(Oct. 30, 2012) -- One hundred twelve UTSA students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends came together Friday, Oct. 19 to participate in the annual UTSA Homecoming Golf Tournament hosted at Silverhorn Golf Club in San Antonio.

The tournament coincides with a collection of other homecoming and game-day programs aimed to strengthen student, faculty, staff, alumni and community relationships and create bonds to The University of Texas at San Antonio. The money raised from the event assists students employed at Campus Recreation to attend national and regional conferences and workshops, which further their education and give them exposure to the fields of leadership development, university recreation, higher education, fitness and wellness, facility management, intramural and club sports, and marketing and outdoor recreation.

"I just wanted to thank you again for putting on such a great tournament! I play a few each year, and the UTSA one is the most well run and fun. Y'all do a great job," said UTSA alumnus Brian Kendall.

Congratulations to Luke Healy, J.R. Camahan, Kaden Duncan and Dustin Martin for shooting a 55 to win the tournament, as well as Closest to the Pin winners Kristen Kline and Ryan Lackey, and Longest Drive winners Laura Munroe and Mark Miller.

Special thanks go to UTSA Athletic Director Lynn Hickey for her opening remarks, as well as the UTSA Campus Recreation staff, the student organization volunteers from Pro-Rec and Men of Honor, and the organizations and businesses that made this tournament a success: Quality Hardwood Floors, Matera Paper Co., Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sprint, Crown Trophy, UTSA Athletics, UTSA Bookstore, CC Creations, Alamo Tees, Mission Restaurant Supply, Hillyard Inc., Rialto Jewelry, DAP Construction, Edwin Watts, Frost Bank at UTSA, Dixon Golf and the Silverhorn Golf Club.

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.
