    • "Available from Library computers only" - On a Library computer click on the ZENworks Application Portal icon on the desktop.
    • "Available in x library only" - these databases are only available from computers in the specific library. Some databases are available from all computers in the library by clicking on the ZENworks Application icon on the desktop. Other databases are available only from a specific computer. Enquire in that library location
    • "Additional software required" - a few databases require special software. Follow the instructions to download and install the software
