Asia Pacific | Alexander Street

Asia Pacific

The Asia Pacific region is arguably the world’s most diverse: rich in history, contrast and culture, yet forward-thinking and fast-moving in its contributions to the academic community. At Alexander Street we are committed to making the previously silent voices of the region heard, and to support libraries and institutions in their research requirements from both a global and local perspective.

In addition to the curated content from various sources, Microtraining Associates, an Alexander Street imprint, has produced a number of original videos to meet the need for social work training videos on essential issues. Supporting text content expands upon the concepts taught across the social work curriculum.
