(April 29, 2011)--The UTSA Student Leadership Center recently hosted the first Storytelling Luncheon to bring together students, faculty, staff and administrators in a casual atmosphere to share leadership stories. More than 40 students and seven Student Affairs administrators came to the event in the University Center, where they networked and discussed leadership ideas, experiences and challenges.

Discussion topics included the value of higher education, generational differences, leadership styles, and social capital versus the value of academics. The discussion included leadership topics in the media including the book "The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom" by Amy Chua.

Administrators attending included Gage Paine, vice president for student affairs; Kevin Price, associate vice president for student life and dean of students; John Kaulfus, associate dean of students; Marlon Anderson, director of inclusion and community engagement; Lowa Mwilambwe, University Center director; Susan Colorado-Burt, director of learning communities; and Jennifer Rames, assistant director of volunteer services.

Students facilitating discussion included Ana Navarro, Leslie Garcia, Krystal Nicholson, Lacy Guaderrama, Justina Williams and DeMarcus Lewis.

The UTSA Student Leadership Center plans to host the Storytelling Series Luncheon once each semester.

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.
