Reservations

Reservations are optional, but you may wish to reserve an instrument if you have time constraints. If you reserve an instrument but do not use it at that time, you may be liable for use fees during that interval. Cancel reservations as early as possible if your schedule changes.

Please familiarize yourself with lab policy before reserving an instrument.

  2. Other calendars (down arrow) > Browse Interesting Calendars
  3. Select the “More” tab > Resources for mtu.edu
  4. Select the resource with “MFF” prefix > Subscribe.

Do Each Time

Add a Resource to Reserve an Instrument

  1. Log in to your Michigan Tech gmail account and display your calendar:

    https://www.google.com/calendar/render
  2. Create a new event in your personal calendar as: Full Name (First and Last) or Course.
  3. Edit the event and add a resource, eg:

    Add: Rooms, etc. > Other Resources > MFF instrument name

    The resource will automatically be added to the “Where” field.

    Add contact email, purpose (Course, Research, Demo, Maintenance), or other information in the Description field. You may invite others (Add: Guests) in addition to reserving the instrument.

    SAVE.
  4. If you are displaying your personal calendar and the resource calendar, you should see the event in both calendars.
