(May 22, 2012) -- UTSA is one of three finalists in this year's Marketing Team of the Year Award (MTOYA), it was announced by the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA), sponsored by row27. The nomination is for the work of the UTSA's Football Gameday Committee, which helped plan and coordinate activities and marketing for UTSA's inaugural football season.

The winner will be announced during the kickoff session at the 21st annual NACMA Convention, June 25-28 in Dallas, Texas. The other two finalists are California State University, Bakersfield and Iowa State University.

UTSA set NCAA football opening-season records with opening-game attendance of 56,743 and average home-game attendance of 35,521.

"When the Football Gameday Committee started meeting over two years ago, our goal was to provide a Tier-One football experience for all UTSA students, faculty, staff, alumni and the greater San Antonio community," said John Kaulfus, UTSA associate dean of students and committee chair. "We feel we accomplished that goal and set two national records in the process. Being a finalist for this award is icing on the cake. It is always nice to recognized for your efforts."

"It's an honor to have made it this far," said Jim Goodman, UTSA associate athletics director for marketing. "To be a finalist is a testament to the collaboration and hard work of many departments of UTSA. It says volumes about the university leadership, the coaches, our students, the business community, the leadership of the city and the sports fans of San Antonio."

In its inaugural year, there were 16 nominations for the MTOYA, spanning FBS (7), FCS (5), Division I-AAA (1) and non-Division I institutions (3). It was created to show the impact of a marketing team not only on the athletics department, but also on the campus and surrounding communities.

"We are very pleased with initial response to the MTOYA and had some very impressive candidates, but these three finalists really stood out," said NACMA President Jamie DiLoreto, associate athletics director of external operations at Boston College. "All nominations exemplified the group efforts required to be successful in collegiate marketing which is something all should be proud of. We hope the submissions continue to grow throughout the years, as the completed nomination would double as a valuable piece to summarize the collaborative successes of your department and present to your athletics director."

Award recipients will receive the prestigious NACMA MTOYA Trophy, which will be presented at the NACDA Learfield Sports Directors' Cup Awards luncheon on Tuesday, June 26 in Dallas. The finalists' submissions will be posted on the NACMA Online Library for members to view. The selection committee was made up of NACMA past presidents, as well as two NACDA past presidents.

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.
