Sharing a Playlist

When you create a playlist, you can indicate who should see this playlist. Your options are:

  • Just me: This keeps your playlist private. Only you will be able to see this playlist when you are signed in to the database.
  • Everyone at my institution: This shares your playlist with anyone using the database within your college's, university's, or public library's IP range. This is a good option if you'd like to share a playlist with a class or department.
  • Everyone: This option makes your playlist public. Every user of the database will see your playlist. Alexander Street Press encourages students and scholars to share annotated playlists with other users to add context to the collection.

Remember, if you choose to share your playlist, others can only view your playlist. Only you will be able to edit it.

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.
