Conventional content management systems (CMSes) consider user management, specifically authorization to modify content objects to be orthogonal to any evolution of content within the system. This puts the burden on a system administrator or his delegates to organize an authorization scheme appropriate for the community the CMS is serving. Arguably, high quality content – especially in open access publications with little or no a priori content classification – can only be guaranteed and later sustained, if the fields of competence of authors and editors parallel the thematic aspect of the content. In this work we propose to abandon the above-mentioned line of demarcation between object authorization and object theming, and describe a framework which allows to evolve content and its ontological aspect in lockstep with content ownership.

Nowadays Topic Maps appears to be very suitable for being applied in Libraries, Archives and Museums. It provides a suitable model and mechanisms for depth indexing, classification and the implementation of FRBR, CIDOC-CRM or other conceptualizations.
