*Links:

The IU/Bloomington Website has an excellent campus map; it would be superb if it were linked to building photos and descriptions.  Look for the "Music Building Addition" rather than "Music Annex".
There is a short page about the Music Addition carillon, with a photo of the bells.

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