(May 18, 2011)--The UTSA Downtown Campus library is seeing improvements to modernize the space and enhance services for the UTSA community. With the project close to completion, the library will remain open during regular hours, and patrons will still be able to access all materials through a paging system.

Based on student input, the renovation project includes these components:

  • Thorough overhaul of shelving arrangement, improving access to items in the collection with a more intuitive flow of materials
  • Reconfigured floor plan to increase the quality and quantity of study spaces -- seating will be arranged to take advantage of light from the large bay windows, new furniture integrated to create 50 additional study seats
  • Conversion of the atrium into a quiet-study area
  • Display area for DVDs and other items in the media collection
  • Display area for newly introduced popular reading collection
  • New study tables wired for power
  • New furniture for group study rooms

Though some construction noise is part of the work, the project was timed to minimize the impact on students.
