UTSA Libraries opens facility in Applied Engineering and Technology Building
(May 14, 2010)--The UTSA Libraries opened on May 10 its first satellite library on the second floor of the new Applied Engineering and Technology (AET) Building on the Main Campus. The 2,200-square-foot AET Library provides study space for 80 with three group study rooms, 10 computer workstations, a scanner and a networked printer.
A bookless library designed specifically with engineering and science students in mind, the space will provide a convenient place to study, collaborate on group projects and receive onsite research support. Digital monitors and whiteboards are incorporated into the AET Library to facilitate group projects and interaction.
"I think the AET Library has the potential to really put us into the forefront in terms of reimagining the multiple roles a 21st century academic library can play on a campus," says Krisellen Maloney, dean of libraries. "Research tells us that engaged students are more likely to graduate, and this library will offer students another forum for connecting with their studies and classmates."
"Our students have long waited for a study space like this," said Mauli Agrawal, dean of the College of Engineering. "It will provide a tremendous boost to our efforts to prepare students with a more collaborative learning experience."
Engineering librarian Jeff McAdams and science librarian Ellen Lutz will provide instruction and research assistance at this location together with graduate and undergraduate student assistants. AET Library hours are 8 a.m.-10 p.m., Monday-Friday.
