Thanks Ravi for sharing this. This sounds like an interesting project. Are these books coming on WikiSource as well or only digitized? It will be great if you could share more details about the entire project and how the Tamil Wikisource community is involved here in A) getting these encyclopedias relicensed B) digitizing them on Wikisource.

Best,
Subha

Subha,

Kudos for the good work.

There is some similar work undertaken by Tamil Wikipedians and we expect official confirmation to release many volumes of encyclopedias under CC license soon.

Some of the local FOSS activits including some Tamil Wikipedians are engaged in a new project called

This aims to release CC licensed contemporary works that can be read in smart phones and tablets in epub and mobi formats.
