(April 6, 2010)--The University Center invites UTSA faculty and staff members to open houses at the Campus Technology Store on Wednesday, April 7 at the Main Campus and Thursday, April 8 at the Downtown Campus. Each event will feature coffee and light refreshments from 9 to 11 a.m. with giveaways every hour between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
"At the open house, we will be showing our guests how the Campus Technology Store can save them and their departments time and money as they approach the end of the academic year," said Campus Technology Store Manager Mario Carvajal. "Our staff has spent a lot of time researching what works here at UTSA and is ready to help."
The Campus Technology Store has many popular software offerings, accessories, peripherals and Apple products in stock and ready to go at the time of purchase. Other items are available within a few days, and staff will be on hand to consult departments on PC configurations and Adobe departmental licensing. All software and hardware is priced for the educational market. An onsite service area can quickly provide diagnostic and repair assistance should the need arise.
The Main Campus store is an authorized Apple Campus Store and carries a wide selection of Apple products including the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Mini, Time Capsule, iPad and all iPod models in a variety of colors and storage capacities. All Apple hardware is offered at education pricing and departments can take advantage of lower education pricing on MacBooks, MacBook Pros and Apple software.
Individual purchases of Microsoft and Adobe software require UTSA identification and can be purchased with cash, debit cards or major credit cards. Departments can pay by ProCard, purchase order or interdepartment transfer (IDT).
The Campus Technology Store is next to Starbucks in the University Center on the Main Campus and in the Durango Building on the Downtown Campus. For a listing of available products, pricing, store hours and contact information, visit the Campus Technology Store Web site.

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.
To be a premier public research university, providing access to educational excellence and preparing citizen leaders for the global environment.
We encourage an environment of dialogue and discovery, where integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration and innovation are fostered.
