When you support the UTSA Libraries and the Institute of Texan Cultures, you provide resources available to ALL UTSA students.
There are three programs with UTSA Libraries and the Institute of Texan Cultures that your gift may support:
Free Textbooks for UTSA Students
Help remove financial barriers of expensive college textbooks. Funds raised will be used to directly support UTSA faculty that are transforming courses that have relied on traditional, expensive textbooks to free textbooks.
