INRS libraries offer a place where you can work and study. They also have more than 50,000 items available for you to borrow. Referred to collectively as the Specialized Documentation and Information Department (SDIS), the libraries serve the INRS community and certain affiliated partners, such as the Canadian Geological Survey.
SDIS has circulation and service desks at the Eau Terre Environnement Research Centre in Quebec City, the Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Centre in Laval, and the Urbanisation Culture Société Research Centre in Montreal and Quebec City.
Both the student and faculty communities, as well as INRS graduates and staff, can borrow from the common catalog of 18 Quebec university institutions under the BCI Partenariat des bibliothèques universitaires québécoises. In some cases, certain external users may borrow documents, under certain conditions.
SDIS ensures the accessibility, availability, and efficient use of information and documentation, to support instruction, research, and creation in the various INRS entities and their areas of practice.
Library users have access to all these resources and services:
