Academic Video Store From Alexander Street Press Opens Its Virtual Doors

Alexander Street Press unveiled its online Academic Video Store offering academic DVDs and streaming videos for librarians and educators. The store has more than 2,500 single-title films in more than 40 disciplines, selected by a team of editorial experts.

The Academic Video Store originally launched in 2011 as a hub for streaming videos, but recently reopened as an easily searchable streaming and DVD store with more titles and a more diverse selection from Alexander Street Press’ imprints Filmakers Library, Microtraining Associates, and Asia Pacific Films. Alexander Street Press partnered with California Newsreel, TVF International, and other film distributors for extra content.

Educators who visit the site can access their streaming purchases with permanent URLs that can be embedded in online teaching tools or viewed with a web browser. Streaming titles can be shared with an unlimited number of users at the purchasing institution. “We have incredible amounts of valuable content, but prior to this launch, it was in disparate places and not always easy to navigate. Now you can purchase a stream five minutes before class and show it to your students then and there,” says marketing director Jessica Kemp.

Alexander Street Press plans to add 2,000 titles to the store in the next month, with more additions as new films are produced.
