A comprehensive approach to the access of archival collections necessitates the interplay of various types of metadata standards. Each of these standards fulfills its own part within the context of a 'metadata infrastructure'. Besides this, it should be noted that present-day digital libraries are often limited to the management of mainly textual and image-based material. Archival Information Systems dealing with various media types are still very rare. There is a need for a methodology to deal with time-dependant media within an archival context. The aim of our research is to investigate and implement a number of tools supporting the content management multimedia data within digital collections. A flexible and extendible framework is proposed, based on the emerging Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS). Firstly, we will focus on the description of archival collections according to the archival mandates of provenance for the benefit of an art-historical research in an archive-theoretically correct manner. Secondly, we will examine the description tools that represent the semantics and structure of multimedia data. In this respect, an extension of the present archival metadata framework has been proposed to time-based media content delivered via standards such as the MPEG-7 multimedia content description standard.
