Software for Local History Museum Library

I am a volunteer librarian at a designated  Historic Site that has a very small specialized library devoted to local history. It includes accessioned historic photographs , a vertical file of newspaper clippngs and other ephemera plus  a  small accessioned collection (about  1500 volumes) of various non-fiction items relating to the local history of the Township. The cataloguing software we have been using is no longer satisfactory and we need some guidance in pricing other software that we could use for our specialized needs. So far we only know of the huge program used at the public library which would cost about $25,000.  which represents   almost our entire operating budget for  several years.  If anyone knows of a commercial software program we might be able to use, I would really appreciate hearing about it.  A shareware program  would be fine too.  Thanks for your help.

Try the Capterra site it lists many small business software with ratings.   I saw many options that might be a good fit for you.
