2018-12-19 10:02:27 -0500 marked best answer openstudio load library osm problem

In the helpful book, "Building Energy Modeling with OpenStudio," Fig. 2.26 shows many osm files, but I see only a few when I go to file and "load library." There are mostly DEER and 90_1 osm files available. I have searched "all over" my folders for them with no success. I have found the completed PrimarySchool file in the book's supplemental materials, but even when I use github to bring in the prototype files, "load library" doesn't bring in the PrimarySchool osm file as I see it in the book's supplemental material. If necessary I can just skip the exercise, but the book has otherwise been very useful in methodically learning Openstudio. Item 5 on page 51 says this is supposed to work. I can imagine the ability to bring in osm material such as this is something I'd like to have in the future, too.
