Puget Sound Images for Teaching
Supplementing ARTstor’s holdings is our own expanding collection of digital images, largely scanned from print publications. For online access go to Puget Sound Images for Teachiing. In addition you can find on the web various sources for copyright-free images. For a selection go to Other Sources
Like ARTstor, access to the Puget Sound teaching collection is restricted to campus community members, and off-campus use of this collection requires a valid Puget Sound User ID and password. Puget Sound Images for Teaching are also available (up through fall 2012) through ARTstor's Shared Shelf. Access to theses images is available to registered Puget Sound users. Follow the link on the ARTstor webpage titled University of Puget Sound Image Collection.
