(Jan. 7, 2010)--The University Center announces the opening of The UPS Store on the UTSA Main Campus. The store will provide a full range of packaging, shipping, mail and document services to the university community.

The store will open for the start of classes on Jan. 11 at a temporary location across from the bookstore (University Center Room 1.0.22) while its permanent space (previously occupied by Events Management and Conference Services) is being renovated.

"We are pleased to bring The UPS Store to campus," said UC Director Lowa Mwilambwe. "Having conveniently located mail and document services provided by a nationally recognized leader supports our mission of enhancing student life and providing services for the convenience of the campus community."

The UPS Store is a full-service shipping and mail location. Customers can purchase packaging materials and ship items domestically and internationally via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service. More than 600 private mailboxes also will be available for rent.

Extensive document services will be available including color copies, black-and-white copies, binding, laminating, and banner and poster printing. Additional services will include passport and ID photos, rubber stamps, greeting cards, money orders and name badges.

"We are looking forward to becoming an integral part of the university community by supporting students, faculty and staff with our leading products and services," said Larry Rogoff, San Antonio area franchisee for The UPS Store.

The UPS Store is the most recent service addition to UTSA's University Center, which includes a Frost Bank financial center, the Campus Technology Store and the UTSA Bookstore. The UC also includes brand-name eateries such as Starbucks, Panda Express, Taco Cabana (the first on any campus), Burger King and Subway. More services are on the way with a Rios Golden Cut Salon planned to open in mid-January and a Chili's Too Restaurant planned to open in February.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

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.
