Library Retrieval System (LRS) Tours

Building a Better Library Experience

UTS Library will be hosting daily tours for UTS staff and students to view the new Library Retrieval System (LRS)

The LRS is an automated storage and retrieval facility where our low-use collection items will be sorted by size and stored in metal bins on metal shelf units. These bins and shelf units are housed in storage racks and will be retrieved automatically by means of a robotic crane.

Tours will run from 11 August to 30 September and bookings can be placed via the Library Events Calendar.
Bookings are essential and there is a limit of 10 per group.

Come along and see the impressive robotic cranes in action!

LRS Tours with vacancies: As of 8.20am Thursday, 25 September 2014

Its a shame there doesn't appear to be some weekend or after-hours tours for post grad students who work during the day. I personally would love to see the new LRS.

Agreed Adam, UTS, is there

Agreed Adam, UTS, is there any chance of a 5pm--> tour for part-time postgraduate students working full time?

I have found the uni very accommodating generally of part-time students, I would be very interested in seeing the new system in action.

I will pass on your request
