Using the Outlook Calendar to Reserve Space

Introduction

The University Email Service allows for a type of calendar that is specific to shared rooms and equipment. This type of calendar can be used to manage conference rooms, presentation spaces, projectors, lab equipment, etc. This is different from calendars an individual faculty or staff member would make themselves: they are managed by a group of people in the department and the process for adding events to this calendar can be restricted to certain department members.
