What about Adobe Bridge?  I saw a demo of this last year when CS4 
debuted and it sounded like a great tool, and one I'd ignored in 
previous Adobe Creative Suites versions.  Here is a link that looks 
like it's worth exploring: 
to see if it does what you want, but perhaps others have actually 
used it for the complete purposes you outline.  Of course, unless 
your institution has a good deal with Adobe like ours does, this is 
an expensive option, so it may depend on how serious you are about 
your photographs whether you would have invested in it or not.
