Documentation Center

As part of its mandate to manage and disseminate knowledge, IQDHO compiles and records information from a broad range of sources at its Documentation Center, open to IQDHO members and clients. This information enhances the quality of the services we provide to businesses.

The IQDHO Documentation Center contains a large number of resources:

  • Over 2,000 publications
  • More than 65 journal subscriptions: see list
  • Industry data
  • Full texts and abstracts of presentations
  • Buyer guides
  • Commercial catalogues
  • Studies and reports on innovation and research and development (R&D) work

All this information is examined in detail by IQDHO’s documentalists, who identify urgent information that needs to be communicated right away as part of a watch service and longer term information to be classified in the HORTIDATA database.
