New academic collections from Alexander Street Press

(10 June 2014, Alexandria, VA)  Powerful new online academic collections are now available from Alexander Street Press in the fields of international business, human resource management, counseling and therapy, and Asian film.

The two newest resources in the Business division—International Business Online and Human Resource Management Onlineare available as stand-alone resources or as part of the 360-degree learning solution Business Education Complete Online. The collections provide a thoughtful mix of applied content, curated by experts and carefully aligned to common syllabi in HR and international business.

Each individual business database is growing to comprise 4,000 primary source documents, including corporate training videos, instructional films, case studies, text book chapters, research reports, sample business documents, and self-assessments. Materials come from the top organizations in their respective fields including Atma Global, the Thunderbird School of Management, the Society of Human Resource Management, the Kellogg School of Management, and Seven Dimensions.

“These resources have the power to change the way people in business programs teach and learn,” said David Parker, business publisher at Alexander Street Press. “When you have the best publishers in the industry all together at your fingertips, and the advanced features to share and remix that information, there’s no limit to what you can do.”

The new volume Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts: Volume II builds upon the success of Volume I, which Library Journal named a 2011 Best Niche Product. The volume’s 4,000 authentic transcripts give researchers and therapists-in-training the opportunity to examine the skills and approaches of experienced professionals in real therapy settings. All sessions featured in Volume II were recorded in 2012 or later, so users can rely on the collection to provide the most accurate, up-to-date look at the realities of the counseling field.

“Records of therapy experiences are often tricky to find, forcing researchers to rely on incomplete, sporadic excerpts,” said Elizabeth Robey, counseling editor at Alexander Street Press. “The transcripts in this collection will open gateways for researchers to make reliable, real-life observations and draw empirical, data-driven conclusions about the therapy process.”

Also just launched, Asian Film Online: Volume II builds upon the acclaimed first volume to provide 500 hours of feature films, documentaries, and shorts capturing authentic Asian voices. The second volume features films from 70 countries across Asia—including in-depth coverage of Turkey, Hong Kong, Afghanistan, and Vietnam—that bring the vibrancy of each culture to life.

Alexander Street Press’s four newest collections are available to libraries worldwide via annual subscription or one-time purchase. No special setup or software is required—all you need is an Internet browser. For more information or to request a trial or price quote, email
