Share this Story

(May 26, 2011)--UTSA Staff Council nominations are coming soon. Watch your email on June 6 and nominate yourself or a co-worker in your vice president's area to represent you on the UTSA Staff Council for the next two years. You can be a voice at UTSA by participating in the Staff Council nomination process.

"We are looking for dedicated staff who are able to make a two-year commitment as active Staff Council members," said Cie Gee, UTSA Staff Council chair. "The Staff Council meets once each month. Membership entitles service on at least one Staff Council committee. Members get to network with other UTSA staff, discuss important issues and participate in other activities."

The UTSA Staff Council is an advisory body through which UTSA staff members convey information and make recommendations to President Ricardo Romo regarding staff-related interests and concerns. It is charged by the UTSA president and the UT System Board of Regents with continually improving university operations and the well-being of UTSA staff.

A request for nominations will go to all benefits-eligible staff members on June 6 and will be open for approximately one week. Nominees will be contacted by Staff Council Elections Committee members once nominations close and asked to accept the nomination and responsibilities involved in being a Staff Council representative in order to have his or her name placed on the ballot. Nominees must be UTSA benefits-eligible classified or Administrative and Professional employees.

Voting for new 2011-2013 Staff Council members is scheduled for late June. New representatives will begin their two-year terms in August 2011.

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.
