LibCal Outlook Integration: HOME

This guide will describe how to integrate your outlook calendar with LibCal allowing you to create an way to schedule appointments through your profile in any Lib-Application.

LibCal Outlook Integration

Users of the LibApps Suite of applications can now integrate their University of Akron Outlook calendars with LibCal allowing them to create a seamless method for patrons and community members to schedule appointments with them.  If you are a user of LibGuides, LibAnswers, LibCal, LibStaffer, LibWizard, or LibInsight, you can create a button on your profile box or page that will allow for scheduled appointments on your Outlook calendar.  This does not allow the person scheduling the appointment to see your Outlook calendar, but will allow for them to see available times that you define. You will also be able to review statistics of the of appointments created. This is a great tool especially for Research Librarians to track your consultations.

If you do not have a LibCal account, contact Joshua Grove, Web Development Specialist, at jjg35@uakron.edu to assist you.
