Alexander Street Press Hosts Streaming Media

Libraries have a new option for streaming their multimedia content: Alexander Street Press announced a single-platform hosting service for music and videos.

Alexander Street Press’ platform delivers more than 28,000 streaming media titles to the 4,000-plus global libraries and higher education institutions using the publisher’s interface. The platform was designed to improve how library patrons find and use video; content is searchable alongside a library’s other collections.

“We’ve had a number of requests from libraries to use [our video and listening platform] for their own content,” says Jordan White, senior product manager at Alexander Street Press. All local hosted content will include fully searchable transcripts, discovery service integration, annotation tools, and other features.

The service’s first partner, Tufts University, plans to upload and integrate its content into the new platform by the end of the year.
