We need your contributions to a book marking DMU's 150th anniversary

We need your contributions to a book being published to celebrate DMU's 150th anniversary.

150 Objects, 150 Stories will feature items from our university collections as well as outstanding examples of student work, staff research and captured memories.


We want the book to showcase the very best of the university and represent every department as a memento of the people who have made DMU what it is today.

Colleagues in DMU Library and Learning Services are putting together the book and will be featuring photographs alongside quotes or short captions explaining each object.

Examples of objects that can be included are:

  • Research
  • Outstanding student work – can be anything from fashion to artwork, a photograph of a memorable event 
  • Notable alumni
  • Key individuals
  • Teaching materials
  • Your favourite memories
  • Buildings

The deadline for submitting your idea is March 28 and you will be notified by May 4 whether it will be included in the book.


Send an email to Elizabeth Wheelband, Heritage Centre curator, with the following details:
