We're pleased to announce that Academic Video Online: Premium from Alexander Street Press has been added to the collection!
Alexander Street Press also powers VAST, which we have subscribed to since May 2013. VAST is just a sampling of the multidisciplinary video that we now can access with our Academic Video Online: Premium subscription.
Here's how the provider describes this collection:
"Academic Video Online: Premium is Alexander Street’s most comprehensive video subscription, an ever-growing resource that comprises content from 35 full video collections and 8 bonus discipline clusters. Academic Video Online: Premium currently contains more than 34,000 full video titles (not just clips) and well over 20,000 hours of content."
Academic Video Online: Premium also has lots of tools to help with research and presentation, including:
- Mobile Access: Stream videos instantly to your mobile device.
- Transcripts: View searchable, scrolling transcripts alongside a majority of titles.
- Clipping functionality: Users can easily create, annotate, and share video clips and playlists, and can embed them in third-party sites.
- Permanent URLs: All videos, clips and playlists can be cited at permanent URLs.
- HD-quality player: A video player with a 16:9 aspect ratio that streams up to 2.5 mbps to allow for optimized high-definition viewing
- Cross-search: All video within Academic Video Online: Premium is cross-searchable through one easy-to-use portal.
