Alexander Street Press (ASP) has become a leader in providing libraries and institutions access to streaming video and multimedia content. Since 2006, their offerings of online and streaming video databases have grown quickly.1 Recently, they released Silent Film Online (SFO), a collection of silent films, clips, trailers, and documentaries about filmmaking during the silent film era. ASP pricing is average for this content, and flexible, based on type of institution, budget, and FTE. Annual subscription or one time purchase of perpetual rights are options. Like other ASP online video databases, functionality is high. ASP is currently in beta with a new interface, which will be rolled out permanently spring 2014. This review is based on the new interface2 and is highly recommended to institutions with film studies and related programs.
