Alexander Street Debuts New Platform Design

August 18, 2015

(Alexandria, VA)--Alexander Street, a producer of digital content collections for academic and public libraries, recently announced a redesign of its proprietary video, audio, and text distribution platform. The new interface is intended to be more user-friendly and visually appealing than its previous incarnations, featuring: 

  • More intuitive search, browse, video, and audio pages to help patrons find content faster
  • Easily accessible instructional videos to get patrons up and running and increase usage
  • More prominent related items to provide additional, relevant content to patrons
  • Alternative screen layouts to improve the viewing experience
  • A more mobile-friendly and responsive design, for easy viewing on any device or screen resolution
The updated design also features more continuity when switching between video, audio, and text formats. Users of mixed-media playlists will now have a much smother experience when moving between content types.

Ben Jones, Platform Manager for Alexander Street, said, "The aim of the new design is to make our platform as visually attractive to users as it is feature-rich. As a result, we aren't requiring our users to re-learn how to use the platform again, it all works the same. It's just more pleasing on the eye and easier to use."

Librarians and faculty can experience the new platform with a free 30-day trial to any of the more than 135 collections Alexander Street offers by visiting
