(Aug. 3, 2011)--The UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives will assist with the 18th annual Project Stuff the Bus. The citywide school supplies drive sponsored by Communities In Schools-San Antonio (CIS-SA) and benefiting San Antonio's youth will be 7 a.m.-7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 5 with drop-off sites at selected area H-E-B. stores.

While local volunteers and community leaders are "stuffing" yellow school buses with school supplies, UTSA also will help the community get ready for college. The Office of P-20 Initiatives will take the UTSA Mobile Go Center to the H-E-B store at 9900 Wurzbach Rd. at Interstate 10 West.

The UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives and H-E-B continue to partner to support college-bound South Texans by providing access to the UTSA mobile computer lab and one-stop source of college knowledge. The Mobile Go Center will be staffed by UTSA representatives to help students and their families research colleges, prepare applications for admission and answer questions about financial aid forms.

CIS-SA reports that every year, too many San Antonio school children start the school year without the tools they need to succeed -- simple school supplies such as pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, crayons and more.

"We are pleased to partner with Communities In Schools, H.E.B. and our community to help students get ready for school and help students get ready for college," said Belinda Saldana, UTSA director of community outreach in the Office of P-20 Initiatives. "We invite the UTSA and San Antonio communities to contribute to this school supplies drive."

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.
