About the UTSA Libraries

JPL Information Commons

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 recently underwent a major renovation project 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.
