Abstract: We show that the infinite-dimensional Teichmüller space of a Riemann surface whose boundary consists of $ n$ closed curves is a holomorphic fiber space over the Teichmüller space of an $ n$-punctured surface. Each fiber is a complex Banach manifold modeled on a two-dimensional extension of the universal Teichmüller space. The local model of the fiber, together with the coordinates from internal Schiffer variation, provides new holomorphic local coordinates for the infinite-dimensional Teichmüller space.
