Mukurtu – open source archive system

This looks like something to watch. I’m looking forward to giving it a whirl:

Mukurtu (MOOK-oo-too)

1. A free and open source community archive platform that provides international standards-based content management tools adaptable to the local cultural protocols and intellectual property systems of indigenous communities, libraries, archives, and museums.

2. A flexible and robust archival platform that creates an interface between source communities and collecting institutions facilitating the exchange and circulation of collections materials, metadata, and indigenous knowledge.
