simple room booking app?

I'm lazily looking for a simple app that will let us match up
teachers, classes, and instructors, preferably with a php/mysql
infrastructure so that it's accessible via the web. If there is a
single good repository of free scripts that would be useful as well.

Look at WebCalendar (http://webcalendar.sourceforge.net). php + mySQL.

It supports real users and non-users so you can, for example book a
meeting 'inviting' the teacher, the class, the room and even things like
the laptop, the projector etc. Calendars can be made public for people
to look at.

For all your free software needs: www.freshmeat.net

Thanks for those two cool suggestions. I will try to adapt one of
them to my evil designs. Basically, we schedule about 110
instructors, for a semester, with each instructor teaching 1-4
courses. It's not a huge array, but we usually sort by course or
instructor. Seven people do the scheduling, and we usually sort the
data by instructor and just email a spreadsheet around, but
synchronization is a problem. I will play around with these, thanks
for the help.

Most of the client-based versions of this software cost too much and
sorta suck.

The industry term for it is "timetabling."

Thanks again :)
