This web page provides access to some of the Tamil lexicons prepared by the Institute of Indology and Tamil Studies, Cologne University.

The data is made available to scholars and students in two forms. The first form is that of scanned images of the works, which provides a convenient substitute to the physical books. The second form is a digitization of the scanned images, which permits computer-aided analyses and displays of the work.
