• From the LibCal homepage, select the library where you would like to reserve a space under "Make a room reservation".
• Select the specific room that you would like to reserve and the intended date for the reservation. If a room is already booked for a specific timeframe, that information will appear to the right of that room listing.
• By clicking on a room, users may view additional information on that space, including accessibility, AV capabilities and terms and conditions.
• After selecting a room and date, choose a time for your reservation and submit the booking. Additional terms and conditions will be provided before submitting your booking.
• Following submission, you will receive an email confirmation, which includes an option to cancel your booking and a file to add the scheduled date and time to your Outlook Calendar.
• For a step-by-step walk through of the reservation process, click here.

> How does this new site differ from the previous reservation system?


UK Libraries' new reservation system offers centralized service and real time updates to help streamline and ease the process of your next room reservation.

• This new system provides a single location for users to check availability and submit a request without having to wait for a confirmation or more information on room availability.
• Each reservable room is broken down into category and intent of space, most of which were not available in UK Libraries' previous reservation system.
• See which space is right for you through filters such as capacity, category and location.

Room set-up and AV services are now self-service in all reservable library spaces. Browse UK Libraries' reservable spaces for more information on AV capabilities and room features.
