The collections are diverse and comprehensive and include books, musical scores, journals, sound and video recordings, and a library of solo, chamber, orchestral and choral performing materials. There is a comprehensive holding of Collected Editions, monumenta and facsimiles of the works of composers from the 12th to the 20th centuries, as well as an extensive range of microfilms of unique manuscripts and other material held in major music collections in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
The library also provides access to an extensive array of electronic resources which include databases, indexes, catalogues, audio streaming databases, journals and other electronic resources. These online materials can be accessed from within the library or from anywhere off-campus via the web.
