A One-Stop, Comprehensive Catalogue
The library catalogue was named in honour of Leonardo da Vinci, a man
of science endowed with a prolific multidisciplinary genius. A reflection
of this universal man, the Léonard catalogue gives library users access
to a vast collection of documents. It offers a gateway to the world and a
chance for Longueuil library network users to develop their knowledge and
become true citizens of their time, in other words, well-informed!
From any of the Ville de Longueuil libraries or from home thanks to its website,
citizens can consult the new Léonard catalogue to look for a document
or find out whether it is available.
addition, all library card holders can request a personal identification number
(PIN) at the circulation desk of any library in the network. With this PIN,
users can access other options in the catalogue, enabling them to:
