When you view the Web page for a single event, our calendar system offers two different
ways to add an event to your personal calendar: Importing and Subscribing.
How should you choose which to use?
To import an event is to copy its current listing into your personal calendar.
This is a one-time operation. Think of it as jotting down the details you see.
To subscribe to an event (or list of events) is to tell your calendar software
to retrieve the information about the event (or list of events) right now and to
periodically check with our servers to see if there have been any updates.
Most lists of events on our website are actually the result of searches against our database,
for instance http://apps.alexandriava.gov/Calendar/?show=OHA
lists events from Historic Alexandria that occur today or on some future date. Subscribing
to a list like this will cause your calendar system to add new events as they're entered into
our database, usually within a day or so.
