Better way to combine text and audio for archive

I am archiving as large number of poems with it's text(Unicode) and audio (mp3) into a digital collection. I want the collection to be easily search-able and browse-able based on text of poem, id3 tags, the title, author, year and other properties added during archive. And later also allow us to publish the content easily. For now I am using Google Docs Spreadsheet to store text, properties and other details of audio including the path of mp3 in my computer. But it would be better if there is other better way to do this. So, guys what do you suggest as best way we should adopt in this archiving process ? BTW: It would be better if the way is as easy as just typing the text of poem and adding mp3."

Microsoft Power Point could be what you want.
It's a presentation package where you can include text, music, pictures and video.
When done properly can run off a cd/dvd. A lot depends on exactly what you want to do.
Usually the easier you want to make it for the end user, the more work is required in preperation.
If you have Power Point (it's part MS Office) or know someone that has, try it out.

Isn't there any other way to do it in the web ? We have a different people working from different places so web would be better than Desktop.

applications are available, whether they suit your needs or budget is another story, you will need to search for yourself. I can't spend hours or days looking for you.
