Why have the DB2 for z/OS technical resources pages changed?
The tables of PDF books and corresponding information center links have moved to pages in the Information Management Software for z/OS Solutions Information Center. The information center is the most convenient location for finding information about DB2 for z/OS and related products. We hope that this change will help you find the information you need more quickly and efficiently.
The DB2 for z/OS information is optimized for delivery in web-based formats, like the information center. The information center provides robust search features and content that is, in some cases, more current than the PDF versions.
However, we understand that many customers rely on PDF format. We continue to support and provide access to the PDF files from the information center.
Where can I find the tables of PDF books?
These tables have moved to the following information center topics:
In addition to providing links for downloading the PDF files, these tables show where you can find the topics in the Contents view of the information center.
Where can I find the PDF links now?
You can find the PDF links in the PDF column of the tables in the information center. Also, you can find PDF links at the bottom of most information center topics.
Where can I find the old "HTML" links now?
The information center links are now in the Location in the information center column. The links show the titles of the target topics instead of "HTML." They also include "breadcrumb trails" that show how to find the topic in the Contents view of the information center.

The following pages provide useful tutorials and advice about how to use the information center more effectively:
When will the old technical resources pages be removed?
Not immediately. These pages will remain in place to serve customers who have existing bookmarks, to provide a place where you can quickly find the Program Directories and other information resources, and to provide links to the information center.
However, the individual pages might be removed after the end of the lifecycle of each relevant release.

The PDF files and BookManager books will continue to be available at this page to support extended service contracts: DB2 for z/OS Version 8 Technical Resources
