3The Encyclopedia of Social Work in India consists of four volumes. The first three volumes containthe subject matter of social work and the fourth volume is about the institutions and organizationsrelevant to social work, welfare and development. I worked on the first three volumes only. It will bemore relevant if the institutions mentioned in the fourth volume linked with their current websites.Though the process of doing this was little bit laborious, I enjoyed it doing this for the joy andlearning it produced. I acknowledge the help of Sekar (ekalai.com) who greatly simplified the processby giving me software to convert the html files. It was he who indirectly inspired me to completethis.I knew there are several limitations in this effort. But the limitations can be easily overcome by thethose teachers and students of social work who have time, interest and access to technical as well asfinancial resources. I welcome all those who want to further add value to the encyclopedia and sharethe files in word format for easy editing and revision.
Note for the readers:
There are words missing here and there and spelling mistakes too. This happenned due toscanning and the conversion process. It needs time to rectify that.
Since the original encyclopedia had two column pages, I preferred two keep that format.This two columns format forced me to omit many tables and some diagrames due toalignment problem, which I could not handle with my word processing skills.
The navigation pane is enabled for easy refernce
