Are you leaving the university?

End of studies, change of institution... libraries will guide you

Obtain a Quitus de bibliothèque [library discharge]

A discharge from your library, certifying that you are released from any obligation to the library: you no longer have any outstanding loans.
Quitus [Discharge] is required for the validation of your degree validation or the transfer of your registration form if you enroll in another university.
It applies to the 3 libraries of the university: no need to ask for one per library.

Please note that once the discharge has been issued, you will no longer be able to borrow from Rennes 1' libraries.

Keep coming to libraries!

Université de Rennes 1 libraries are open to all, without any need for registration. Even if you are no longer registered at the university, libraries welcome you!

Some of libraries services are freely available, without registration: come and settle down, consult books and journals in the library, connect to the wifi, ask a librarian for help and advice, etc.

Other services are available by registration only: borrowing documents, consulting online resources to which the university subscribes, etc. Please note: access to libraries during extended hours is reserved for members of Rennes universities and partner schools (UniR perimeter).

Continue your documentary search with online resources in free access

You are no longer registered at the university? This does not mean that you can no longer do research: you can search in freely accessible databases that will provide you with full-text documents, in whole or in part.


You can also install extensions, compatible with several browsers, which will redirect you to open access content (prepint or postprint author versions, open archive deposit).

Use free tools and software

Librarians recommend several tools for office automation, bibliographic reference management and thought organization.
