An Award of Excellence for the Exhibition Penser! Une expérience philo

The Penser! Une expérience philo exhibition was presented with an award of excellence from the Société des musées du Québec on October 1, 2014. The mission of the exhibition, whose topic and bold approach stand out, is to introduce children ages 8 to 12 to philosophy through reasoning and questioning.

Penser! Une expérience philo was created entirely by BAnQ. It was designed, researched, scripted and edited by Isabelle Gay, Project Manager, Cultural Programming, in close collaboration with Isabelle Corriveau, Coordinator, Exhibitions, Marie-Ève Courchesne, Project Manager, Cultural Education, and Pascale Grenier, Librarian, Espace Jeunes (Children’s library) also in charge of the Centre québécois de ressources en littérature pour la jeunesse.

BAnQ collaborated with a scientific committee consisting of Michel Sasseville, Professor, Faculty of Philosophy, Université Laval, Georges Leroux, Professor Emeritus, Department of Philosophy, UQAM, and Céline Roy, Instructor for the programme Prévention de la violence et philosophie pour enfants, La Traversée.

Scenography and graphics were designed and produced by La bande à Paul design studio.

The exhibition Penser! Une expérience philo is on display at the Espace Jeunes of the Grande Bibliothèque until March 8, 2015.

Québec's Digital Cultural Strategy: BAnQ will leverage this remarkable tool to promote Québec's heritage materials

The Québec government is investing in the online world. The government's Plan culturel numérique du Québec that was unveiled today will play a key role in promoting Québec culture online. Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) has every reason to be delighted with this initiative, as releasing these funds will mean more online items for patrons to access, and a strengthening of BAnQ's already considerable digital expertise.

Already positioned as one of the major players in the digital heritage field and strongly committed to improving the quantity and variety of digital services offered to all Quebecers on its Web portal, BAnQ is pleased to have additional funds in order to, notably:

  • increase the digitization rate of its collections;
  • remodel its Web platforms to facilitate access to its digital collections (update its interfaces, adapt its sites for mobile devices and make its platforms more interactive;
  • acquire new computer equipment for the purposes of digitization, storage, etc.;
  • help maximize the presence of Québec cultural data on the Web;
  • help set up a digital creative lab for teens.

These projects are expected to move forward over the next few years.
