As an archivist, this is still a very broad response.

Are you looking to manage archival collections (accessioning, arrangement
and description, producing finding aids, etc.)? If so, Archivists Toolkit
or Archon may work for you. I'm not sure what you mean by
university historical information, perhaps ready-reference type guides?
There are a plethora of web options for this. Are you looking to manage
digital assets? Then a digital repository, such as Fedora or Dspace is in

Although it's a bit out of date at this point, you may want to look at Lisa
Spiro's 2009 report, "Archival Management Software" <>. Also, check out Carol Bean's
blog, BeanWorks. She has a post about comparing digital asset managers <> (and
also has useful related links).
