    Default Suggestions for (curatorial) database manager

    Hello.

    I'm helping a curator set up a system to organize gallery collections records, records of artists' works, exhibitions and publications, whether works are on loan, and accompanying photos/videos. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for software I should investigate.

    Thanks in advance!

    The standard way in Linux is to use mysql as the backend and write a frontend, for example, in PHP, to suit the user's needs. There is very little vertically integrated software compared with Windows because most users are sufficiently technically competent to write their own frontends.

    Mysql can store images as well as text; so it is probably as good a backend as you will need.
