I have loaded both the 90.1-2010.osm and 90.1-2013.osm libraries into my OpenStudio project. How do I know which Space Types are 90.1-2010 and which are 90.1-2013? There doesn't appear to be way to distinguish them.

Probably best approach is to reset the library to default, and then just load one or the other. You can also use the Space Type and Construction Set Wizard measure from BCL to dynamically build space types fro specific building type, climate zone, and vintage/template combination.

Gotcha! Thank you. And how do you reset the library to default? Do I load in a blank library or something? I accepted this as the answer, but I'll wait to close it until I figure out how to do what you recommend.
