(Nov. 12, 2009)--The UTSA Musicians Organization for Business (MOB) will host a rare insider's look at the music industry when Judy Libow, former vice president of radio promotions for Atlantic Records, and country musician David Bradley speak to the group at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 17 in the Arts Building Choral Hall (2.03.22) on the UTSA Main Campus. MOB is open to all students interested in learning about the art of music promotion in San Antonio, regardless of their musical abilities.
"One of the most important things for students in the Music Marketing program is the chance to meet and work with professionals in the music and fine arts businesses," said Matthew Dunne, MOB faculty adviser and coordinator of the UTSA Music Marketing program. "We're extremely fortunate to have Judy Libow, who was an important leader in the recording industry when it was at its peak, and continues to be a pioneer in artist development."
During her 16 years at Atlantic Records, Libow was instrumental in developing and expanding the careers of some of the biggest musical artists including Led Zeppelin; AC/DC; Genesis; Crosby, Stills and Nash; Yes; INXS; Bon Jovi; Foreigner; Phil Collins and Robert Plant.
In 2007, she started Libow Unlimited to include personal artist management. Her latest discovery, David Bradley, a singer-songwriter from the United Kingdom, recorded his latest album, "Songs From A Dirt Road," in Russia and London and had the production work done in the famed Abbey Road Studios.
Bradley will perform at the University Center paseo at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov 18 as part of UTSA's "Celebrate UTSA! All Different. All Roadrunners" special event. Earlier in the day, Bradley will perform at a luncheon for soldiers and their families at the Center for Wounded Warriors. On Tuesday, Nov. 17 Bradley will be a musical guest on KABB-TV's "Fox News First in the Morning" at 8:40 a.m.
"Celebrate UTSA! All Different. All Roadrunners" is set for 5-8 p.m., Nov. 18. Hosted by the UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center, there will be performers, readings and speeches, information booths, ethnic foods, prizes and give-aways. For more information, call (210) 458-4770.

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.
At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.
Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.
With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.
Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As an institution of access and excellence, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources as well as a catalyst for socioeconomic development and the commercialization of intellectual property - for Texas, the nation and the world.
