Oregon State University



The current OSU Events Calendar was built in March 2006 to provide a long-term web calendar solution for Oregon State University. The calendar was designed in-house to meet the most common public calendaring needs for departments and groups. However, it was realized that no single calendar application could fit everyone's needs, so flexibility and extensibility remained paramount. With data import and export tools, the web calendar serves as a central storage platform for distributed event data. A centralized data source allows individuals to easily find information. Providing export in standard formats allows event data to be accessed and integrated into other web sites and applications.
