Set domain users as reviewer delegate for resource mailbox exchange 2007

I want to be able to to set my resources (like meeting rooms and other bookable objects(cameras laptops etc)) in exchange 07 so that though outlook 07 users can open the shared calendars of these resources and view bookings in advance but still not be able to change the bookings of others (as they are currently setup). they are fully setup and working properly and have been used for several weeks like this, but I just want this feature enabled

ok, simple solution was found.
  1. open shared calendar as domain admin
  2. right click tab of calendar you want to edit>properties>permissions
Its all pretty obvious after that point

Syntax is

Add-MailboxPermission Identity <Resource-Mailbox> -User <user> -AccessRights <Access Allowed> -InheritanceType <Inheritances Type>

can someone clarify that a little more? what would be the exact cmd in the following fields Rajith has provided:
<Resource-mailbox> (I'm guessing mailbox name)
<user> (theres no user account attatched because its a resource)
<access allowed>   (<-this is basically what I need to know)
<inheritance type> (whats this?)
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

OK, I've worked out all the fields above and what they mean and should be to get what I'm trying to do working but I'm getting stuck on something.
<identity> <--this is meant to be the name of the resource user account that I want to give the rights to domain users for read access. below is the command im typing and the error I'm getting:
add-mailboxpermission identity "Melbourne Meeting Room 4" -user domain users -accessrights readpermission
The error I'm getting indicates that it cant find the identity "Melbourne Meeting Room 4"
What is meant to be the identity?
Is this command going to do what I'm asked in the original question?
Rajith EnchiparambilOffice 365 & Exchange ArchitectCommented:
The command is correct except it is missing a "-" symbol before identity.

type add-mailboxpermission -identity "Melbourne Meeting Room 4" -user domain users -accessrights readpermission
alyas404Author Commented:
Now the error is:
Add-MailboxPermission : Cannot bind parameter 'accessrights'. Cannot convert value "readpermission" to type "" due to invalid enumeration values. specify one of the following. and then goes on to list all the values that accessrights could be.
Any clues?
would you like any more info?
Really need this solved is a hot topic in the office.
even if theres a sneaky non-console way I can acheive this eg creating a user account attatched and logging in and physically setting delegate access
