[Mono-list] Accessing External Methods via Metadata Token

I was wondering if anyone could explain to me how the CLI platform of choice
goes about translating a metadata token for an method call to an external
method. I see the token points at the TypeRef table and then in turn points
at the AssemblyRef table and the entry points at the mscorlib. What I guess
I am not sure about is how the lookup inside mscorlib takes place to find
the entry point for the method being called. Any help would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks in advance.
