Terms and conditions of use

  1. General
  2. Resources accessible using a special access code


Access to online resources made available by the SCD is neither open nor free. With the signature of its President, the whole University commits to respecting the terms of full legal licences. These state, in particular, that large-volume content downloads and the use of offline readers are prohibited, as is the dissemination of copyrighted content. Any individual breaches in this regard may lead to a suspension of the online service for the entire university community.

  • I must have my Sesame account (ID and password used to access the ENT, email, etc.).
  • If I am a Rennes 1 student or staff member (including contract staff and professors emeriti), I can access most resources wherever I am (at the university, while travelling, at home).

  • If I am a temporary worker, temporary guest, retired staff member or trainee, I can access resources at the university (on all campuses and on the WiFi network).

  • If I don’t have any links with the university, I can access resources via the public workstations in the university libraries. With the exception of SciFinder, which is only available to UR1 members.

If you join the library as an external user, you will not have remote access to online resources.

Database access is provided by a reverse proxy both locally and remotely. If the "passerelle.univ-rennes1.fr" suffix is displayed in your address bar, you are recognised as coming from the University of Rennes 1.

Resources accessible using a special access code

Some resources require a special ID and password:

  • Concurrences / e-Competitions
  • E-Vidal
  • Global Retail News
  • L'information dentaire
  • Le Moniteur des pharmacies
  • Revue de gériatrie

You can find them in the ENT
Please do not disclose the codes outside of the University, as the number of simultaneous accesses is limited for some of these resources.
