Trial access to Alexander Street Video until 30th November 2013

We have trial access to a large collection of online videos from Alexander Street Press. Eventually growing to 20,000 titles, this is a one-stop multidisciplinary resource for students and staff. It covers the following disciplines now, with more to be added as it grows:


American history; Anthropology; Area studies; Art and architecture; Business and economics; Counseling and therapy; Criminal justice; Dance; Education; Ethnic studies; Health; Humanities; LGBT studies; Opera; Philosophy; Politics; Psychology; Religion; Science; Theatre; Women’s studies; World history; World languages and literature.


Each video comes complete with keyword-searchable, synchronized transcripts. As the video plays, the transcript scrolls, and what’s being spoken is highlighted. Students and lecturers can easily make custom clips, name them, and annotate them—then place their clips into personal playlists, include them in course folders to share and post online, cite them in papers, and embed them on websites.


The resource is on the A-Z list of Online Resources on the IS website until 30th November 2013 (on campus access only). Please send any comments to Sonia Wilson,
