The TIB places importance on strategic partnerships and worldwide networking. New and further improvements in services are developed in the context of scientific projects with libraries and research organisations. The joint aim is to optimally support scientists in their work processes, be these in teaching and research or in commerce and industry.

As an active member of several national and international organisations and federations, the TIB works on current and future developments in its fields of expertise in various committees. A strategic setting of direction has, for example, been developed in the Allianz "Digital Information" priority initiative and in the Leibniz Association working groups. Furthermore, the TIB is in demand as a competent partner in issues such as copyright law, Open Access and research data.
