For a long time there exist good contacts between the TIB and the Grey Literature Network Service (GreyNet), which was founded in 1992. The aim of GreyNet is to facilitate dialogue, research and communication between individuals and organizations in the field of grey literature. Grey literature is literature that is difficult to obtain and not commercially available. What is new, however, is the cooperation between GreyNet and the TIB in the field of audiovisual media.
"In 2017, a conference paper and poster were presented in Rome during the Nineteenth International Conference on Grey Literature entitled “Video is the New Grey”. Up until then, this annual conference series focused on capturing and publishing its content via GreyNet’s edited proceedings and flagship journal. It was TIB’s conference paper and awarding winning poster focusing on the importance of video as an integral element of contemporary scientific outputs, which led to an agreement between GreyNet International and the TIB-AV Portal to host and publish the video presentations of its annual conference. This collection now boasts 33 published video recordings." (D. Farace, GreyNet International) https://doi.org/10.5446/39641
