A digital object memory (OM) provides a continuously growing collection of data concerning some physical artifact. Data may be added either explicitly - or implicitly as a link. Such linking may affect information storage and retrieval - and thus the overall hardware and software architecture chosen for an OM implementation. As part of work-in-progress aiming at a unified Object Memory Model, we review in this article various kinds of links employed in applications incorporating important OM concepts. On top of that, we propose an (abstract) model for establishing links to information in the same memory, the one of other objects, and external information.
