Alexander Street MediaPlus

From the 1st September, the JISC MediaHub platform has been replaced by Alexander Street Press' MediaPlus service.

Access all video content on Alexander Street here : https://salford.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.alexanderstreet.com/

  • The content from the previous platform is gradually being loaded onto MediaPlus, starting with the most well-used content.  During the transfer of content, there is some additional content being made available.
  • World History in Video (until 30 Nov 2016) onlyis a wide-ranging collection of critically acclaimed documentaries that allow students and researchers to explore human history from the earliest civilizations to the late twentieth century. The video content offered here is truly global in scope, covering Africa and the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Oceania. Its unparalleled geographical and chronological coverage captures longer-term and multiple perspectives, so students can make connections across cultures and over time, incorporating people, places, events, and artifacts from around the world and across the centuries.
  • World Newsreels Online: 1929–1966 (until 30 Nov 2016) captures full runs of many of the key international newsreels produced during the early twentieth century. Key collections include: Universal Newsreels, Universal Studios, Les Actualites Francaises, Nippon News and The March of Time. Produced from 1929 through the early post-war period, these films provide a unique—and until now largely neglected—resource that will give scholars real insight into how people learned about and lived through the events that occurred during this period of history.
  • And always available from Alexander Street is Teachers TV from Education in Video: access to all 3,530 globally-acclaimed instructional videos produced in 2008 by the United Kingdom's Department of Education to train and develop teachers' skills through demonstrations and commentary by teachers, administrators, and other educational experts.
