Abstract: Datalink is a new Virtual Observatory protocol designed to facilitate the publication of complex datasets. It provides a standard way to declare relationships between a primary dataset and related artifacts like files from the dataset's provenance, refined data products, logs, alternative representations, previews, generated plots, or services operating on the dataset. It defines a VOTable-based data format, a simple protocol to retrieve data in that format, and a means for embedding information on services speaking that protocol into data access services. This contribution briefly introduces datalink and describes how the server suite DaCHS lets data center operators define datalink services.
