Web support for content editors: Events calendar

In June 2018, the UI Events Calendar took over as the campus-wide, shared events platform. It is a homegrown solution that aims to offer more flexibility. There will be some growing pains as we work together on the details. ITS and the Office of Strategic Communication are the primary drivers and developers of the platform.

A shared and central events system provides wider exposure for Libraries events so it behooves us to use it whenever possible. It also affords a single, authoritative source for event information. If event info changes (e.g., description changes, postponements or cancellations) then these changes are more easily and quickly shared.

To that end, we should use the UI Events Calendar whenever possible and avoid using blog posts for hosting event info.
