Research and development at TIB

As a research library, the TIB conducts applied research and development in order to generate new services and optimize existing ones. The central aim of our research is to further expand our role as a German information centre for the digitisation of science and technology.

Data Science & Digital Libraries

We develop methods and techniques for the semantic networking of data, information and knowledge. More

Visual Analytics

We work on the visualization of data and the interpretation of visual data. More

Scientific Data Management

We explore how large-scaled, heterogeneous data can be processed and analyzed in a decentralized, yet semantically networked manner. More

Open Science

In dialogue with scientific and library communities, we develop new ideas, strategies, working methods and tools in the field of Science 2.0. More

Non-textual materials

We are working on analysis methods, the collection and provision of visual media and the referencing and provision of infrastructure for data collection. More

Joint Lab

Within the framework of a joint lab, we conduct research in the fields of data science and open knowledge together with Leibniz Universität Hannover and the L3S research centre.
