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 and Demand-Driven Acquisition have been updated to include 3,900 titles from publishers such as Annenberg Learner, Shortcuts TV, Marquee Arts, Oscilloscope Pictures, PBS, Bloomberg, Royal Anthropological Institute, and many others
  • Music and Dance Online has grown its audio content with 447 albums and 7,500 tracks, and its scores content with 364 titles and 21,000 pages
  • Performance Design Archive has been enhanced with 46 new Taylor & Francis titles 
  • The Global Issues Library was enhanced with content that includes: 
    • Border and migration-related primary sources from the University of London and the National Archives in the UK 
    • Content updates on Cuba and the US-Mexico Border
    • Human rights titles from Cambridge University Press and Routledge
    • Documents related to the U.S. EPA and DDT hearing of the 1970s
    • Environmental issues- related content from Cornell University Press, Oxford University Press, Malaysia University Press, California University Press, and Princeton University Press

While we continually add content into our collections, due to the nature of subscription products and changing requests from our publishing partners, we periodically remove titles from our subscriptions. To minimize access interruptions to users, we try to limit these removals 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 January 17, 2019, we will remove a limited amount of content from the following subscription products: 

  • Academic Video Online: Premium
