In this paper, we present a framework capable of supporting Rapid Information
Modelling. The management of information is done at the conceptual
level without the user having to define a data model for information organisation.
We introduce the notion of heterogeneous collections together with a
flexible notion of typing. One can easily define new typing constraints according
to user needs and integrate them into the framework. To support the processing
and querying of information, we provide algebra operations which can
be evaluated with or without type checking. An initial version of the framework
has been implemented as a web application offering flexible access to
