BCL's main calendar grants all members the right to read all calendar events and receive default notifications of events. However, only assigned Bloomington Cooperative Living Google Workspace administrators have the additional access to write, edit, create, and delete calendar events.

 

All BCL members have the privileges in Google Drive to read, write, edit, create, comment, and delete most documents.
