LibCal for Libraries - Your Calendaring Solution

Integration With Patron Authentication Systems

Enable authentication to ensure adherence to policies

When the "Who" is important.

Only want staff to book the conference room? Or, only cardholders or graduate students to book makerspace equipment?

With integrated LibAuth, you can require patron authentication in various parts of LibCal giving you the peace of mind that only valid patrons can use your services.

LibAuth comes free with LibCal and works with the following protocols:

  • SAML (including Shibboleth, Microsoft Active Directory [ADFS], Okta, and OpenAthens)
  • CAS
  • LDAP
  • OAuth 2
  • SIP2
  • SirsiDynix Symphony
  • Innovative Polaris
  • Custom authentication script

We are members of InCommon and UK Federation.

Where restrictions apply.

SAML, Shibboleth, ADFS, OAuth 2, CAS, and SIP2 can use groups to further restrict access.

  • Registering for events
  • Scheduling in Appointments 
  • Booking Spaces and Seats
  • Booking Equipment either in conjunction with a space or independently
