(Sept. 27, 2013) -- The UTSA College of Public Policy, UTSA Student Government Association (SGA) and the League of Women Voters will host a discussion about proposed Texas constitutional amendment Proposition 6. The Texas Water Forum will be 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1 in Frio Street Building Room 1.406 at the UTSA Downtown Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

"The forum serves to inform the public about Proposition 6 and how its passage would affect their lives and local governments across Texas," said Francine Romero, associate dean of the UTSA College of Public Policy. "The goal of the forum is to bring these important policy issues to the forefront of public awareness."

The panelists will discuss the pros and cons of Proposition 6, which would establish the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas to assist in the financing of priority projects in the Texas State Water Plan. Voting for passage of Proposition 6 will be part of the statewide Nov. 5 election. SGA officers will be at the UTSA forum to register voters.

  • Alyssa Burgin, executive director, Texas Drought Project

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.
