A list of over 25 free and open source digital curation, asset management & community archiving systems that may be of interest to communities (Indigenous or not) seeking to sustain and share words, images, videos, sounds, collections, etc.
These tools are free in that you can download the source files onto your computer without cost. To make them useful as tools, however, you will need to have a domain name registered and hosted with an Internet Service Provider – and in general, those do cost money. A few of the items listed below are listed “as is”, by which I mean that they may no longer be in active development or may be of limited functionality. Others, are hot off the press and highly extensible (offering plugins and modules from an active community of developers). In short – they are not all created equal.
