(Oct. 12, 2010)--Volunteers are needed to help run a water station with fellow UTSA students and staff -- and to cheer on the numerous UTSA runners that will compete in this year's San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 14.

"We need at least 100 volunteers to help on race day, so encourage your fellow students, faculty and staff to join in as well," said Jessica Figueroa, service chair of the UTSA Honors Alliance student organization. The Honors Alliance is organizing the official UTSA water station for the second year.

UTSA's station is toward the end of the race -- mile 25 for those doing the marathon, mile 12 for the half-marathon. Parking will be provided for volunteers as well as bonus giveaways.

For details and to register as a volunteer, visit the San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon website. For more information on the UTSA station, call 210-458-7273.

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.
