Events: Add and manage campuses / branches

In this article

What are campuses?

If you are part of a library system that has multiple sites (such as branches, libraries, or campuses), you can list at which site each event is located. This can be especially helpful when you're sharing one calendar with multiple sites. Only have a single site? No worries! This part is entirely optional and you do not need to set it up.

Although we refer to a site as a Campus by default, you can actually change this label to be whatever you'd like! For example, this could be a district, a region, a building, etc. -- whatever works best for you!

We recommend setting up your sites before you start creating calendars. That way, your event organizers will have a place to schedule their events so your patrons will know where to go.  :)

  1. Set the Name for the campus on the Add New Campus modal.
  2. Optionally, if you've added the Google Map box to your event page, you can display a map to this campus' location when its assigned to an event. Enter your campus' Google Place ID if you'd like to display its location as a marker on Google Maps.
    • Not sure what your library's Place ID is? You can look it up using Google's Place ID Finder.
    • Please note: if you enter a Place ID, the latitude and longitude fields will be disabled.
  3. If you are not using a Google Place ID, enter the latitude and longitude coordinates for your campus.
    • Not sure how to find these? Go to Google Maps and look up your location. Then, right click on it and select "What's Here" to view the latitude and longitude for that point.
    • Unlike when using a Place ID, your location will not be indicated by a marker on the Google Map. Rather, the map will display centered on your location.
  4. After you enter either a Place ID or latitude & longitude, the Google Map Preview will show you how the map will appear on your event pages.
  5. Click the Save button.
