He also might want to look at Horde. You can install from 
www/horde-meta and choose the kronolith module. 

From their website:

"The Kronolith calendar provides a robust web-based calendar for any 
number of users or groups, with the ability to show any number of 
calendars in a single overlaid view. Users can create any number of 
calendars and grant read, edit, or full permissions to any user, 
group, or any combination thereof."
