Booking a Room Reservation

Under the Schedule menu item, choose Bookings. This will show you the available, reserved, and blocked slots on the schedule and allow you to book an available room.

The system defaults to Butler Library. Select the blue triangle next to Butler Library to book a room reservation in either Lehman Social Sciences Library or the Science & Engineering Library.

Adding a Reservation to a Calendar Program

When viewing or updating a reservation, you can add your reservation to a calendar program. Click on Download to Calendar. If Microsoft Outlook is installed on your computer, you will be asked to add the meeting. If Outlook is not installed on your computer, you will be prompted to download an .ics file. This is a standard calendar format. You can use this file to add the reservation to any application that supports the iCalendar file format.
