Academic Video Online and Alexander Street Press

Academic Video Online allows users to cross-search all of the video published by Alexander Street Press. It features a single, fully integrated platform, offering access to tens of thousands of full-length streaming video titles. It contains over 500 videos on 'Business & Economics'. Virtually every video in the collection is fully transcribed in addition to being indexed for subjects, people, places, release date, language, publisher, and video type.

Alexander Street Press is a much larger collection containing over 50,000 academic videos. Not all of these are subscribed to by the Library; however if a video is not already accessible through Academic Video Online, you can ask the Library to purchase access for you.
