Campus Delivery Service LEA

This service is available free of charge both to employees and students of the University of Stuttgart.

In order to use the service, a valid library account is required.

If you have not activated your library account yet, you can do so via the SIAM self service. There you can find the tab “Universitätsbibliothek” in your account. By ticking off the box you agree to the University Library's Terms of Use and to the transfer of your data to the University Library.

Complete articles and contributions from journals or anthologies and up to 15% of books from the holdings of the University of Stuttgart Library.

Once you have determined the data of a desired article (author, title of the article, page number, title of the book or journal, volume, year), e.g. via database search, you can search in Katalog plus for the book or journal title in which the desired article is included.

After you have found the title, select it and click on the function “Article delivery LEA”. You will be redirected to the catalog (aDIS) and have to call up the order form there via the button "Copy (LEA) of the article". For journals, please first go to the desired volume and place the order from the volume display.

You can use the button "My library account" on the homepage to find out about the status of your order.

An introduction to ordering via LEA can be found here.


Once the document is available as a link in your library account, you will be informed by email to your official email address at the University of Stuttgart. You have to retrieve the document yourself within two weeks.

The electronic documents are provided as pdf files and can be opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader. The articles can be read directly on screen or copied to the local computer and printed out.

For copyright reasons, the documents supplied may only be used for personal use (Sec. 53 Act on Copyright and Related Rights (UrhG)), including the author's own scientific research and teaching purposes (Sec. 60a Act on Copyright and Related Rights (UrhG)). This means that you may also make these files which we have provided digitally available to your students in your ILIAS events with restricted access.

Delivery time is a maximum of 2 working days.

  • Complete articles from newspapers and kiosk magazines (such as Spiegel, GeoMagazin). A maximum of 15% is allowed according to sec. 60a, par.1 Act on Copyright and Related Rights (UrhG)
