Q: Do I need to take any action to use the new interface?
A: No! We’ll take care of everything! When we complete the redirect in early July 2019, we will redirect MARC links to our new interface, and discovery layers like Summon and Primo will auto-redirect as well. Customers should update their LibGuides and links in A-Z lists, whenever convenient, to ensure all points of access are redirecting to the new interface.
Q: What about my Proxy Stanza?
A: There's no need to wait! Add your Proxy Stanza now.
Q: Can I get a demo of the new video interface?
A: Yes! Submit this form and we'll contact you to set up a time.
Q: I’d like to start my new video subscriptions in the new interface. Can I get access now?
A: From now until mid-June, dual access on both interfaces will be available to make the transition simple for you and your patrons. Our automatic redirect will occur in early July 2019 to provide a minimal disruption to access. We will redirect MARC links and discovery layers like Summon and Primo to the new interface automatically. In the meantime, if you'd like to enjoy the new platform, please do at https://video.alexanderstreet.com.
Q: If I have a multimedia product (text and video) like Social Work Online or Engineering Case Studies Online, how does this new interface affect my experience?
A: Those products will still be available on our current interface (https://search.alexanderstreet.com) and all existing product landing pages are not changing. Video from multimedia products will be available in both interfaces. Click here to see a listing of all multimedia products available.
