Digital copy requests must be submitted through the online reproduction request form.

Please fill in all the fields in the form. The request must include the following elements:

  • Your complete contact information (name, address and phone number)
  • Complete references of the document to be reproduced (title, author, year of publication, relevant pages, etc.), including the call number or record number
  • Type of reproduction and format
  • Purpose of the reproduction (e.g. personal use, publication, exhibition, Web site, etc.)

Please note that the quality of a digital copy may vary from one document to the next depending on the date of creation of the digital file and the condition of the original document.

BAnQ reserves the right to refuse that a document be copied if there is a risk of damaging it during the reproduction process.

For further information on document reproduction, please contact the remote reference service.

Time frame

Please note that, due to the holidays, reproduction services will be slowed down from December 17, 2018 through January 4, 2019.

During this period:

  • Urgent requests (maximum deadline of 5 business days) will not be processed;
  • Regular requests (maximum deadline of 15 business days) will be processed within 20 to 25 business days, depending on the request date.

 We apologize for any inconvenience this slowdown may cause.

Requests are processed within 15 business days from date of payment. Urgent requests are handled within 5 business days from date of payment. Cost is double the basic rate for urgent requests.

The time frame for reproducing a document is subject to change depending on the type of media, size or length of the recording, and its condition. You will be kept informed of any additional delay, if any.
