The subjects covered by the Library collections include religion and philosophy, history, social sciences, art and architecture, literature, education, science and medicine. The focus of the collection, however, is Islamic studies in general; Ismaili, Shi'i and Qur'anic studies; and materials covering all the Muslim civilisations, past and present, and especially the Muslim diasporas around the globe. ​​

The Library has also developed the Aga Khan Library Digital Collections platform to facilitate online access to its rare collections that comprise more than 1,500 manuscripts, out-of-print publications, archives and maps produced across the Muslim world.
