About the University of Texas at San Antonio Libraries

The University of Texas at San Antonio is one of the fastest growing higher education institutions in Texas and the third largest institution in the UT System. Serving the San Antonio metropolitan area and the broader region of South Texas, UTSA has about 30,000 students enrolled in 66 bachelor’s, 52 master’s and 24 doctoral degree programs across its three campuses: Main Campus, Downtown Campus and Hemisfair Park Campus. As a multicultural institution of access and excellence, UTSA aims to be a premier public research university providing access to educational excellence and preparing citizen leaders for the global environment.

The UTSA Libraries include the John Peace Library on the Main Campus, the Downtown Campus Library, and our Applied Engineering and Technology Library recognized by the New York Times and USA Today as the nation’s first bookless library on a university campus.

The John Peace Library is nearing the end of a four year renovation process informed by fresh thinking on collection management and student intellectual engagement. The libraries are well integrated into the intellectual life of campus through active partnerships with the Writing Center, Teaching and Learning Center and Tomás Rivera Center for Student Success. In support of UTSA’s ascent to premier research university status, the UTSA Libraries are proud to preserve the legacies of San Antonio and South Texas through our growing Special Collections featuring primary resource materials on San Antonio authors, architecture and urban development, Mexican cookery, women and women’s history, and the Texas Mexico border region.
