The University Society is known for its publication of The Century Library of Music, a 20-volume collection of piano music edited by Ignace Paderewski and published around 1900-1902, of which parts were reprinted in 1956 in The International Library of Music. Other multivolume series include The World's Best Composers, edited by Victor Herbert and additional series of volumes devoted to art songs, operatic excerpts and piano music.

Most plate numbers are in the form ###-##-X.X. or ####-##-X.X. on the first page, on the subsequent pages this type is preceded by the page number and a hyphen. The plate numbers do not seem to follow a chronological order. The lay-out is characterized by a relative small music font, with the plate number on the bottom left. The title is centered in all-caps, the editor is situated on the left top corner. The large Courier-style page numbers of the collection are situated on the top. A part of the scores have a roman numeral on the lower right corner. Its function is unclear, but could designate a difficulty grading system.
