Metadata systems are considered to be a powerful and generalised mechanism for extending the properties that constitute an object and for facilitating access to information. However, there is another mechanism, linking, that can also be considered as having the ability to extend the properties of an object and provide systems and users with more useful means of accessing information. In this paper, we represent both metadata and linking as abstract models and show how the metadata model may be expressed in terms of the linking mechanism. Then we discuss the benefits of the more general model of linking.
