In this paper, we present the development of an advanced open source multi-lingual cooperative portal
system (ASPICO) dedicated to semantic management, and to cooperative exchange for research and education
purpose on digital cultural projects. Advantages of using ASPICO include greater flexibility for digital resource
management, generic and systematic ontology-based metadata management, and better semantic access and
delivery based on an innovative Information Modeling for Adaptive Management (IMAM).
