Alexander Street Announces Winners Of 52-Collection Giveaway Free Streaming Access For One Year To A Library From Each State
(SEATTLE, WA) – Alexander Street Press (ASP) has selected the winners of its 52-collection giveaway. One qualified library was selected from the applicants of each state—plus the District of Columbia and Canada—to win a year of free streaming access to Filmakers Library Online.
Filmakers Library Online contains more than 1,000 high-quality, issue-based documentaries and independent films from around the world—over 800 hours of content in all. Library Journal named the collection a 2011 Editor’s Choice Award winner, and Booklist declared it “highly recommended.”
The diversity of content in the database makes it ideal for libraries that are new to streaming video and looking to jumpstart their collections. Content is hand-selected to meet the needs of researchers and teaching faculty in a wide variety of disciplines: from race and gender studies, international relations, and criminal justice to the environment, bioethics, psychology, and the arts.
Alexander Street’s streaming video collections deliver many benefits for libraries: unlimited simultaneous users, nothing to circulate or shelve, and comprehensive indexing and transcription that allow users to easily locate content of interest, create clips and playlist to show later, and more.
Winning libraries were chosen from qualified entrants who applied through the ASP Web site. Winners will join an advisory panel, providing key thoughts and feedback throughout the year on how video resources are being used in their libraries.
A complete list of winning libraries can be found below.
