[Wikihi-l] Konkani Vishwakosh Under CC-BY-SA

Nitika Tandon-3
Dear All,

Konkani Vishwakosh is now freely available to download on Goa University's website under Creative Commons License CC-BY-SA 3.0. [1]

As many of you know CIS-A2K has been following up with the University for the past couple of months to re-relase the encyclopedia under CC. Upon CIS-A2K' explicit request, Goa University has approved the re-release to make it freely available to public and thus preserve Konkani language and culture in the digital era.

This is a great achievement for the CIS-A2K Programme and we are extremely thankful to Dr. Satish Shetye (Vice-Chancellor, Goa University) for seeing the significance of growing open knowledge movement in Goa and Konkani. Thanks are due to the GU faculty, specifically Prof. Alito Sequeira; Prof. Madhavi Sardesai; Prof. Priyadarshini Tadkodkar; and Dr. Gopakumar. A special thanks goes to Wikipedians Harriet Vidyasagar, Frederick Nooronha and Seby Fernandes for their constant support.

If anyone would like to receive a copy of the Vishwakosh please send us a mail off list and we'll courier a CD your way.

Thanks
Nitika Tandon

यह अत्यन्त हर्ष का विषय है। सर्वाधिक हर्ष की बात यह है कि कोंकणी विश्वकोश
को क्रिएटिव कॉमन्स लाइसेंस के अन्तर्गत मुक्त कर दिया गया है। अवश्य ही इससे
कोंकणी भाषा के संरक्षण और संवर्धन को सही दिशा और सही गति प्राप्त होगी।

अन्य भारतीय भाषाओं के विश्वकोशों को भी इसी तरह मुक्त कराने का प्रायास किया
जाना चाहिए।
