Nowadays, data can be represented and stored by using different formats
ranging from non structured data, typical of file systems, to semi-structured
data, typical of Web sources, to highly structured data, typical of relational
database systems. Therefore, the necessity arises to define new tools and
models for uniformly handling all these heterogeneous information sources.
In this paper we propose both a framework and a conceptual model which aim
at uniformly managing information sources having different nature and structure
for obtaining a global, integrated and uniform representation. We show
also how the proposed framework and the conceptual model can be useful in
many application contexts.
