As a research infrastructure, Érudit supports and takes part in several research and development activities
in collaboration with national and international partners.

Research Corpora

In order to enable text mining of large data sets, we have signed agreements with several major digital heritage institutions in Canada. Thousands of documents are thus available to researchers, from the collections of BAnQ, BAC/LAC, and the Québec National Assembly Library.

Services around textual data collections are offered through the Coalition Publica partnership.

Research Collaborations

We support several major research projects in the humanities and social
sciences by providing technical or strategic support for project development.
