We use a GDrive spreadsheet, with a new sheet for each week. It's nice
because it allows you to set up the times in whatever length of blocks work
best for your situation.

In order to allow people to do larger "projects" we don't allow people to
sign up more than 3-4 weeks in advance (we don't have sheets available more
than a month out) unless they set something up with the Tech Coordinator.
In my experience, you need to do this or else people love to block off the
same time all year (ie: "every Thursday from 2-2:30 is my computer time)
and it becomes impossible to find time for more extensive projects.

We have quite a few people who prefer to sign out the portable (cart) lab
instead of bringing their class to the stationary lab. The trouble is that
they end up checking it out for quite a few hours at a time rather than
getting it when needed and returning it as soon as they're done. Carts are
nice, but they tend to serve far fewer students, I think.
