# Running libraries

Some of the public libraries in Developer can be run externally outside the UI. A separate archive of the libraries is included within the primary Developer .zip file, named axlibraries.zip. A README.md is included within the axlibraries.zip archive with installation instructions.

QHOME Directory containing q.k
QLIC Directory of q license file
AXLIBRARIES_HOME Path to the ax-libraries directory
AXIMPORT_PATH Colon separated paths from which q files can be imported
Once these variables are set, the libraries can be loaded into a native q process in the following way (substituting <library> with the library of your choice):
q $AXLIBRARIES_HOME/ws/<library>.q_  Loading Multiple libraries in Native q To load multiple libraries one can use either of the equivalent methods below (substituting <library> with the library of your choice): q q)system "l ",getenv[AXLIBRARIES_HOME],"/ws/<library>.q_"  q q)\l$AXLIBRARIES_HOME/ws/<library>.q_
