Subscription Content Removal List

For Subscriptions Only. This Does Not Affect Perpetually Purchased Content.

Alexander Street provides new content to our subscription products on a regular basis. The growth is ongoing and results from specific efforts to bring you current, high-quality video and other multi-format content.

Some highlights of recent new updates include: 

  • Academic Video Online adds ~3,500 titles per year. Since July 2021 we've added content from publishers such as FILM PLATFORM, The Video Project,  The Economist, Milton H. Erickson Foundation, PESI, Inc.,  BBC Worldwide, PBS,  and more. We've also added new providers such as Encyclopedia Britannica, Vision Films, Whitefire Theatre, Chapulin Films, Salaud Morisset, and more.  If you'd like to stay up-to-date on monthly additions and deletions to the collection, see our support center Content Update Page and click 'Notify Me' to receive monthly updates.
  • Music and Dance Online has grown in the past year with scores and audio content. Additions include over 800 titles and 49,000 pages of scores and over 170 albums and 2,000 audio tracks in classical, jazz and contemporary music.
  • Theatre & Drama Premium added National Theatre Collection: Volume II providing equitable access to world class performances and exclusive unique archival material. In addition, over 3,700 pages of text have been added to Black Drama 3rd Edition, and Contemporary World Drama giving representation to historically marginalized voices.
  • Global Issues Library has added over 50,000 pages of archival content and 50 hours of video on human rights violations, revolutions, terrorism, nuclear weapons, cybersecurity, and incarceration studies. ​
  • Ethnographic Video Online, Vol IV Festivals and Archives has added over 100 hours of video this year, including student films from the Visual Anthropology program at Leiden University and African music and folklore films by ethnomusicologist Gei Zantzinger. 

New content is regularly added to Alexander Street subscriptions. However, due to the nature of subscription products and changing requests from publishing partners, titles are periodically removed from subscription products. To minimize access interruptions to users, these removals are limited to two times per year.

These changes do not impact customers who have purchased perpetual rights. If you have purchased perpetual rights to any of these titles, you can ignore this notice.

On Wednesday, January 5, 2022, we will remove a limited amount of content from the following subscription products:
