(Aug. 30, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Organization Council hosted a mixer at 12:30 p.m., Friday, in the University Center Denman Room, where the presidents of UTSA registered student organizations networked and talked about their plans for the new academic year. There are nearly 300 UTSA registered student organizations.

"This event is going well, and the food is fantastic," said Malcolm Ramey, a senior communication major representing the National Panhellenic Council and Phi Beta Sigma. "I've made some new connections with other fraternities."

Crystal Castro, a sophomore international business major, was at the mixer representing the Anime Club. "I've met a lot of the presidents of other clubs, and it has been a whole lot of fun," she said. "Our club sort of started out as a Japanese nerd-culture club and evolved into the Anime Club. There is another group kind of like us, but interested in American nerd culture. They're called the Nerd Fighters, and we're trying to coordinate an event together."

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.
