Alexander Street Performing Arts

We're so happy to announce that we've added ten new performing arts collections from Alexander Street.  These resources are provided courtesy of the California State Library. 

According to the press release from the State Library,

Every public school student and teacher, as well as every Californian with a library card, can now access over 5,000 theatre, music and dance performance videos and audio performances and over 3,000 world music albums anytime they want, online at no charge through their school district and local library. 

These video and audio recordings from the Alexander Street platform by ProQuest (part of Clarivate) ... include performances from L.A. Theatre Works, The Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, music from Smithsonian’s Folkways label, and video recordings chronicling music history and cultural change co-created by Grammy-Award winner Quincy Jones. 

“This helps California put a capital A for Arts in the online STEAM resources we’re offering public school students and teachers – and every Californian with a library card,” said California State Librarian Greg Lucas. “It’s a perfect way to celebrate National Arts and Humanities Month, except the celebrating doesn’t stop at the end of October!”
