Having trouble finding a book, preparing your research topic or accessing an online resource?
Les BU proposent une aide sur place et en ligne

On the spot

We are available for assistance during opening times. Visit the reception or information desk at your library.
We can help you to :

  • use the available tools and resources,
  • find a document on the shelves,
  • retrieve information,
  • find available documents on your chosen topic,
  • use bibliography software,
  • access an online resource.

By chat

Chat with a librarian at the bottom of our website page.

Ask a librarian a question via the chat room from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday!
You can ask for :

  • information about services and resources in the various libraries
  • help with information retrieval : how and where can I find a document? How can I find references and information about a topic? How do I use online library' resources?

Does the window bother you? You can click on "Non merci" to close it.

The chat service is provided by the member institutions of the national network, in which the university libraries of the University of Rennes participate. For more information, you can consult the charter for the chat question and answer service in French published by the network.

By email

The librarians will reply within 48 working hours maximum!
