(Nov. 12, 2013) -- The UTSA Mexico Center announces the 2013-2014 competition for the UTSA Mexico Center Educational Research Fellowship. The fellowship provides financial assistance for student and faculty research projects on Mexico-related topics that need time in Mexico to do field work or consultation at a university or research center.

The student grants, funded by the Carlos and Malu Alvarez International Study Fund are worth $2,500. They pay for student travel to Mexico, food, lodging, local travel, and supplies/materials needed to complete the project such as data sets for quantitative analysis or transcribers/recorders for fieldwork.

To encourage teams of faculty and student researchers, the Mexico Center will supplement the student grant with up to $1,000 for faculty members working with students on the projects (one faculty member per project). The funds from the center for the faculty member supervising the project will pay for faculty travel to Mexico, food, lodging and supplies/materials needed to complete the project.

The grant cannot support faculty research alone. Funding is contingent upon travel approval by the UTSA International Oversight Committee (IOC). Travel to borders states in Mexico is highly restricted.

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.
