I've added a conference room as an Exchange user so that it has a mailbox and can be booked as a resource in Outlook. Is it possible to share it's calendar so that it is bookable through Public Folders? I.e. I want to be able to go to Public Folders in Outlook, click the conference room to see the calendar and then simply right click to make an appointment and the conference room should be auto-selected as a resource. Thanks for any assistance.

Short answer is no.
Public Folders and Mailboxes are two separate things. You cannot link the two. The most you could do is use a third party tool to keep them in sync.
For a resource to work it needs to be selected as a resource through Outlook, not from a public folder.
