Law School Calendar Feeds

What is a calendar feed?

A calendar feed synchronizes and exchanges calendar information.  By subscribing to a calendar feed, you will have access to that institution's calendar, and can integrate that calendar into your own personal calendar.

How does the Columbia Law School calendar feed work?

If you subscribe to the Columbia Law School calendar feed, your calendar will import a new calendar labeled "Columbia Law School," which will show dates, times and locations for various events related to Columbia Law School.  The calendar will automatically synchronize every day to keep up with Columbia Law School's calendar.  In your calendar program, you will be able to hide or show the calendar as you like.

Which calendar programs does the feed work with?

Outlook 2007 or later, Apple iCal, and Google calendars

How does this differ from "Add to Calendar"?

You may see "Add to Calendar" in various places throughout the Columbia Law School website.  This feature allows you to add one specific event to your calendar.  The event will be added to your personal calendar (it will not show up as a separate Columbia Law School calendar as it would via feed).
