Hello Steven and Everyone,
Great discussion. I work with a lot of cultural heritage organizations as a
consultant. The two open source systems I support the most are:
1. Collective Access (http://collectiveaccess.org/) Robust collection
management, able to track objects, related documents, condition reports,
appraisals, storage and exhibitions, loans, scholarship. public facing
desktop and mobile apps available for creating access your collections.
2. ResourceSpace (http://www.resourcespace.com/) is less complex, quick
to set up, use when you require media management or sharing with other
internal teams like marketing, it does well integrating with a collection
management solution like C/A TMS, Emu. Also integrated with youtube, vimeo,
and social networks.
Both of these run in a LAMP environment as you would use for Wordpress or
listening / thinking / doing
