The Google Calendar Associated with Your Google Account

The Google account you logged into after you logged into DC is automatically associated with a single Google calendar, called your Primary Calendar.

Secondary Calendars Associated with your Google Account or another Google User

The Google Calendar permits you to create one or more secondary calendars in your Google account. Note: Like the Primary Calendar, a secondary calendar can be shared with other members of the office.  

Shared Calendar Owned by Another Google User

You can also post events on a Primary Google calendar which another Google account holder has shared with you.
