What's New

  • New search function for the z/OS V2R3 library. The search scope catalog function has been integrated into Knowledge Center. The function is only available in the z/OS V2R3 library today, but based on your feedback we will expand the function to other versions of z/OS documentation.  To give it a try, start with the z/OS V2R3 Knowledge Center landing page and use the "Scope" pull-down on the search dialog box to narrow your search to an element, a feature or an individual book within that element or feature. Then after some time trying it, please use the Knowledge Center feedback button to send us your comments.
