Sound Ideas represents the scholarship and creative works of the faculty, staff and students of the University of Puget Sound. Sound Ideas, organized and made accessible by Collins Memorial Library, demonstrates our institutional commitment to helping enrich the global academic community through sharing and collaboration.
As the University's institutional repository, Sound Ideas provides a space to openly share your research. Faculty members who are unsure about what a publisher's license permits in relation to posting work on personal websites or institutional repositories can contact their liaison librarian for a consultation.
In addition to acting as a repository for previously published faculty work, Sound Ideas also hosts journals, conference proceedings, student research, and more.
