Changes : more open hours and loan policy

Hi everyone!

Today, we start our extended open hours at Gaspé campus to offer you more study time at our library. From now on, the library will stay open from Monday to Thursday until 6 pm!

Also, please note the changes we made in our loan policies. We considered your suggestions, and adapted our policy to grant to students longer loans for these document types : periodical (journal or magazine), DVD or VHS. They can now be loaned for five (5) days instead of only one day. Many of you thought that the delay was too short, so here you go!

Finally, the late fees have been abolished for teachers and cegep’s personnel.

With pleasure!

A new beginning

Hi everyone!

It’s my great pleasure to wish you all a warm welcome to our library at Gaspé’s campus. My name is Amélie Bigras and I am the new professional librarian.

Don’t hesitate to come by, ask me any questions if you have difficulties to find a book, a handbook or to search an article or a video in our electronic databases.

Have a nice session!

New at your library!

Welcome everyone to the fall 2017 session!

For those of you that are returning to the Cegep, you will notice that we have a new library catalogue. We are very proud to present   koha  a catalogue combining the collections of all four campuses. This means that you can find and borrow documents on a campus other than your own.

If you only want to search for items located on your own campus, simply click your library selection in the appropriate menu.

To use Koha in English, click on Languages at the top of the catalogue home page.

In the next few weeks, I will be presenting different Koha features. We are still setting up and configuring the new system, so there will be a few bugs and malfunctions at the beginning. Nevertheless, I am convinced that you will love the new catalogue and all its functionalities.

Have a great session!

Rest is better than an all-night cram session

Today, my post isn't meant to impart a great nugget of wisdom. Nor am I writing to announce exciting upcoming events. No. In this pre-final exam period, I will simply direct you to the University of Ottawa web site where they have posted an article explaining how sleep is much more beneficial than last minute cramming for exams.

All the best for your exams!
