Before we had our proxy server,  we put into Internet Explore an illegal proxy server setting denying all Internet access on that machine. Then we created an exceptions list of sites they would be allowed to access.  I have never tried this in another browser so I don't know if that would work but it might be something to investigate.

We have several PCs which are reserved as OPACs (PCs which can only be used to access the library catalogue). We use Public Web Browser to restrict access to the catalogue. We often use low spec computers for this purpose.

We have the idea of making these PCs boot from a USB pen that uses Linux. We would have to find a browser, like PWB, that can be configured to restrict access. At present we use WinU to display a button that launches our ‘Library Catalogue’. We would need something similar that will run on Linux.

I am writing to enquire if any library uses Linux for their OPACs. I would appreciate any advice.
