Composition and Creative Music Technology Scores

Classical Scores Llibrary and HathiTrust offer access to many compositions online. Explore the selections below. 

Study scores are full scores in miniature and contain every part, in one score, for each instrument --- very useful for reading the music while you are listening to it. For example:
Music for 18 Musicians by Steve Reich
There is also a print copy which can be found in the score section at S780 R347 20/M

You can access e-scores on Classical Scores Library which has a filter for Publishers. Search under Australian Music Centre and Wirripang.

Many contemporary scores can be found on composers websites.
