OTürk Ottoman Documents Asset Database Project

While continuing our successful projects in digitizing classical archive studies, in the meantime we share the valuable archive studies with masses.

“OTÜRK DIGITAL” project which was created within the scope of “Islam Seljuk Ottoman and Turkish World Documentary” produced and directed by Prof. Dr. Ahmet Kala, provides more than 250,000 documents to be available for today’s researchers.

Some facts:

  • It involves the time period of 1040-1950
  • It mainly consists of the translation of Ottoman Turkish, partially Arabic and Persian archive and manuscript works.
  • It involves 3 continents and 8 geographical regions
  • It has documents related to 250 cities, 900 Muslim Judgeship-Townships
  • First document is from 1048
  • 250,000+ translations/documents are transferred to the system.

With the help of the project, OTürk Digital (OD) team loads the studies they have to the archive system and documents are subject to the word index of the archive system and are categorized for the utilization of researchers.

When researches enter into the system, they can examine the meta data by finding the documents, catalogues spot-on with the indices or smart search system and then they can add them to working folders to find them again, if they wish they can download the original document as PDF or JPEG.

In the systems with corporate and individual membership models, companies can apply collective subscription packages for their own employees. Therefore employees can reach the OD archive system on the IP system of their company or from the determined systems. OD archive system can be reached. For example, you can directly reach the OD archive from National Library systems. If they wish, corporate managers may apply authorization identification in order to limit access to a part of the archive. Individual members can buy document downloading right with their credit card and for affordable prices.
