A guide to GIS resources at UTSA Libraries

UTSA Faculty, Staff, and Researchers

UTSA Faculty and Staff can request ArcGIS Desktop for their UTSA computers from UTSA at no charge.  The form is available through the University Technology Solutions. UTSA has a  campus-wide license for ArcGIS software (installed on selected computers) and access to ESRI.  Online use is available through MyAppsVDI. 


ArcGIS software is available on all the Engineering Computers on the 2nd Floor of the John Peace Library.  A list of software loaded on these computers is found on the College of Engineering site. 

Engineering computers are available at the AET Library.

Key Databases
