Before setting up an OLE Calendar (used by each Circulation Desk), you must first define Exception Types. Exception Types define the most common reasons that a library is closed on a day(s) that it would otherwise normally be open. Typical Exception Types might include, but are not limited to:


Building Evacuation

Weather Event

Snow Day

Spring Break

As soon as you create a Calendar Exception Type, the name appears in a drop-down menu on a Calendar for use when defining Exception Days and/or Exception Periods.

The Exception Type document includes the Add/Edit Calendar Exception Type tab. The system automatically enters data into both the Old and New sections in this tab. Selected data fields are available for editing.

Add/Edit Calendar Exception Type Tab Definitions



Calendar Exception Type Code

Required. A unique code that identifies the Calendar Exception Type

Calendar Exception Type Name

Required. A descriptive title for the exception type. This displays in a drop-down menu on the Calendar for Exception Day and Exception Period

Active Indicator
