(Oct. 8, 2012) -- The UTSA Office of Information Technology has initiated a project to move email from a locally hosted application to one that is "cloud-based." Benefits of the change are that mailbox sizes will be five times larger and the Web version will look more like the desktop version and function better than the old Web version.

The process of moving UTSA mailboxes has begun and will continue through December. Before a mailbox is moved, each user will receive detailed information via email. A reminder email will be sent the day a mailbox is scheduled to be moved.

What are some of the benefits for moving email to the cloud?

  • Mailbox size will be increased from its current limit of 5GB to 25GB.
  • Improved access to your UTSA email on the Web -- it will be more functional and will look more like Outlook 2010.
  • Mac users can move to Outlook 2011.

Because of the change, a few current features will be affected once an emailbox has moved:

  • Mac users will no longer use Entourage to access UTSA email, but will use Outlook 2011 -- a more full-featured and stable email client.
  • Those who use a smartphone or other device to access UTSA email must update their device to use the new settings.

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.
