This paper presents a solution to resolve the problem of multimedia documents collection reorganizing. This solution is based on a documentary warehouse enriched by metadata (for each media type) elicited, modeled and structured in XML meta-documents. To homogenize these meta-document representation, we based our annotation on a document indexing and segmentation process.

The warehouse thus created is seen as the hyperbase to which the user will apply personalization and querying mechanisms. The personalization enables dynamic re-structuring and re-construction of documents answering to the user queries. This approach is based on the OOHDM methodology extension with the use of the metadata.
