About URRSA

URRSA is a co-operative venture operated under the terms of a Memorandum of Agreement between the Flinders University Library, the University of Adelaide Library and the University of South Australia Library. The Repository provides secure, high density accommodation for lesser used volumes transferred from the three university libraries.

URRSA is located on the Flinders University campus and is managed by the Flinders University Library. The Repository has the capacity to hold up to 1.5 million volumes and is serviced by a daily courier that delivers requested items to libraries on all campuses and to other major libraries in the Adelaide metropolitan area.
