Ever wanted to be able to find out about READS, CHILIS, URBANS or other NHLA events all in one place? Well now you can, thanks to our new Master Calendar. The Master Calendar can be seen by clicking on the "Master Calendar" link in the left-hand sidebar. The Master Calendar includes events for all NHLA meetings and events, including READS, CHILIS, URBANS and YALS events. If you would like an event added to the calendar, please send the webmaster an email and include all the relevant information (date, time, location, event description, etc.)
When viewing the calendar, there are separate tabs for "Month" view and "Agenda" view. Play around with both and see which one you prefer. In some ways, I prefer Agenda view. In other ways I prefer the Month view.
Unfortunately, right now Google Calendar does not allow me to assign categories to individual events, so there is no way to easily view all the CHILIS events by themselves, or all the READS events. I’m working on a makeshift solution, but for now that is not possible. Sorry!
Please send me any other ideas/suggestions for how I can improve the calendar feature. The goal is to make NHLA event information, and perhaps other related library events, easily available to NHLA members. With the Master Calendar, I think we’re moving ahead in that direction.
