There are several "client" special registers available to the SQL at the server, from values that can be established by the client; e.g. the Client Application Name via CURRENT CLIENT_APPLNAME

A stored procedure invoked by an application [or possibly invoked via an exit instead, if SQL is allowed and does not impair the SQL that would run in the connection and the library list was already established for the connection at that exit point] could establish the library list according to the application name.

_Special registers_
"A special register is a storage area that is defined for an application process by database manager and is used to store information that can be referenced in SQL statements.
The CURRENT CLIENT_APPLNAME special register specifies a VARCHAR(255) value that contains the value of the application name from the client information specified for the current connection.
