UTA Libraries participates in several annual events that celebrate students and faculty and connect the university to other institutions around the world.
Faculty Creative Works
This annual event showcases the art, books, juried exhibits, music, media, patents, and journal contributions of UTA faculty. We host it to shine a spotlight on the impressive depth and breadth of scholarship and creativity produced by UTA faculty.
Open Access Week is an international event celebrated by libraries and universities around the world. We join them every October with a series of presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and information sessions on the whys and hows of Open Access.
When Virginia Garrett donated her extensive personal collection of maps, geography textbooks, and atlases to UTA in 1997, a special endowment was established to promote its use by inviting scholars to speak on topics relating to the history of cartography.
The annual Fun Fair at the Central Library coincides with the University's welcome week called Maverick Stampede. It is part of the Libraries' mission to connect students to each other and to the University community to help ensure their success.
