after following the discussion for a while I went to my bookshelf and 
grabbed "The Oberon Companion".
Beginning with page 231 you find a description of libraries and 
dictionaries in System3.
Looks like an persitent associative array to me :-) At least sort of.
key: ARRAY OF CHAR; value: Object;

Regards, Edgar
