For almost 50 years Maisel lived with his family in the historic Germania Bank Building on the Bowery in lower Manhattan. In the award-winning documentary ‘Jay Myself’ from Academic Video Online, documentary filmmaker Stephen Wilkes captures his mentor’s move out of the six-story building and offers a fascinating glimpse at his eccentric collection of beautiful random objects.

Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) is a comic opera sung in Italian. It was composed in 1786 by Mozart and is one of the most frequently performed operas. The overture is well known and often played as an independent concert piece. In fact, it is one of the top 20 most-accessed scores from Alexander Street.

This performance from Academic Video Online and Opus Arte was conducted at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden by Antonio Pappano.

“Stressed brains can’t learn.”

That was the nugget of neuroscience that Jim Sporleder, principal of a high school riddled with violence, drugs and truancy, took away from ACES - the Adverse Childhood Experience Study.

Three years later, the number of fights at Lincoln Alternative High School had gone down by 75% and the graduation rate had increased five-fold.

From Academic Video Online and FILM PLATFORM, Paper Tigers is the story of how one school made such dramatic progress. Following six students over the course of a school year, viewers see Lincoln’s staff try a new approach to discipline: one based on understanding and treatment rather than judgment and suspension.

Using a combination of vérité and revealing diary cam footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest developmental science is showing: that just one caring adult can help break the cycle of adversity in a young person’s life.

This film was produced and directed by James Redford (son of Robert Redford).

“We should not be held back from pursuing our full talents because we belong to a group that has historically been the object of discrimination.”
– Ruth Bader Ginsburg

At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now.

From Academic Video Online and FILM PLATFORM, RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg’s exceptional life and career.

🏆 Winner:

• Official Selection 2018, Sundance Film Festival
• Academy Award Nominee, Best Documentary Feature

Our Story

ProQuest's Alexander Street products are curated, discipline-focused, primary-source collections, websites, and streaming media for learning and research. We’re passionate about creating landmark online resources that help scholars and students discover and learn.

Our collections deliver previously unavailable content in ways that further research and learning. Working closely with faculty, librarians, archives, and publishers, we develop our databases to the highest academic standards. We painstakingly secure copyrights, digitize the content, index the materials meticulously using semantic fields, add supporting reference and contextual material, and then publish the resulting collections on our award-winning online platform.

Our mission is to “make silent voices heard.”

Whether it’s previously unseen plays by Pulitzer Prize winners, the first available full run of an important publication such as The Black Panther Party Newspaper, or otherwise inaccessible historical archives, we love bringing otherwise “silent” and hidden gems to scholars and students. We’ve received dozens and dozens of “BEST” awards from industry publications (Library Journal and others for numerous projects in all our disciplines); organizations (e.g., History News Network for North American Women's Letters and Diaries); evaluation groups (The Charleston Advisor’s various awards); and industry watchers (e.g., EContent 100: The Companies that Matter Most in the Digital Content Industry).

Hi there, I have sent several emails enquiring about how to purchase access to Counseling & Therapy in Video: Library (especially Volume III). Please can someone get back to me? [email protected] Thank you!
Hi. I am using Alexander Street through my university and can't get the videos to play. Do you have any suggestions? I put "allow" for the Flash setting and they still don't work. I did not have this problem the last 2 years. I have Google Chrome on an Android computer. Thanks!!!!
I've never had any complaints about this company. I received my first royalty payment in August 2019. Everything was fine. And now I can not get royalties for the second half of 2019, I provided correct data to the responsible persons of the company, but when transferring money all the data were grossly distorted. That's why the money didn't reach me. On March 20, my bank sent the transfer back. Since then, Alexander Street has not transferred my money and I have not received it so far. I do not see any action on the part of the company to resolve this issue. I don't know who to contact, because those responsible for solving this issue simply ignore my emails and I have no information about the timing of the transfer. I also do not know who is to blame for this situation and who misrepresented my data. Can you hear me? As of 14:35 14 April 2020 there is still no money in my account. Can you explain how my props were grossly distorted? This could not be an accidental mistake when everything is wrong: account number, name, phone name, no email address.
