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. 

 

BAnQ and BnF Renew their Cooperation Master Agreement

The renewal of the master agreement between Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) and Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) was ratified today during the conference of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), which is being held this year in Columbus, Ohio.

This three-year agreement provides a general framework for cooperation between the two institutions on topics concerning their respective missions and formalizes the continuation of common projects. It will be completed by annual action plans that will be defined jointly by the two organizations.
