The Only Calendar Tool You'll Need

LibCal is a robust calendaring tool and its four distinct modules work together to provide an integrated solution.

  1. Event Registration & Management
  2. Room and Equipment Reservations
  3. Hours and Locations Management
  4. Librarian Appointment Scheduler

New Features Will Have You Doing a Double Take

  • Card View - Check out the “card” layout to show your upcoming events in style. In this new view, each event is represented as a card – the event’s date, time, and location are displayed at the top of each card for easy scanning, and each event’s title and description are displayed inside the card.
  • Internal Tags - Help manage your events with internal tags for classification and data-gathering purposes. 
  • Privacy-Related Updates - Enable a public cookie notice, make use of privacy scrubbing, and more.

We'll Cover:

  • Overview Tour - a brief tour of LibCal including all four components.
  • Mobile-First/Responsive Design - Learn how LibCal displays beautifully on any device.
  • Integration With Patron Authentication Systems - LibCal integrates with various authentication schemes for easy patron login before bookings or event registrations.  [Shibboleth, LDAP, SIP2, LDAP, self hosted supported]
  • In-Depth Statistics - Produce detailed reports showing how library rooms, equipment, and spaces are being used. 
  • Combine With Other Springshare Tools For Improved Workflows​ - If you're using other Springy Tools, enjoy seamless connections between LibCal and LibGuides, LibStaffer, and LibChat.

Migration from Existing Calendaring Tools

LibCal offers a fast migration from your existing calendaring tool - we'll migrate over past/present/future events and room-bookings plus all your statistics!
