Some good news about the online catalogue

Jeune femme masquée entre des rayons de livres.

Good news! In the next few days, we will carry out the trial implementation of a corrected version of the catalogue as updated by our supplier.

If the trials are conclusive, you will soon be able to use the catalogue again

Until then, 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:

We'll keep you informed of any changes in the situation.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
