Oh, for the love of god, please don't go this route. This is why libraries
tend to be a huge mishmash of unsupported, one-off crap that some outgoing
student did for extra credit six years ago.
To ask the obvious question: You're at a real,
honest-to-god prestigious college. Why are you trolling code4lib for cheap
hosting environments? If IT won't give you a piece of a machine somewhere,
or at least set up a Mac running OSX, they're failing to support a critical
mission of the college and someone needs to be up in arms about it. If you
haven't even asked them, well, maybe you should.
