A guide to requesting books and journal articles from the Library Retrieval System (LRS) and the expected delivery times.

  3. Click 'Request from LRS'.
    Note: If the LRS item is 'In-transit' it means that it is on its way to the LRS to be stored. Once available, the 'Request from LRS' button will appear.
  4. Fill in your details, and click Request. You will be notified when the item is ready for collection.

LRS items can be picked up from Open Reserve on Level 2 of UTS Library. Items will be held for 7 days.

Note: LRS items that are 'In transit' or 'On loan" cannot be placed on hold through the Library Catalogue. You can visit the Enquiries & Loans Desk or call us on 9514 3666 to arrange a hold on that item (and if you want to cancel an LRS request).

How to request LRS journal articles

  1. Search the Library Catalogue for a journal.
  2. Select the journal.
    Select 'Request From LRS' to retrieve the entire issue. If you know which specific article you require, you can use ArticleReach to retrieve it.
