A Calendar defines a library’s open and closed days/hours for a definite or indefinite chronological period.

Each Calendar is assigned to a Calendar Group (even if the library uses only one Calendar). A Calendar Group can have one Calendar with no End Date and be used indefinitely OR a Calendar Group can have a chronological sequence of Calendars, one becoming active automatically as soon as the previous one expires.

Each Circulation Desk defines the Calendar Group it uses; if a library has multiple Circulation Desks that share the same hours, all of those Circulation Desks can use the same Calendar Group. Any Circulation Desk with its own hours will need its own Calendar Group.

A Calendar can define individual hours for each day of the week or define the days that share the same hours. Exceptions can be defined by specific dates or by periods of time.

Each library must have at least one Calendar Group.

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