ANKOS, which has attached great importance to international solidarity with libraries in other countries, since its establishment; It has been a member of the Association of Southern European Libraries (SELL-Southern European Libraries Link) since 2001, including Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece. The SELL meeting, where regular meetings are held and views are exchanged, was held in 2009 between 18-20 May, hosted by İzmir Institute of Technology.
The European Branch of the Scientific Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC-The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), which was established in the United States in 1999 to break the monopolies of commercial publishers, to prevent price increases in scientific journals and to create a competitive environment, opened in 2002 and ANKOS Europe has supported this initiative as a member of SPARC. The open access and open archives initiative initiated by SPARC has become one of the most talked about issues in publishing and librarians around the world and is becoming increasingly common.
ANKOS is also a member of the International Library Consortium Coalition (ICOLC-International Coalition of Library Consortia) and the Electronic Resources Statistics Standards Association (COUNTER-Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources).
ANKOS supports the ULAKBİM EKUAL project domestically; Within the scope of this project, it expects the technical and financial support of ULAKBİM for the storage of electronic information, which is a temporary type of information based on the subscription model, on behalf of our entire country (e-archive) in order to become permanent. With the awareness that the storage of information is one of the most important issues waiting for a solution, under the leadership of ULAKBİM, ANKOS collaboration believes that a national e-archive structuring will be an important step for our country. Considering that today a medium-sized library has reached over 20,000 e-journals, it is impossible to depict the chaos that would result from the cessation of access to information in our country in the event of a possible international crisis.
