|Project status update, July 2012: The process of identifying orphan works from the specified period (that is, works published in the US between 1923-1963) continues. There are no plans to provide access to these works.|
In the interest of transparency and good faith, we will post as much of the project's internal documentation as appropriate on this page. In the future we hope to replicate this project in other institutions.
The process to identify possible orphans is outlined below in the Work Flow graphic.
