Important note about Resource25: Some of Google's documentation for the Calendar app explains how to use the calendar to book rooms and resources. However, Smith uses 25Live (formerly Resource 25) to reserve rooms and other resources in almost all campus locations. However, if your department manages a room that is not included in 25Live, you can create a separate calendar for that room and share it with your department.
Smith Calendar lets you schedule meetings and events and invite co-workers if you wish. Here's a selection of resources for learning about your new Smith calendar.
