Levine participated this week in a Washington, D.C., roundtable discussion hosted by the Copyright Office on mass digitization policy and the issue of "orphan works." Levine said many historic copyrighted works would be lost without libraries working hard to create depositories for digitized works. The Copyright Office has urged Congress to consider updating U.S. copyright laws. (Photo by Mike Waring, Washington Office)

This bronze mortar, one of four captured guns given to the State of Michigan, was obtained by the Class of 1899 as a gift to the university to serve as a memorial to U-M men who fought in the Spanish-American War. It sits on the west side of Hatcher Library South. The Record periodically highlights pieces of public art at U-M. Learn more about this piece, or browse an online collection of public artworks.
