Ever wonder what the library’s hours are today and wish it was easier to find on the library homepage? Now it is! On the top of the right hand column, you’ll find today’s hours listed, as well as a link to our Google Calendar. The hours update automatically, which is especially useful during breaks.

Woohoo, Amanda! This is really great! Very impressive.
Would you be willing to share how you pulled the today’s hours info from google calendar and put in on the homepage. Thanks very much for any information that you can give.

Certainly! I followed the article on Code4Lib: http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/46 and modified it as needed using the Google API documentation: http://code.google.com/apis/calendar/data/1.0/developers_guide_js.html
Feel free to look at the code I used on our homepage. If you have any questions, please email me at ahartman [at] reynolds [dot] edu
