(Oct. 6, 2011) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio and the BKD LLP San Antonio office announce the appointment of J. Randy Vogel as president of the UTSA Alumni Association. A 1979 UTSA graduate and former treasurer of the UTSA Alumni Association, Vogel is an audit partner of BKD San Antonio, the 10th largest CPA and advisory firm in the United States.

"I am thrilled with the appointment of Randy Vogel as president of the Alumni Association," said Jim Mickey '78, UTSA associate vice president for alumni programs and marketing. "He brings with him an inherent sense of leadership as well as an unwavering affinity for UTSA. I could not be more satisfied with this appointment and look forward to a bright future for the Alumni Association with Randy as president."

"This is a huge honor for Randy," said Denise A. Green, managing partner of the BKD LLP San Antonio office. "He has a proven track record for leadership and is a steadfast and loyal supporter of UTSA."

"This is a great time to be a Roadrunner," said Vogel. "UTSA is on path to becoming a Tier One university, football has started with a flying success and we have enrolled more than 30,000 students for our fall semester. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the Alumni Association and its continued growth.

"During 2011, the UTSA Alumni Association grew its endowment to over $1 million, and we would like to continue that trend. This enabled us to award a record number of scholarships in 2011-2012. With our current board members and the university's support, I believe that our goal for continued endowment growth is achievable."

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.
