Hi everyone,

We are looking for a simple system to allow students (and others) to self-schedule study rooms in the library. 

I started to build a solution in SharePoint 2010, but before I go to far I want to see what other libraries do. We don't have a dedicated library server to install anything on, so I prefer a hosted solution that is free, or very minimal. It would be great if it was mobile phone friendly too (iOS, Android).

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

At UST we’re using Springshare’s LibCal product.  You can see our implementation of it at http://stthomas.libcal.com/.  Springshare’s page on the service: http://www.springshare.com/libcal/. It’s not free, but reasonably priced.

 

Also looked at several open source products that are out there, but evidently that’s not viable in your environment.

 

Let me know if you’d like more information.

Ryan,

 

Do you currently use Exchange?  Any reason not to set up each room as a Resource, and either auto-accept, or have someone approve?
