Here's an interesting thing which I found via the Material World blog. The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge have just launched their new collections database called BLOBJECTS.

From the website:

BLOBGECTS is an innovative access system to the collections of the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. BLOBGECTS is based on a weblog where the blog entries are objects in the Museum's collections. This allows the visitor to search, comment, link via tags or RSS to any object or any search.

You can search for objects, photographs and documents - and it looks like the museum has also provided archive material on its own development via the database as well.
