Alexander Street Press Launches Two New Collections

Alexander Street Press announced the launch of two new collections: Classical Scores Library: Volume II, the first online score collection for libraries composed mostly of in-copyright classical scores from major composers; and Anthropology Online, a comprehensive resource that at completion will contain more than 100,000 pages of written ethnographies, field notes, seminal texts, memoirs, and contemporary studies from major archives around the world, many of which were previously unpublished.

Classical Scores Library: Volume II complements and expands on the Classical Scores Library with a focus on major composers not represented in the first collection; new contemporary scores by major living composers around the world; and critical editions of compositions that are lesser known but often studied. Items that are typically unavailable in print in library collections are now available online for viewing and study,including scores of many self-published composers. The collection includes composers such as Michael Tippett, Hugo Wolf, Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, Gabriel Faure, Maurice Ravel, and many others.

Classical Scores Library: Volume II is a comprehensive resource, with full scores, study scores, piano and vocal scores, and more, all available in fast-loading JPG format. Users can access full scores, go directly to individual movements, zoom in to examine specific measures and tempo markings, and print scores for personal or class study and notation. As part of Alexander Street’s Music Online suite of music reference and listening collections, Classical Scores Library: Volume II can be cross searched with other Music Online collections from a single interface.

Anthropology Online brings together works ranging from the 19th century to the present day, covering all areas of the discipline, with a special focus given to outside the developed world. Including areas such as cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, applied anthropology, archeology, and urban anthropology, this collection is the full-text equivalent to Alexander Street’s ethnographic video database, Ethnographic Video Online. As such, Anthropology Online is cross-searchable with Ethnographic Video Online.
