      We are still looking into Outlook 2011 on Mac OS X. I did post updated instruction on how to subscribe via the iCal application on Mac OS X.

    I do not use Microsoft Outlook.
    My regular email is Mozilla Thunderbird.
    The Seismograph Stations also uses Google calendar to record and communicate information and events in the department.
    Is there a way to go through Google or Mozilla to access the Finance and Business Services calendar?

      To add the Financial and Business Services calendar to your Google Calendar account, just visit our calendar at http://fbs.admin.utah.edu/calendar/ and click the link in the lower right corner of the calendar with the image that says “+ Google Calendar”. I don’t think Mozilla Thunderbird has any built-in calendaring.
