Electronic Scanorder Application (ESA)

The Electronic Scanorder Application (ESA) is a digitisation service provided by Bayreuth University Library for university teachers who would like to offer their students an electronic reserve shelf. ESA can be used by all employees of the university with a bt-ID. After a simple first time registration in ESA the user is offered an ESA-button in the detailed view for a publication in the Library Catalogue. With this button the user can directly place an order.

The scans will be delivered as pdf-files. They can only be downloaded from within the university network or from off campus via VPN.

Copy Right Law

For the scanning of publications protected by copyright, the legal basis of this offer is the currently valid copyright law. It is the responsibility of the lecturers to ensure that the legal copyright regulations are observed in the further distribution of the electronic documents.


If you have any questions please contact us: esa@uni-bayreuth.de.

More information on using ESA can be found in the ESA manual. (A "bt..."-identification is required!)
