The objective of the work was to propose a specification for accessing information in an information bearing objects (document) in a multimedia environment for its reuse. The model is associated to information system development. Forging this specification of information access is expected to provide a base for programmable methodology for computer programmer in accessing a wide range of information in a consistent manner. For example, it was conceived to provide a base to address an information space with specific parameters. It is meant to provide methodology of programming such as events, methods and properties for such space. The conception is meant not only to create associated programming methodology but storage standards emanating from multimedia documents. The work identified four parameters of information bearing objects: Content, Reference, Annotation and Support. These parameters were used to propose methodology of information representation associated to specific domain. The detailed parameters were explained with examples and prototype.
