The Database of Latin Dictionaries is a project that has been in development for many years by the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium’ (CTLO) under the direction of Paul Tombeur.
At the moment, three dictionaries are searchable on the database:

Albert Blaise, Dictionnaire latin-français des auteurs chrétiens.
Firminus Verris Dictionarius, Dictionnaire latin-français de Firmin Le Ver, ed. by B. Merrilees and W. Edwards.
C. du Fresne ('du Cange'), Glossarium ad scriptores mediae et infimae latinitatis.

In the coming years, more and more dictionaries will be integrated:

Albert Blaise, Lexicon latinitatis medii aevi praesertim ad res ecclesiasticas investigandas pertinens / Dictionnaire latin-français des auteurs du moyen-âge.
Anonymus Montepessulanensis, Dictionarius / Le Glossaire latin-français du MS Montpellier H236.; Glossarium gallico-latinum / Le Glossaire français-latin du MS Paris lat. 7684, ed. by A. Grondeux, J. Monfrin and B. Merrilees (1998)
Lexicon Totius Latinitatis, by Forcellini, Furlanetto, Corradini and Perin (1771- 1940)
The Lewis & Short Latin Dictionary
