Abstract: The Virtual Observatory standard Datalink facilitates the efficient dissemination of complex datasets consisting of multiple artifacts like science data, calibration files, observation logs, associate plots. It also supports the association of server-side preprocessing services (e.g., cutouts, rebinning). Such machine-readable declarations can save large amounts of unneccessary traffic in particular when doing automated processing of multiple, diverse datasets. They also mesh nicely with the focus of the astropy-affiliated package pyVO. We have therefore added support for datalink services and documents to pyVO. This contribution will briefly discuss the compact API we have designed as the glue between user code and datalink.
