Alexander Street Press unveiled VAST, a streaming video package for academic and public libraries. A multidisciplinary solution, VAST contains video content from Alexander Street's 21 individual collections.
Amassing content from producers like BBC and PBS, VAST's 10,000 titles are cross-searchable. Every video is indexed to allow for both general searching and advanced, in-depth searching of specific disciplines.
Discipline collections included in VAST are Business and Economics in Video, Humanities Video Online, and Politics and Current Affairs Video Online, among others. Alexander Street expects to offer 22,000 titles by 2013.
