      We have approximately 7,000 vertebrate specimens (scientific skins, taxidermied mounts, and aquatic/herps in jars) and approximately 5,000 historical negatives and prints. We do not have a reliable inventory of everything in our collection, but are using student interns to create a giant excel spreadsheet that captures all of the data from our collection.

      We are looking for a database system that can help us manage our inventory. Our ultimate goal is to take photographs of everything in our collection and allow faculty to browse and formally request teaching specimens through a web portal. Can anyone recommend a good, cheap solution?
