(Nov. 5, 2010)--The UTSA Office of Information Technology has launched the Bluebook website -- an easy-to-use resource with a wide range of information about UTSA courses, departments and faculty.

Students, parents and the general public have access to data including course information, syllabi, end-of-semester course evaluation results, faculty vitae, cost of attendance, required textbooks, work-study opportunities and more.

The new website is UTSA's response to Texas House Bill 2504, which mandates that all public universities make certain data publicly available.

"Bluebook will be invaluable resource to our students, particularly at registration time," said John Frederick, UTSA provost and vice president for academic affairs. "Students will be able to go online and on one website look up the course syllabus and the faculty member's vita, among other information. This resource will allow them to make informed decisions when they choose their classes."

"Bluebook is our one-stop public website for a variety of UTSA topics," said Ken Pierce, UTSA vice provost for information technology and chief information officer. "The information that is available on the site will be useful for students, parents, faculty, staff and the general public."
