I think that a quick extra note should be thrown out: As I understand it the configuration described below will apply to patrons at home as well as those in the library. If you just want to restrict in-library machines you may need a different solution.

Hi Jesse, I believe there are two steps you need to take: (1) Set the physical_loc environment variable in the Apache config for each of your subdomains, using a directive like this: SetEnv physical_loc 4 (2) In your library settings, set "Org Unit Hiding Depth" to the appropriate value for each library. Here's the description for that setting: This will hide certain org units in the public OPAC if the Physical Location (url param "physical_loc") for the OPAC inherits this setting. This setting specifies an org unit depth, that together with the OPAC Physical Location determines which section of the Org Hierarchy should be visible in the OPAC. For example, a stock Evergreen installation will have a 3-tier hierarchy (Consortium/System/Branch), where System has a depth of 1 and Branch has a depth of 2. If this setting contains a depth of 1 in such an installation, then every library in the System in which the Physical Location belongs will be visible, and everything else will be hidden. A depth of 0 will effectively make every org visible. The embedded OPAC in the staff client ignores this setting. Hope that helps!
