Your patrons can reserve rooms and equipment and register for events using their mobile phone - all LibCal screens are mobile-friendly out of the box.
Automation To Save Time
LibCal automatically sends out automated confirmation, reminder, overdue, and follow-up emails. Include post-event surveys, too!
In-Depth Statistics Show How Library Is Used
Produce detailed reports showing how library rooms, equipment, and spaces are being used. What are the peak booking periods, the most popular spaces and items, etc. Events reporting shows event attendance trends, and the appointment scheduler statistics reveal booking trends for research appointments and one-on-one consultations.
LibCal produces comprehensive statistics reports to help you make the best use of your library's spaces and equipment. Use actionable data to maximize usage and library offerings to meet the needs of the community.
