On the LHUP Website, on the first page of the virtual tour, there is an unidentified photo of the bell tower.  It's also visible in one of the alternating photos on the Ivy Lane page of the tour.  There is a page with two tower photos linked to the campus map (where it is #41); here is a larger version of one.
A page about the library shows part of the tower in a photo. 
From a Communications Department page, there is another good tower photo; but note the strange spelling of "carillon" in the filename for it!

Photographs of the tower, the keyboards (with Doug Gefvert) and the dedication ceremony were provided by, and are used with the permission of, Daniel Hanson, Director of Public Relations, LHUP.

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