Orphan Works Candidates

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.

The works linked to below were identified by the Orphan Works Project at the University of Michigan Library as orphan works candidates. This means that the U-M Library attempted to find and make contact with the copyright holder without success. The following orphan works candidates are listed with their title, author name, publisher, publication date, and date they will become an orphan work.

List of orphan works candidates

Our goal at U-M Library is to always respect the both copyright law and the wishes of copyright holders. If you are the copyright holder for a work on this list, please see the For Copyright Holders page.
