The Grande Bibliothèque Hosts Launch of Consultations on How to Improve Education

On Friday, September 16, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) had the honour of hosting the launch of a series of consultations on educational success that will roll out, both in person and online, across Québec this fall. Québec Premier Philippe Couillard and Sébastien Proulx, Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports and Minister of Families, held a press conference in the Children's Library (Espace Jeunes) at the Grande Bibliothèque. Presided over by Christiane Barbe, BAnQ Chair and CEO, it took place in the presence of Hélène David, Minister responsible for Higher Education, Kathleen Weil, Minister of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusiveness, and Richard Merlini, MNA for La Prairie.

A Fruitful Partnership with the British Library and the Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie

BAnQ is delighted to announce that one of its staff members has been granted a visiting research fellowship at the Eccles Centre at the British Library (BL). Fellowship recipient Rénald Lessard, coordinator at BAnQ Québec, will spend approximately three weeks in London to conduct his research entitled ''The British commander Jeffery Amherst and the conquest of New France: The strategic value of the maps and plans of the British Library.'' 

This fellowship, which pertains to researching and highlighting holdings about the French Americas, stems from a close and dynamic collaboration between the BL, the Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie (MRIF) and BAnQ, and sparked great interest among BAnQ personnel. The proposals spanned a wide breadth of topics such as the mapping of New France by the British, Web mapping using early maps, the history of public administration under British rule, and the ethnology of Indigenous peoples based on the writings of the Jesuits.

The fellow's travel and living expenses will be jointly covered by the BL, the MRIF and BAnQ.
