Linking to Alexander Street Videos

SU Libraries supports several streaming video collections from Alexander Street Press (a ProQuest company).  Some examples include databases such as Education in Video, Counseling & Therapy in Video, Filmakers Library and Ethnographic Video Online.  Below is an example, using the case of a documentary from Alexander Street's Ethnographic Video Online and ethnographer, Phil Agland, covering lives of an African family in the rainforests of Cameroon.

  1. Copy the URL for the browser window for the video of interest
  2. In this case that URL is https://video-alexanderstreet-com.libezproxy2.syr.edu/watch/baka-a-cry-from-the-rainforest?context=channel:ethnographic-video-online-foundational-films and should work for on-campus as well as off-campus video access for all current SU NETID holding students, staff or faculty
  3. Alternatively, the Alexander Street database item records contain buttons labeled "cite this video." See an example depicted below from a film about urban music education and teaching of the violin to children from South Central Los Angeles.  The "cite this video" button will provide a bibliographic citation in a citation style of one's choosing and a subsequent clickable button to "copy citation."  The URLs in those citations are properly proxied for the SU subscription and can be embedded and shared, offering title level access for on-campus as well as off-campus viewing for all current SU NETID holding students, staff or faculty
