The library list helps programs locate objects on the system. If a program or a user
doesn't specify an object by qualified name (i.e., library/object), the system searches the
library list to locate the object. Standardized library lists can be specified by name, or the
QUSRLIBL and QSYSLIBL system values can be used. The system searches only the
libraries included in the library list on the Display Library List screen to locate objects the
user has requested.
To display the Display Library List screen (Figure 2.5), perform the following steps:
1.Type DSPLIBL on the command line.
2.Press Enter.

Figure 2.5: Display Library List Screen

The Display Library List screen lists the library search path. The library name, type, and
text description are displayed. The operating system uses standard abbreviations for
library types. A system library is identified by SYS. A production library is identified by
PRD. A user's current library is identified by CUR, and other user libraries are identified
by USR.


The libraries are searched in the sequence in which they are
listed. If two objects have the same name but are located in
different libraries (and both libraries are included in the
library list), the search ends when the first object with the
specified name is located in the library placed highest in the
library list.

Option 5 offers an easy way to determine whether an object is located in a library. When
you specify this option for a particular library, a list of all the objects in the library and the
library name are displayed. This display is functionally similar to the DOS directory list.

Using the library list doesn't prevent users from accessing objects in libraries not
included in their library lists. If a user has authorization and specifies the correct name of


any library, the operating system searches the library for the listed object. To prevent
unauthorized use of a library or other objects, object authority must be limited for each
object that requires protection.

To exit the Display Library List screen, press function key F3.
