The booking module was enabled with the 3.4 Evergreen upgrade in January 2020.
Libraries can currently configure two types of resources for reservations: rooms and projectors. To do this, the LocalAdmin will follow the steps below to set up the resources. After they are configured, circulation staff will be able to reserve them for staff or patron use.
If additional resource types are needed, please contact the Help Desk with your request.
Optional: Define Resource Attributes
Resource attributes can be defined if you want to be able to filter your list of resources - for example, if you had 10 meeting rooms, it might be helpful to be able to only show the rooms that could hold 50-80 people. However, if you only have two meeting rooms, it may be easier to identify them by name (Large Meeting Room, Small Meeting Room)
Patrons cannot reserve resources on their own, they must ask library staff to make a reservation on their behalf.
Every library that uses the booking module should check the reservations each morning to view reservations for the day.
Staff can view a patron's reservations by opening the account and clicking on Other > Booking: Manage Reservations.
The Booking Module is currently undergoing additional development. More information on the progress and ideas for future work can be found on the Evergreen Student Success Working Group site.
