Things to do while the catalogue is offline - June 18

Dear Users,

Even though the online catalogue is still down, 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

Staff members at the Grande Bibliothèque service desks will be happy to search the catalogue for you.

You can also browse the stacks, speak with a librarian, use a computer station, and borrow and return materials. To locate an item or place a hold on materials:

  • Stop by the ground floor service desk
  • Call 514 873-1100, option 2  
    or 1 800 1 800 363-9028, option 2
  • Write the title of the item you are looking for in this form.

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