Sumario: This article systematizes the collaborative experience between two specialized institutions, such as the School of Library and Information Science (EBCI) at the University of Costa Rica (UCR) and the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS). The experience was performed in the context of the cooperation agreement signed between the two entities, and developed through research projects within the specialized library at OTS during the years 2012 to 2014. Teachers and students of the EBCI participate in both projects as well as the professionals working in the area of Information Management at OTS. The most important result of this relationship was a mechanism that allows the exchange of experiences, transfer of knowledge and horizontal cooperation between the two organizations, which can be replicated with other internal or external institutions at the University.
