The university Website has a tiny photo of the tower on the library server.  There is a description of the instrument and a news release about its dedication (including a list of memorials and tributes); in both of these pages, the photos (which appear to be small but are actually huge) can be re-opened independently to see more detail.

A virtual tour of the main quadrangle shows the bell tower on the library, but does not work on all Web browsers.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Paccard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
