Classical Scores Library, Volume I contains 400,000 pages of classical music scores, manuscripts, and previously unpublished material, allowing for the study and analysis of more than 8,000 musical scores. Users can access multiple types of electronic scores across various composers, genres, and time periods. It contains full scores, study scores, piano and vocal scores, as well as piano reductions. Alexander Street Press has rekeyed all opera, vocal, and choral texts to allow for deep searching and textual analysis.

Classical Scores Library, Volume II brings together over 200,000 pages focusing on major composers of past eras, new works by living composers, critical editions of compositions that are lesser-known but often studied, and many previously unpublished works available to scholars for the first time. 

Classical Scores Library, Volume III features modern editions of major publishers and key composers such as Elgar, De Falla, Franck, Brahms, and Handel, as well as previously unpublished scores that are now available for the first time, including the scores of many composers who self-publish.     

Classical Scores Library, Volume IV focuses on works of the 20th and 21st centuries, providing digital access to some of the most-studied works in classical repertoire and exposure to lesser-known composers. This collection will also grow to cover works by composers from regions not yet well-represented in the series, such as Latin America, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.   

Access to the collection is also available through the Music and Performing Arts interface, which allows searching across all of the Alexander Street Press music collections from one site.
