Quality information to support your research

All CDC resources can be accessed free of charge by Quebec’s college and Cegep personnel, college network partner organizations as well as university students and researchers interested in Quebec’s college network who reside in Quebec.


EDUQ, an open archive, the open archive of the Quebec college network, collects, retains, and disseminates documents about teaching, learning, and institutional development in Quebec’s Cegeps and colleges. The EDUQ archive replaced the CDC online catalog (Regard) as of February 2016.

With EDUQ, you can consult full-text digital resources and borrow documents. You can query the open archive by author, title, subject, date, publisher, or language. We also offer thematic and specific collections such as:

Parea reports

Pédagogie collégiale articles

AQPC symposium proceedings


CDC bulletins

Correspondance articles

EDUQ is freely accessible without an account or password (except the ebook collection).

EDUQ stores submitted documents (articles, theses, research reports, etc.) and ensures their dissemination throughout the college network. For more information, go to the Deposit Service section.

College Documentation Bulletin

Two or three times a year, the CDC publishes a bulletin to promote specific areas of its collection. For each issue, a resource person, recognized in the college network for his or her expertise in the field, is asked to select and present the resources and to write the accompanying texts.

To consult the published bulletins, go to the CDC Bulletin Collection in ÉDUQ.

To be notified of each publication of the College Documentation Bulletin, subscribe to the CDC newsletter.


ÉDUthès thesaurus

ÉDUthès is a thesaurus in the field of education. It is an organized list of controlled and standardized terms associated with educational concepts. At the CDC, using ÉDUthès fulfills the dual purpose of providing information on the topics of the text when documents are added to ÉDUQ and of refining search terms under these topics.

For more information on how to use ÉDUthès topics when conducting a search, go to the ÉDUQ Search Tips by “Subject” section in EDUQ.
