Sofia is our new discovery tool

It allows users to initiate queries in their academic library’s collections. They can also extend the results to every Quebec university library, and see which items are available in each institution in real time.

Features for users:
> Single access point to find resources (books, articles, specialized resources, DVDs, etc.)
> User-friendly interface with enhanced discoverability for mobile devices
> Intuitive discovery experience
> English or French interface, as selected by the user
> Simplified and broader access to the resources of Quebec’s 18 academic libraries through shared collections (over 20 million physical items*)
> Search results clearly indicating availability in each of the libraries that hold the same resource
