LibCal is an event scheduling tool that enables staff to post a library event anywhere on the Web. MIT Libraries' staff can request an account by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. LibCal training or a prior working knowledge of the tool is a requirement for an account.
3 LibCal calendars are available to use:
Events can require registration but it's also not necessary. A registration form is needed however if the event requires registration. "Register" is the title of the default registration form. It contains the following fields:
Feel free to use this form or create one of your own.
Marketing public events:
After you set up your event, ask your department's designated news correspondent to post the event on the events category in the Libraries' news blog. They can also add the event added to the MIT Events Calendar for maximum visibility.
(Don't worry about marketing classes that are part of IAP, IAPril, JulyAP, and October IAP. Those will be posted by the series coordinator.)
