(July 1, 2011)--The UTSA Office of Facilities Planning and Development has announced name changes and associated building number changes and abbreviations for several facilities on the Main Campus. The names were approved by the UT System Board of Regents.

  • The new name for the laboratory complex on the west side of the Main Campus is the Science Research Laboratories.
  • University Center I and II and University Center III have been combined into one building, building number 0530, University Center (UC).
  • The North Parking Garage is now the Tobin Avenue Garage, building number 0523 (TAG).
  • The South Parking Garage and Thermal Energy Plant is now Bosque Street Garage, building number 0524 (BSG). (Bosque is pronounced "Boss-key." Bosque is the name of a river and county in Texas.)

  • The East Parking Garage now is named the Bauerle Road Garage, building number 0525 (BRG).
  • The North Paseo Building, building number 0527 (NPB)


How are places and buildings named at UT System institutions?

The UT System Board of Regents approves naming at UT System institutions.

  • Buildings can be named in honor of individuals who have made major gifts to the universities.
  • Excepting paseos, walks and paths are to be named after Texas flora.
  • Excepting existing roads and streets, new roads and streets are to be named after Texas places such as cities, counties and natural areas.
  • Names cannot duplicate the name of existing city roads or streets in order to reduce confusion and facilitate use of Internet mapping programs.
  • Texas place names cannot be used when the place was named for a person, living or deceased.
  • Garages and parking lots will be named based upon the name of the road or street from which they are accessed.

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.
