Alumni Win an Exclusive Tour of UTSA'S Special Collections

Faculty Teaching in the Archives (FTIA) Grants Announced

"On February 18, alumni Armando and Sonya Marroquin, along with four of their closest friends they met while studying at UTSA, returned to campus for a behind-the-scenes look at UTSA’s Special Collections. Armando and Sonya attended the UTSA Alumni Gala last summer and won the tour at a silent auction held during the event. The unique package included wine, hors d’oeuvres and a private walkthrough of a historical collection of their choice. After touring the Special Collections Reading Room with Amy Rushing, head of Special Collections, the group enjoyed an exhibit and presentation on “The History of the Book: From Papyri to the Modern Small Press” led by Agnes Czeblakow, rare books librarian. The exhibit contained several titles from the UTSA Libraries rare book collection, chronicling the earliest examples of writing on papyrus and vellum to medieval illuminated manuscripts to 19th-21st century books, as well as a distinct collection of modern artists’ books." -UTSA Libraries Communications

Interesting fact: the Marroquins were also mentioned in a Top Shelf Blog post, "A UTSA Love Timeline," published on Valentine's Day.
