(April 16, 2012) -- As part of Earth Week, April 16-22, the UTSA student organization The Movement will host "The Green Tie Affair," a formal dinner with presentations that will spotlight the work of four green student organizations. The event is 7 p.m., Thursday, April 19 in the University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the Main Campus.

The organizations being recognized are USGBC Students, Roadrunners for Renewable Resources, The Green Society and The Movement. Proceeds from the dinner will benefit the four organizations. Representatives from each group will give presentations summarizing their environmental projects.

>> Tickets are $10 (students), $20 (faculty-staff), $25 (non-UTSA) and $175 for tables. To buy tickets or to donate, visit the UTSA Earth Week website.

"This event will be a great opportunity for UTSA students, along with departments and administrators to recognize the extra-curricular student initiatives that are in place at UTSA," said Travis Jourdan, event organizer, Student Government Association senator and member of The Movement. "These organizations have not only created awareness of sustainability but have helped make serious capital improvements and policy changes that should be recognized."

"Supporting this event not only shows your commitment to sustainability and Tier One goals at UTSA, but also demonstrates support for the students who are constructing tangible change during their free time," Jourdan said.

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.
