Information Today, Inc.'s news bureau chief Paula Hane posted a story January 20 on interesting activities and plans at Alexander Street Video, including acquisition of a distributor of documentary films, plans for an online collection of streaming video developed for teacher training and development, and more. From her story:
Alexander Street Press doesn't act like a company struggling in a tough content market and dealing with library budget cuts. At the recent ALA Midwinter meeting, the company held its annual customer breakfast for an overflowing room of some 500 people-its largest turnout ever. Stephen Rhind-Tutt, founder and president, told me the company had a "pretty good 2010 despite the recession." Much of its success is due to its rapidly growing streaming media collections. It plans to release three major new video products for libraries in early 2011.
