I'm far from an expert on such matters.  But, I have heard around the 
shop here (NCSA: National Center for Supercomputing Applications) that 
Fedora provides an assumed standard, and that is worth considering.  Do 
be sure whatever you use is as widely used and interoperable as possible.

Best,

Kelly

I would use Eprints.org .  It is simple to customize(you probably  
won't need a programmer, common sense will probably do just fine),  
free, and meets the standards.

You'll need a programmer for fedora, I've not used Contentdm because  
it's not free.  I've used dspace.org software and it is pretty  
standard if labor intensive to customize.

I've never heard of stellant, but i checked it out on http://www.cmsmatrix.org/ 
  and it seems fairly normal.  If I had to choose a cms-based system,   
I'd choose drupal.   It is easy enough to customize and it has a huge  
user community which is growing in education.   It also has the  
plugins that would make a digital object repository work fairly  
easily, almost rising to the ease of eprints.org.
