OWL Library Staff Tutorials
The Online With Libraries (OWL) program provided a variety of hardware and software to project libraries. This page offers tutorials and other information to OWL library staff on using the hardware, software and videoconferencing services OWL makes available.
Computer Hardware and Software Information
The OWL program no longer provides software to libraries. As of June 2018, Deep Freeze had compatibility issues with Windows 10. If either compatibility or cost is an issue for your library, consider a free "freeze" program, like Reboot and Restore RX freeware.
