The NUMDAM program is a component of the World Digital Mathematics Library (WDML). The metatata description of its content is the basis for efficient navigation on the webbed WDML : of particular importance are links in both directions, from NUMDAM papers to related documents (reviews, cited articles,...) as from bibliographical databases, digital archives and preprints databases. These linkings require free metadata availability: the convenient tools (OAI server, lookup engines,...) may be further reused to merge metatada sets for building partial slices of the WDML. Current projects worked by the Cellule MathDoc of such gateways will be discussed.
