A wide range of services

You can take advantage of a wide range of services online and at the Grande Bibliothèque.


This page gives an overview of the library’s main digital resources. Though the interface is in French, a large amount of content is in English.

At the Grande Bibliothèque

  • Browse the stacks
  • Speak with a librarian
  • Use a computer station
  • Borrow materials... and bring back the ones you have at home for the other patrons.

To find out which services are available at the Grande Bibliothèque and in other BAnQ facilities, see the FAQ page.
