Today the ‘where’ of a room, desk, event, or meeting reservation is just as important as the ‘what’ and ‘when’. LibCal's optional mapping module adds interactive and directional space/seat maps so libraries can:
Online visuals like interactive and directional maps encourage site engagement and provide a better booking experience. And interactive maps are mobile-friendly right from the start, so they'll look and work great on all screen sizes.
Watch a 30-minute deep dive into LibCal Interactive Maps including exploring the patron interface and backend admin functionality from customizations to setup.
Our consulting team will work closely with you to produce beautiful, scalable maps that look great on desktop or on mobile (or if you already have maps that look great, send them over and skip this step), and then we’ll add interactive areas to it. Each hotspot area will be associated with corresponding zones, spaces, and seat locations in LibCal. Ask us to learn more about this process!
While interactive maps are an add-on feature, all LibCal subscribers can share maps with event attendees and appointment registrants!
Upload your event and appointment image maps to their corresponding locations in LibCal and the system will automatically share it on the event's public page or appointment confirmation page and corresponding booking emails.
Then all someone needs to do is click on the map's link to know exactly where they need to go when they arrive!
Location maps not only improve the booking experience but they also help inform the user where they need to go in the library to get to their desired space. This means they will know which entrance to use, what stairway or elevator to take, and where to go to reach their study or meeting room, computer, or study carrel.
