(Nov. 16, 2010)--Providing permit and hourly parking for students, faculty, staff and visitors, the East Parking Garage on the UTSA Main Campus is expected to be open for the fall semester in 2012. It will be constructed on a portion of parking lot 4 east of the Business Building and adjacent to the Main Building.

Changes to current surface parking are necessary to accommodate construction of the garage. As shown below, Faculty/Staff "A" and "B" spaces will be added in lot 8 to accommodate demand. No Faculty/Staff "B" spaces will remain in lots 3 and 4, and many Faculty/Staff "A" spaces also will be relocated from lot 4 to lot 8. The number of Faculty/Staff Reserved spaces in lots 3 and 4 will remain approximately the same.

Access to remaining parking in lot 4 from UTSA Circle in front of the Main Building will remain open during most of the construction period. James Bauerle Road also will be open during construction to allow additional access to parking lot 4 from the south. However, there will be at least two periods during construction when access from UTSA Circle will be closed and the only access to parking in lot 4 will be from James Bauerle Road.

Disabled spaces will be added soon in lot 4 on the south side of the Main Building, and additional disabled spaces will open south of the North Parking Garage on completion of the North Paseo Building in summer 2011.

To mitigate the impact on students who park in Faculty/Staff "B" spaces in the evening, Business Auxiliary Services expects to allow students to park in Faculty/Staff "A" spaces in lots 3 and 4 only during evening hours during the construction period. Overall, there will be about 5 percent (300) fewer student parking spaces on the Main Campus during this time.

"This is an important project that will increase the range of convenient parking options, add a significant number of parking spaces on the Main Campus and contribute to moving UTSA to the next level," said Shelley Deats, assistant director of parking services.

UTSA Business Auxiliary Services plans an extensive awareness campaign that will include FAQs, news releases and other informational items.

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.
