Thanks in advance.

Load library contains some OSM documents which allow us to refine our model with many ready-made definitions about construction and schedules.

First question, recently I'm working on a model of a Hospital. I was wondering what template to import.

Second, is there a complete and offical illustration about which OSM model is applied for?

And here is a screenshot of the ''Load Library''

There are many versions of the DEER library but I think this answer might help you a little bit.

Here is a list of the DOE building types, I don't know if data center and Lab are included in load library of OpenStudio Application, however you can always use the SpaceType and Construction Set Wizard measure, to build space types and constructions on the fly using OpenStudio Standards.
