Description The music inventory, as a specific type of administrative document, is one of the most important kinds of sources for music historiography. Although an inventory does not prove that the music it lists was really performed, it still offers a broad range of information, and is therefore of high value. Inventories offer not only rare (sometimes even unique) and multilaterally exploitable bibliographic data, but also record the distribution of a certain type of repertoire and its transformation across decades. A whole collection of inventories from a given time and geographic region is even more valuable. This paper describes how the primary phase of research can be enlarged, widening the scope of the research to include late medieval sources. The paper also discusses the role of liturgical books in inventories, mentions some types or collections of archival sources which have not yet been taken into consideration (church inventories from the archival collection of the Archdioecese of Prague), and discusses the issue of estate inventories from the Czech lands in the early modern period.
