For example in the help pages, the manuals, the FAQ, and some R News article in the R Help Desk.

Anyway, you simply want to say

    install.packages("lpSolve")

   install.packages("C:/Path/to/Zip/File/Package_Version.zip", repos = NULL)

to install a binary package you already got on your harddisk.
