If you're comfortable using a site just for books, I've always loved LibraryThing.com. They also have a tagging mechanism that I've used to keep track of books that are loaned out - e.g. tag them "loaned out" and "loaned to X" and then you can easily look at all books in the "loaned out" tag and see who has them.

You can use OpenDB. You would need to host it yourself, but it should be easy to get running on any basic Apache+PHP capable computer. GoDaddy also offers it as an installable application on their hosting plans.

On the books side of your question. I'd strongly suggest Goodreads. I used LibraryThing for a while but the site design is not great (a bit unintuitive) so I switched to Goodreads after it was voted top of Lifehacker's Hive Five and have been very pleased with it so far.

After ranking films for a while. it will also tell you exactly how many films you've seen in your lifetime, and how much of your life you've spent watching movies.

From what I could find so far, listal.com looks pretty good and allows you to manage various media types as well as record who you loaned each item to. Edit : An answer to a question I asked reminded that you could also use GuruLib : a lot of very good features, although I don't like it's design.

There's LivingSocial. I've used their Facebook apps for music and books, but I've not gone into their site. The Facebook app has a good search so you can find all the titles by the same artist/author. It lets you rate items, add reviews and see reviews of others. It covers books, music, movies and videogames, all in one place.
