We propose a framework for generating an information access space from existing knowledge repositories. Currently, vast amounts of information are being accumulated at accelerating paces in many fields. These include multimedia documents, application program and services. We need new access architecture for organizing and accessing intellectual assets. We propose the use of context as a data modelling mechanism and the construction of an interactive information access space to support users' intuitive access to large amounts of information. A context is a modular representation of information under different perspectives. A context-based information access space enables operations over contextualized objects. We describe the component-based framework and implementation of a context-based information access space.
