Creating a Playlist

A playlist is simply a selection of media (text, images, videos, clips, tracks, URLs) that are grouped together. You can create your own playlists, in addition to the many that are already available on the service. Any playlists you create are saved in My Playlists. You can access them whenever you log onto your personal account on our service from any location.

Creating your own playlists takes just a few clicks. When you have found the item you want, just choose to Add to Playlist. You will then be offered one of two options:

'Create a new playlist'. Type in a title for your new playlist and it will automatically be created with your chosen track as the first track.

'Select one of your current playlists'. The titles of your current playlists will be listed, and you simply click on one to add the item to that playlist.

Similarly, you can add ANY outside URL to a playlist. This could be a link to an online course syllabus, paper published on the web, or article in another database. To add outside URLs to playlists, simply copy the URL and paste into the 'URL' field in the 'add item to playlist' screen.

After you have added to a playlist, you can choose to view that playlist, or continue browsing the database.

Remember to sign in or establish a profile (in the upper right of all pages) to save your playlists from session to session.

Admin Alert: Our Platforms Are Now Updated with HTTPS

This past summer, Alexander Street began supporting HTTPS on its platforms (in addition to HTTP) to strengthen security and privacy of your information.

On January 2, 2018, all Alexander Street platforms will permanently transition from HTTP to HTTPS. Existing HTTP links will redirect to HTTPS when the transition occurs. Organizations that use proxies to access Alexander Street platforms will need to update links and certificates to support HTTPS.

This support article shows how to complete changes in proxy servers and provides answers to common questions. Even if you don't use proxies, you'll want to review and convert links to their HTTPS versions. (Note: Access to your Alexander Street content has not been impacted even if you haven't yet made the switch.)
Links will redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for some time to come, but we encourage you to do this important work today if you haven't already.
