Louisiana State University Library

  • Book Library Spaces/Rooms - This library strategically includes images in the description of the rooms they have available. This increases appeal and helps people select the proper room or space.
  • Authentication - Is the conference room only for the staff? Are certain carrels only for Graduate Students? LibAuth in LibCal allows librarians to restrict categories of spaces and, even, individual spaces.
  • Managing Spaces - LSU librarians can see on a time-slotted grid, which Collaborative Group Rooms are booked and available. They can also choose to mediate bookings, create widgets to promote, mark users as showing up, and more.
