Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

Tamil Digital Library Network


Tamil Digital Library Network (TADILNET) is an Internet based networking group of individuals and institutional representatives engaged in or interested in building digital Tamil collections. It is a voluntary forum to share information on the content of individual collections, location of primary resources, sharing of experience in Tamil digitization efforts, build common standards and protocols that lead to efficient comprehensive catalogue of e-archives, search engines etc.

Currently the TADILNET forum consists of ca. 30 individuals from many of the leading academic institutions (academicians, librarians in charge of libraries with major Tamil resource collections and software professionals interested in Tamil Digital Library development) and they come from India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Europe and North America. The group uses net-based mailing list at Yahoo groups for continuous dialogue.  Subscription is open to anyone interested in Digital Tamil Library Development.
