Collect requested items at St Lucia libraries

From 23 July, UQ Students and Staff at St Lucia will be able to collect requested items at three libraries following the completion of our trial of a single collection point for requested items.

Collection points for requested items

From semester 2, pick up locations at St Lucia are:

Pick up locations at our non-St Lucia libraries are unaffected by this change and are available as normal.

Collecting your requested item

We will contact you by email when your item has arrived and is available for pick up. Items delivered to Dorothy Hill Engineering and Sciences Library and Architecture and music Library will take an extra working day to arrive.

Requested items

Items you have placed on hold when they're on loan or, items delivered to St Lucia:

  • from another UQ location, including the Library Warehouse 
  • from another library via a document delivery request

They do not include:

  • Fryer Library items: this material is available for viewing in the reading room and must be collected from Fryer Library, Level 4, Duhig Tower (#2)
  • Items that are on the shelf - and available for loan - at a St Lucia library

Single collection point trial concludes

As part of our trial of a single collection point for requested items at St Lucia (November 2017-July 2018), we asked for feedback from UQ Students and Staff. Thank you for your feedback!

You appreciated:

  • the ability to collect items 24/7 
  • the improved delivery time of 3 days from the UQ Library Warehouse at Gatton

However, you also requested the flexibility of pick up at other libraries around St Lucia campus. With this in mind, we are again offering other pick-up locations.
