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 has added more than 1,500 titles so far, in 2019, from publishers such as BBC Worldwide, CNN, Dow Jones, PBS, Gravitas Ventures, Cinema Guild, Juno Films, Collective Eye Films, PACKT Publishing, Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Pragda, and more.  We’ve added 360/VR videos and launched a enhanced video interface, all to offer the best possible Academic Video Online experience!
  • Music and Dance Online has grown its audio content with 1,000 additional tracks including many contemporary world music tracks, and its scores content with 134 scores including full scores of many key works by Camille Saint-Saëns, Franz Schubert, and Jean Sibelius.
  • Environmental Issues Online added 95+ films from the Video Project providing timely coverage of critical environmental problems.

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, as perpetual rights holders are not affected.

On July 15, 2019, we will remove a limited amount of content from the following subscription products:
