Optometry Library Services

The George W. Brackenridge library at the UIWRSO maintains a collection of materials in various formats to support the Optometry curriculum and ongoing research by students and faculty. Academic support is also extended to the Vision Studies program at UIW and serves as the vision science resource collection for Optometric practitioners and residents in San Antonio and the surrounding areas.  We maintain regular library hours during the long semesters and extended hours during finals and preparation for the Board exams.
