At CVU, we do use the resource feature in Google calendar for our labs and
carts.   Each lab and cart (resource) has a  calendar, which teachers have
added to their own calendars.  The calendars are set to auto-accept
appointments (unless there is a conflict).  There has been some confusion
about knowing when a resource has been added to an appointment, but Google
is improving this feature (if you have a Google calendar, check out "Sneak
Preview" when you go to create an event).
