Although, Ottoman Archives consist of many important documents related to music, coming from different historical eras, very limited studies have been carried out on these documents. There are some reasons for this. First of all, the Ottoman archive has a very complicated catalogue system. Additionally, only limited documents are presented with the abstract and translation. Many documents are in closed and unabstracted cases. That’s why researchers have to know the catalogue system for finding true and reliable sources in the Ottoman archive. After a long research period for musical sources, I have learnt which catalogue titles consist of documents related to music. I will give information about different specific catalogue titles that consist documents related to music in this presentation. Additionally, I will mention important characteristics of the Catalogue system for music history researches. Keywords: Ottoman Music, Turkish Music History, Music Archives, Ottoman Music Foundations, Music in the Ottoman Court.
