Alexander Street Press Jazzes Up Its Collections

Alexander Street Press (http://alexanderstreet.com) announced that its suite of Music Online streaming audio collections will triple in size over the next 9 months, growing from a current total of more than 250,000 recordings to more than 750,000 by the end of the year. In 2011, Alexander Street's plan is for Music Online to hit the milestone of 1 million recordings. The company also promises no price increases.

Individual streaming collections in Alexander Street's Music Online suite that will double or triple in size include Classical Music Library, Jazz Music Library, American Song, and Contemporary World Music. Libraries that subscribe to the entire suite of Music Online listening collections will have access to an additional 140,000 popular music recordings. The publisher also announced that recording stream quality will improve to 320Kbps, and that, soon, listening collections will be accessible via handheld mobile devices. None of these enhancements will result in a price increase. New, lower price points are available for Jazz Music Library, American Song, and Contemporary World Music, and all new subscriptions to these collections will come with unlimited access.

In partnership with the State University of New York-Binghamton's Center for the Historical Study of Women and Gender, Alexander Street also announced that the online resource Women and Social Movements in the United States 1600-2000, Scholar's Edition, will be freely accessible for the month of March so that all librarians, students, instructors, and scholars can explore the site's rich collection of primary materials and teaching tools without passwords or fees (http://wass.alexanderstreet.com).

Alexander Street Press is an electronic publisher of online collections in the humanities, social sciences, performing arts, and music.
