Omeka on my mind
I've just been looking at Omeka - an open source publishing system for museums, libraries and archives that can be used both as a database, website and online exhibition generator. Sounds interesting! I'll have to try setting it up on a server to do a test.
The software is created by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University in Virginia. This is the same organisation that produced that wonderful bibliographic tool Zotero, and who's stated aim is to "democratize history—to incorporate multiple voices, reach diverse audiences, and encourage popular participation in presenting and preserving the past".
