(July 21, 2014) -- This week, there will be UTSA summer camps on baseball and volleyball, plus the Summer Music Institute. UTSA is San Antonio's camp destination with more than 8,500 young students and teens participating in 23 camps over the summer.

Camps and academies also include science, technology, engineering, architecture, law, writing, and language and culture. The campers expand their horizons through hands-on activities and open their minds to educational and career opportunities. For many, it is their first experience at a top institution of higher education.

Camp highlights for this week:

-- The Summer Music Institute is July 21-25.

In the weeklong intensive program, talented young string and piano musicians will experience chamber music coaching, master classes and classroom instruction from UTSA music faculty and guest instructors. The unique program offers students the opportunity for performance from intermediate to advanced levels.

Ranging from ages 13 to 18, students accepted into the institute will work with music carefully chosen to match their individual ability levels. The campers will experience life as a UTSA music major working with faculty one-on-one, in chamber groups and in the classroom. They also will be featured in a chamber music recital at the end of the week.

-- This week, UTSA Athletics will host Baseball Youth Summer Camp #3 and Volleyball Varsity Team Camp.

In the baseball camp, students will participate in lectures and drill work in half-day and all-day sessions. They will learn about throwing, hitting, fielding, fly balls, base running and bunting. Additionally, the young athletes will compete in the Roadrunner Olympics.

In the volleyball camp, UTSA coaches will guide the team of high school players through tactics, techniques and finer points of the game to put the players and their teams a step ahead of their opponents. Topics will include team offense, team defense and team serve receive strategies. Each team will be provided a camp coach.

The array of sports camps also includes basketball, soccer, softball, golf and football to help youth develop their skills through practice and friendly competition in a fun and challenging environment.

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.
