I've been a FOSS enthusiast for years and have been continuously trying for ways to contribute to it. GSoC will be a great platform for me to contribute more.
This proposal is meant for Malayalagrandham Bibliography Data project. I'm planning to do it in Ruby on Rails in which I'm well versed and have more than 1 year of experience. I also have a track record of doing end-to-end hobby projects in Ruby on Rails.
Librarians should be able to update the location of the books in Malayalagrandham.
All the data in Malayalagrandham will be open to Public. But users need special permission (admin privileges) to modify the existing approved data. Application will have full support for localization using i18n libraries of Rails.
