BAnQ has adopted an ambitious digitization program for the whole of the published and archival documentary heritage produced in Québec since the 17th century, or of foreign origin and related to Québec. All categories of documents are included: printed and handwritten material, photographs, sound recordings and so on. The resources are available free of charge on the Web or will be in the next few months.
The digitization and on-lining of these resources have been carried out in compliance with copyrights laws. BAnQ makes sure that it has obtained the required authorizations with the rights holders for all the works protected under the terms of the current legislation.
