With Alexander Street Video, users can on a single cross-searchable platform have access to a completely integrated online repository of Alexander Street video titles that your institution subscribes to or owns. La Trobe has access to collections on anthropology, courselling and therapy, dentistry, education, health and society, nursing, rehabilitation, psychology and marriage. Most of the videos are fully transcribed in addition to being indexed for subjects, people, places, release date, language, publisher, and video type. As a result, students and scholars can combine keyword and fielded search capabilities to frame creative and highly targeted queries. We continue to add transcriptions to the videos over time. Users can also select to search a single video collection by using the dropdown menu at the top of the homepage of Alexander Street Video. Additional tools let users make custom clips, create playlists, see synchronized scrolling transcripts, share clips and playlists, view and copy clips and playlists already created, see a visual table of contents of the video for easy navigation, and other tools.
