LibCal My Scheduler for UL Librarians

What is My Scheduler?

My Scheduler makes it easy for your users to book one-on-one appointments with you. Whether it's via your public appointment booking page or a My Scheduler widget, patrons can see when you're available and schedule an appointment in just a few clicks. You can view and manage all of your appointments right from within LibCal. 

Best Practices for Using LibCal

  1. Add 6 hours or more of availability each week in order to give students the most opportunity to meet. Also, vary the time of day, if possible. You can make recurring appointments. 
  2. Add the "Schedule Appointment" widget to your LibGuides profile.
  3. Promote the research consultation service during class and include a link to your My Scheduler page in your email signature. 
  4. Cancel availability during breaks and over holidays.
  5. Set the meeting location to the Service and Information Desk, if your office is difficult to find.
