is a top notch online calender with many powerful features (see overview
). One of the most important feature is that libraries can offer library events as public google calenders, and users who add that to their google calenders can get free SMS reminders (this works worldwide!)
In this post, I will review how libraries have being using Google calender.
These uses include
(1) Embedding Google calender events in list view, or as calender views & allowing users to subscribe to these events using RSS, iCal or adding directly to Google Calender
(2) Linking the library management system to Google Calender, allowing users to receive sms alerts about personalised library events such as reminders of date due books, arrival of reserved books etc.
(3) Librarians setting up reminders of electronic resource renewals
(4) Other ideas?
