Anne Marie asks:
I'm wondering how, at the program level, various institutions organize library instruction schedules. Currently we have a master spreadsheet with all library instruction sessions listed (day, date, time, course #, section #, instructor, librarian, location, assistants if any, and short notes/content).
This is replicated, for sessions held in the library instruction computer lab, in Outlook, with appointments sent to assigned librarians for those sessions (we meet periodically to divvy out all the Core/gen ed sessions & librarians take others in their liaison areas). We need to be able to see all sessions in one place (spreadsheet) as well as manage the room we administer (Outlook room calendar).
We have done it this way for a long time as the program has grown significantly, with now about 500 sessions per year, and I'm wondering if this is still the best way. Any ideas for improving and perhaps streamlining our process?
