    A document management system?

    Has anyone here got a document management system in place in their school?

    We have roughly 90,000 files in our public area, and 300,000 in our teacher's private areas.

    And as such things can be a little hard to find at times.

    Has anyone implemented anything to ease this problem? I have been looking at the Google Appliance (the non-mini one,as the mini one has too small a capacity). Has anyone else looked into this?

    We had a play around with Knowledge Tree for a while

    http://www.knowledgetree.com/

    But this didn't result in a production system.

    Nope but thought about it.

    Quick google gives various options:

    http://www.xinco.org/ is one of them.

    Allthough I'd prefer a clientless one.

    One of our advertisers (INVU) demonstrated their document management system at the DPA seminar that DB and I were at... it was VERY nice and not as expensive as you might think!

    I believe Centerprise are their reseller.

    Ever thought of a Sharepoint Document Library? You can then search away in it

    We are just rolling out Sharepoint for better or worse. An open source one I looked at ages ago was OWL, which runs on Apache/PHP/MYSQL

    Another vote for Knowledge tree I've downloaded and installed it on an XP VM and it looks good even have active directory logins working straight out of the box.

    I'd look into achieving data once a year.

    We move all stuff over 5 years old here.

    Makes things much easier to find and backup.
