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
