Project Madurai!!!

Project Madurai is an open and voluntary initiative to collect and publish free electronic editions of ancient tamil literary classics. This means either typing-in or scanning old books and archiving the text in one of the most readily accessible formats ("ETEXTS") for use on all popular computer platforms. All etexts will be distributed in both web/html and PDF formats.- Distributed through the World Wide Web servers , anyone located anywhere may download a copy for personal use or read what we publish on the internet, free of charge.

Since its launch in 1998, Project Madurai etexts are released in Tamil script form as per TSCII (Tamil Script Code for Information Interchange) encoding. Since 2004 we have started releasing etexts in Tamil unicode as well.

The project will be coordinated by a handful of volunteers, most of which have Project Madurai s as their hobby, just like you!
Anyone who would like to contribute can join this project. Simply send a note to Project Coordinators at kalyan AT geocities.com & kumar AT vt.edu

It is a great initiative and I think is managed online by Mr.Kalyan and Mr.Kumar.
Keep it up!!!

Made In Madurai appreciates you for this great effort!!!
