The Outaouais centre has focused its development in genealogy on a close linkage with the Société de généalogie de l'Outaouais (SGO), which is housed at the centre.
In addition to ensuring the presence of a volunteer 40 hours per week, the SGO was able to obtain, for a three-year period, the Parchemin notarial data bank covering the period from 1626 to 1784.
The SGO also obtained, last fall, the digitized documents of the Drouin-Pépin fonds.
The SGO takes part in regularly updating BMD 2000.
It has numerous cemetery registers.
The Gatineau municipal library loans it the Drouin dictionaries (approximately 200 volumes). These works are available to everyone who comes to the centre
