop parts of the library to make much more flexible learning spaces where students can come in and use digital and paper materials, for group study, for project work, and for individual study. "One of the big changes, which will be really obvious to students and staff, is that we'll start to see changes, particularly the ground floor of this library and that's going to be quite impressively, hopefully. It's eventually going to look quite different when you come into the library here." Another priority is simply making students aware of the digital resources: "E-books are much more invisible, so one of the things we'll be trying to do is a bit of marketing to make sure the students know that these things are here." One of the things he suggests might happen is putting markers on the shelves where the paper book would go, to make students aware that there's an e-book version that they can use. The idea is to get students familiar and comfortable with the idea of electronic works, so that it becomes part of their everyday library usage. In the end, these changes may lead to even more radical ones, such as in the way library staff support students. "The big difference is at the minute a lot of it involves expecting students to come to us and the shift is we're going to try and take the library out of these four walls, and out to students. "The support that students can get inside this building might be less about a student coming to a desk and asking for help, and much more about staff in the library going round the library and seeking students out, and finding students who might be working in a group or having a particularly problem. Taking the help to the students, more than sitting behind a desk and waiting for the student to come to us."

Veni Vidi Vici: Lincoln’s Vito launches a British cuisine invasion By Shane Croucher We all know the British love pizza, lasagne and of course spag bol – but could you ever imagine the Italians tucking in to a ploughman’s lunch or a Sunday roast? Over 2000 years after Romans landed on our shores, Lincoln restaurateur Vito Cataffo is returning the favour – albeit with a friendlier agenda. He’s trying to take quality British food to his native Italians for Channel 4 show Dolce Vito: Dream Restau-

Live which had enjoyed a positive response. He pitched an idea to production company CIWC: “I told them I was developing a concept in which I would take British produce to the Italians. Of course, they thought I was mad.” However, Channel 4 didn’t think so and commissioned the programme. He’s passionate about British food and is certain he can make the Italians love it too. He blind tested British beef against German, French and Italian stock. His test subjects, six chefs and a

How to recession proof your CV By Mark Bowery

Top degree grades are no longer enough to guarantee top jobs as graduates struggle for employment. Although Britain’s economy is showing signs of recovery the job market is still flooded with university graduates. After graduating from the University of Lincoln last year, student, Dave Lee taught an online journalism course at a college in New Zealand and has since landed a job as a technology blogger for the BBC. However, this is a rare story success in his chosen career coming during the middle of one of the worst economic crises for decades. On top of this, with unall employment amongst under twenty five year olds approaching one million and a dramatic spike he in applications for university e. places this year, the job market only promises to get tougher. So t how is it possible to get the most out of your time at university and get ahead of the pack, in the race for a top job? The main advice Mr Lee gives

n–

09

is to view your experience at university as an opportunity to show your dedication and passion for your chosen career, he says “I think the key is to just cram your time with as much as you can. I was told by a lecturer to treat it literally 50/50. Spend half your time dealing with your course, the other half on extra stuff. It's the extra stuff that'll get you the job.” Obviously depending on what course you’re studying will dictate what extra curricular activity you might undertake to enhance your C.V, but there’s a multitude of opportunities supplied from within the university and around the city. The student union runs a number of clubs and societies which, while offering an excellent chance to meet people with similar interests, also demonstrates to employers qualities such as commitment and communication skills, valuable in any line of work. Further to this a part time job while studying indicates a hard working, dedicated and organised potential employee. It is important to remember though that any job while at university should not

interfere with your studies. The activity that Lee identifies as being the most influential quality for employers is getting hands on experience in your chosen industry, he explains “Work experience shows you can handle the pressure of a professional environment, and any evidence of that will be very valuable. But equally, getting involved in extra-curricular activities - like a student paper, for example - will set you out as someone with commitment, drive and a hint of entrepreneurship. Qualities that every employer needs, I think!” It’s important to remember that no matter how good you are at what you’ve chosen to do, unless you prove that to employers, that ability means nothing without some evidence to back it up. The good news is there are plenty of opportunities and advice to get the most out of your time at Lincoln. A great place to start is with the opportunities team in the main building who offer career advice or at the student union where you can sign up for volunteering placements or get involved with clubs and societies.

