The paper presents Abstract Compound Content Model (ACCM), a generic content model which we have developed aiming to facilitate interoperability, repurposing and integration of diverse platform specific content models. Based on this model we have developed the ACCM ontology in order to turn the ACCM's elements (i.e., content units and content aggregations) into resources that can be directly accessed and thus reused. The paper also presents our current work on the implementation of an ACCM-based content management system that enables efficient storage, indexing, search and retrieval of content units as they are defined in the ACCM ontology.
