Library (of books, not gems) Management in Ruby

Is there a Ruby application for managing collections of books, CD’s
and “stuff” in general? I saw something similar written in Java (Data
Crow) but it seemed a bit too heavy for my tastes. Searching for
“library management” in Google gives me a bunch of links to Rubygems
and other package managers, and I don’t know what else to call it :).

Search blog entries on http://www.joelonsoftware.com

IIRC he had the same problem to manage his company’s book library,
and wanted a program to do it. He was interested in bar code scanner

  • library of congress lookup stuff, and went through a couple of options
    (including some commercial ware). I don’t know if he found a solution,
    but there may be blog comments that could direct your source.

As for specifically in Ruby, I doubt it. At the end of the day, its just
a
simple Database, you could get clever by using a web service on the
library of congress, or web scraping their search results.
