search.alexanderstreet.com Interface FAQ

The Alexander Street interface is a powerful learning and research platform for our video and audio collections, and select text resources. Collections now available on the our updated interface are listed in the chart below. Other Alexander Street collections will be made available on our new interface on a rolling basis.

All permanent URLs, such as links to clips, playlists, bookmarks, and embed codes, related to the collections listed that appeared on previous versions of our platform automatically point to the new and enhanced platform.

Powerful features include:

  • Faceted browsing capabilities: Browse content with “smart facets” that change as you search, allowing you quickly to find exactly what you’re looking for. It’s as if the interface knows what you’re asking.
  • A new video player and toolbar that lets you bookmark your place in a video and choose between multiple layouts; and bit-rate streaming that automatically adjusts to the highest quality file the user’s bandwidth can support. This is all in addition to the functionality you expect from Alexander Street video: thumbnails, visual table of contents, and clip and playlist creation.
  • A waveform view on our audio player pages that lets you view the music being played and create, annotate, and share audio clips.
  • Discipline- and genre-based landing pages with featured content and editorially-curated playlists.
  • The ability to translate every page, liner note, and transcript into dozens of languages using Google Translate.
  • Tools for exporting citations in MLA, Chicago, and APA formats.
  • Most content within the video products displays alongside searchable, scrolling transcripts.

Features coming soon include:

  • Outbound discovery—your Alexander Street content will link out to select Internet archives, greatly expanding the content available to your users at no charge, and all semantically indexed to make it cross-searchable with the other Alexander Street content.
  • Fully text-searchable liner notes displayed along select albums. 
  • And more. See a full list of current and forthcoming functionality here.

When will this interface be available for my other Alexander Street collections?

We will continue to make our remaining collections available on the updated interface. We’re rolling them out on an iterative basis to allow us to respond quickly to customer needs. When we make those migrations, we’ll always provide at least a several-month window to allow you time to become comfortable with the new features.
