UTSA Bookless Library

Texas is at it again — another first for us! This time, it is The University of Texas at San Antonio leading the way by creating the first bookless library in the US.

The library, the Applied Engineering and Technology Library, is a branch of the John Peace Library. The AET Library has a capacity of 80, has 10 desktops, and space for study and collaboration.

As you might guess, their collection consists of e-books and e-journal subscriptions. Students are noticing that the librarians and library staff have more time to help them with their work and research, and that books that used to be “checked out” are now accessible by more than one person.
