In addition to the 186 new screenplays added in this final release, American Film Scripts has a new look and feel. Head over to http://afso.alexanderstreet.com to take a look at the new interface and software enhancements. We've improved the search engine for better performance, introduced new toolbar navigation for easier browsing, added a collocation table option on the advanced searches, and kept all other functionality the same.
Subscribers will notice that the old platform will remain active until May 1, 2009, but we encourage you to get acquainted with the new interface. After that time, any bookmarks or links into any page of the collection will automatically redirect to the correct pages on the new platform.
