The SCD is present on the University’s Rennes campuses via its three libraries —BU Beaulieu [Beaulieu Library], BU Centre [Center Library], BU Villejean Santé [Villejean Health Library]. It is also present on the remote campuses — Lannion, Saint-Brieuc and Saint-Malo.
It coordinates the work of around twenty associated libraries that contribute to the University library information system by adding to the catalogue.
It also works closely with the libraries of several higher institutions in Rennes: INSA Rennes, ENSCR, Sciences Po Rennes and ENS Rennes.

  • helps to develop scientific and technical information, particularly by producing, collecting, labelling, disseminating and archiving university work,
  • conserves and promotes documentary heritage material or academic literature,
