BAnQ has adopted a wide-ranging digitization program that would cover the entire published and archival documentary heritage produced in Québec since the 17th century, or of foreign origin and related to Québec. All categories of materials are included: printed and handwritten material, photographs, sound recordings and so on. BAnQ's digital collection is developing on an ongoing basis and all these resources are available free of charge.
The digitization and on-lining of these resources have been carried out in compliance with copyright law. BAnQ ensures that it has obtained the required authorizations from the rightful owners for all the works protected under the terms of the current legislation.
