1. The Blue Crew are your friends!
If you’re ever lost or have a question, folks in blue UTSA Libraries sweaters are always there to help you out. You can even chat with them from the Libraries website.

Need to find a study space? You can reserve one of UTSA Libraries’ sought-after study rooms online. The Libraries also offer quiet computing study rooms and graduate student study rooms.
3. Print, scan, copy: It’s your one-stop shop for your printing needs
Printing stations are located inside the JPL and Downtown Library. Students enrolled on a full-time basis receive $12 in printing credit at the beginning of each semester.

5. The UTSA Libraries website has just about everything.
The UTSA Libraries website is one of the university’s most visited websites. There, you can access articles, movies and more. Use the Get It For Me service to request books and articles; when they’re ready, pick them up in-person at the front desk.
