The most common scenario is: I use a direct link to my favourite resources (bookmarks, email, etc.)


Problems may arise when you use direct links to electronic resources, via bookmarks in your browser, bibliography tools, emails, etc., if the online resource URL address does not feature the passerelle.univ-rennes1.fr suffix.
Here is a simple way of adding the passerelle.univ-rennes1.fr suffix to your pages:
  1. Save the following button to your favourites (Right-click> Bookmark or Click-n-drag to the personal bar)   Authentification Rennes 1
  2. When you try to access an online article and there is no "passerelle.univ-rennes1.fr” suffix in the URL, you will receive an error message: click on the  button Authentification Rennes 1 to change the address.
  3. If you are not logged in, your University ID and password will be requested before you are redirected to the resource.

What is "passerelle.univ-rennes1.fr"?

Access to online documentation is partially centralised on the University proxy to enable off-campus access to resources and to manage, secure and control access to resources more effectively.

See the list of resources that need to pass by the proxy below.

Any links for accessing online resources must feature the passerelle.univ-rennes1.fr suffix to work.
