Downtown Campus Library

Located in the Buena Vista Building (BV 2.314), the Downtown Library provides the same services available at the John Peace Library (JPL) on Main Campus.

The Downtown Library houses the main collections of books and periodicals for architecture, interior design, criminal justice, public administration and social work. In addition, the Library has a core collection of books and periodicals covering most subjects, as well as a collection of DVDs and CDs.

The Library Express Delivery Service between the Downtown and Main campuses provides easy access to materials housed in the JPL. Borrowing materials from other libraries is just a click away via interlibrary loan.

The UTSA Libraries provide access to a vast number of online resources, including 345 databases, 48,000 e-journals and 976,000 e-books. UTSA students, faculty and staff can access these materials from an off-campus computer by logging in with their myUTSA ID (abc123) and password when prompted. Non-UTSA patrons can access these materials from any library computer.

The Downtown Library offers 36 desktop computers, and also has printers, media viewing equipment and a high-speed KIC scanner. Laptop computers are available for check-out from the Front Desk.

The Downtown Library is a great place to study with comfortable seating, quiet study areas, and group study rooms available for check out. Library staff are available to assist students, faculty, staff and the general public with their research needs. Tutoring is offered in the Library through our collaboration with the Tomás Rivera Center.
