Electronic calendars installed at courthouse

Humboldt County Superior Court began using electronic calendars Monday to automatically update the court's management system every 30 minutes, according to a press release.

The project was in collaboration with the Orange County Superior Court, Sacramento County Superior Court and Monterey County Superior Court, with donations of computers to display messages and calendars, the server to run the software and the software application to run the calendars, respectively.

Electronic calendars will be located outside each courtroom on the second floor of the County Courthouse Building. There will also be two master calendars, one on the second floor and the other on the first floor, outside the clerk's office.

The calendars will serve to reduce the amount of paper used by the court, reduce the staff time it takes to circulate paper calendars and quickly notify the public of any changes there might be with a case, according to the release.
