How to Edit/Cancel a Booking

Our library users can sign-up for study rooms online-- http://hostos.libcal.com/booking/studyrooms. Librarians may need to occasionally log in to the admin portion of the application to assist users with cancelling a booking or to see booking details (if conflicts arise). Click the "Admin Sign In" link at the bottom of the application to access the admin side of the Room Bookings application.

Sign-in

The Room Bookings application is part of LibCal. Once you're logged in, you'll see a menu bar at the top of the page with lots of links to other libcal options. Click the Room Bookings link. 

You're almost there! Remember to click the reserved time-slot to first select the booking you want to edit or cancel.

  1. Dry-erase Markers and Erasers