Students and Counsellors reassure the new intake of Freshers that with a few home comforts settling into university life should be stress free. Often it is your first experience away from home, in new surroundings and with no familiar faces around but the structure of university life brings students together. Counsellor Paul Lindemann talks about starting university and the solutions to settling in. “The feelings tend to diminish as the person becomes more connected,when the lessons start they become more focused, become connected and make friends. The transition from where they came from to feeling they have a place here is a natural process.” Student Sophie Bowler encour-

life with work and another issue that students could encounter is feeling pressured to continue a course they dislike. Paul Lindemann said, “I think it’s very important for students to do what they’re interested in. We learn better when we are interested in something.” Sometimes university isn’t what you expected because you have prepared for it for so long and it seems everybody is settling in without you. This is perfectly normal and research says that 70% of students feel homesick and with the drop out rate nothing like this figure be assured that at some point it will eventually pass. Fine Art student, Sarah Farrell, gives advice to students starting university after completing her first year “Go with an open mind and don’t worry everybody is in the same boat as you are. Just enjoy yourself but don’t forget

ages Freshers to force themselves to get involved in as much as possible and talk to everyone. “Its too easy to hide away but you need to make the effort to be more outgoing so you aren’t left feeling alone,” said Bowler. Most students feel some anxiety during fresher’s week but it is important to remember that once the routine of normal university life begins with lessons providing more structure this generally wears off. It can be tricky to balance social

about the work as that’s the reason you’ve come to university.” “Lucky for me I knew someone already before I started, so I was able to meet her flatmates and befriend them. As far as my course goes everyone was very friendly by the end of fresher’s week I felt at home,” said Farrell. There is nothing wrong with getting a little encouragement and guidance whether it is from Student Support, relatives or friends to ensure you feel at just like at home when at university.

‘You have insufficient funds’ says cashpoint By Harry Lincoln

he At a time where the most unn- likely places fall prey to fraudulent internet activities in the - UK, now is a time that we need s. to know our enemies when it g comes to consumer security. This is how I came to have my funds illegally withdrawn, got it c- sorted as quickly as possible and how you can safeguard against this. It started with an ATM refusal of ts money from my current account. I g ’s checked other ATMs, and found that e this was a recurring problem. I reok turned to my bank’s ATM and read ot the mini statement. I had lost £1700 in less than two days.

I was obliged to go to the bank in the morning and to cancel the card. On reflection, with live statement updates, the branch pulled-up information on where the funds were being drawn from. And also how it was withdrawn. I learnt that the funds had been taken by using my signature – card cloning. I was asked to fill out declaration forms stating that I had no knowledge of these transactions. As a result direct debits would be cancelled and will only be reset once the account has been cleared of all fraudulent transactions. Everything was refunded in two weeks. It’s really worth looking at a separate savings/expenses account – per-

haps not even with the same bank as you have your current account. Finally, here are a few tips to safeguard against this happening to you: 1. Keep an eye on your accounts Internet banking can be an easy and fast way to make sure nothing is happening without your knowledge; this is a free additional perk from most banks. 2. Think hard about your overdraft limit Granted, having the laxity of a large margin for unexpected expenses can be good. But if something like this does happen, minus-credit exceeding a smaller overdraft limit will make the account deny further money to be withdrawn.

3.Notify as many people and departments as possible My credit rating was said to be at risk, even though it wasn’t my fault. Letters kept coming and money was even transferred between my savings and current account to make up differences needed to make payments. Just because your branch looks into it this doesn’t mean that head office will issue warnings against you. Make sure your branch communicates with the right departments. 4. Shop safely Online and in store, shop only where you know is reputable. Don’t give out your pin, change passwords regularly and keep card cancellation numbers in your phone’s address book.
