The biggest tech revolution of the 21st Century isn’t digital. It’s biological.

A breakthrough called CRISPR has given us unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life. It opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere and designing our own children.

From Academic Video Online and FILM PLATFORM, the award-winning documentary ‘Human Nature’ is a provocative exploration of CRISPR’s far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families it’s affecting and the bioengineers who are testing its limits.

How will this new power change our relationship with nature? What will it mean for human evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.

Faced with their own mortality, an improbable group of mostly HIV-positive young men and women broke the mold as radical warriors taking on Washington and the medical establishment. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time.

From Academic Video Online and FILM PLATFORM, the Oscar-nominated documentary “How to Survive A Plague” is the story of how activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition.

Watch a Preview of 'Mary Ainsworth: Attachment and the Growth of Love' | Academic Video Online

Mary Ainsworth (1913-1999) was a famous American Canadian developmental psychologist. She is known for her work in the development of attachment theory, which attempts to describe the dynamics of long-term and short-term interpersonal relationships between humans. Her “Strange Situation” procedure is now basic to our understanding of infant-parent interaction and the emotional development of children.

Working in close collaboration with British psychiatrist John Bowlby, Ainsworth contributed significantly to our understanding of how very early emotional experiences influence personality development across the human life span.

One of the most-watched psychology videos in Academic Video Online, “Mary Ainsworth: Attachment and the Growth of Love” takes viewers through the developmental course of attachment behaviors and the different patterns that are captured by the controlled observational techniques of the “Strange Situation.” Using archival (including the Harlow primate studies) and new film sequences, it also gives students a sense of how psychological research is conducted and used in therapeutic situations.

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).

We’re the world’s leading provider of academic streaming media to libraries. Our streaming video products range from exclusive, must-have titles (such as the Stanley Milgram video series and 60 MINUTES) to what’s become largest library-oriented video database in the world, Academic Video Online: Premium. We’ve partnered with top video producers around the world to deliver more than 60,000 video titles across all disciplines—and the list continues to grow—all running on the same high-functionality platform, with on-demand pricing, subscription options, and the ability to purchase perpetual rights to most of the content. We’ve made it easy for video to be part of the curriculum, by providing users with synchronously scrolling transcripts, indexing, clip-making, custom playlists, social media functionality, and other tools.

We’re particularly strong in the fields of counseling, anthropology, history, diversity studies, theatre, film, music, dance, news, current affairs, and the social sciences. In music and dance we provide more than 10 million streaming audio tracks, 1.3 million pages scores, and thousands of video performances, together with reference materials and primary sources.

Alexander Street collections have been innovations in the market including the creation of the first streaming audio and streaming video product available to libraries, the first full-text, authorized databases of in-copyright film scripts, and the full-text of underground comics and graphic novels, among others.

Alexander Street operations is headquartered at ProQuest's Alexandria, VA, office just outside of Washington, DC.

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.
