If something was not public on it's time because IBM copyright was on it, I can take a chance and ask the IBM lawyers to authorize the republishing since now it is obsolete documentation. I had good results with some old books and courseware.

Please check your basements, libraries, attic, if you have some of this, or something else please contact me.

Hi.

I just from IBM Permission to republish on the EDM/2 Wiki and the OS2World Wiki these documents:

    Control Program Programming Guide and Reference
    GPI Guide and Reference
    Presentation Manager Programming Guide and Reference
    System Object Model Programming Guide
    System Object Model Programming Reference
    Workplace Shell Programming Reference
    Workplace Shell Programming Guide

Even that is not a great breakthrough because it is already online it is good to have it legally available as a backup. I will put it in several formats (PDF, DOCX, ODT and INF) in the next days.

I'm still looking for the more difficult material to find, any OS/2 IBM Courseware (posted before). If anybody found some of this, please let me know to scan it and request formal permission to republish it.

The courseware I was able to find (two courses / OS/2 Warp Server for e-business and OS/2 2.1 for Software Developers) has already been published on the OS2World Wiki with permission.

Hi

Just to remind everybody that I'm still looking for any hints about the IBM material posted on the first page.
If anybody found any of this printed material please let me know. We can ask IBM formal permission to re-post it online.

Hi

There is still a lot of IBM OS/2 material a was not able to find. I will like to add today to my missing list:

- GG24-4165-00 – 1993 – Experiences with SOMobjects: Distributed System Object Model
- GG24-4357-00  - July 1994 - SOMobjects: A Practical Introduction to SOM and DSOM

Hi.

Yesterday I got permission from IBM to republish the articles from the "Personal Systems Magazine" that was stored online. (reference). The only difference on this permission is that IBM can not be 100% sure they own the copyrights of it, so they agreed to be republished if belongs to IBM, but in case someone complains I will need to take down the article.

I will be splitting the articles between the OS2World Wiki and EDM/2 (if the article is development related), but I will start first by organizing the articles on this page: "Personal Systems Magazine"

But I have a little problem here, I was only able to find the "online articles" so I'm missing several articles of the printed edition. If someone has a copy of the printed magazines, please scan it or send it to me so I can ask permission to republish the complete issue.

Let's keep working little by little to have as much as possible OS/2 documentation online !!!

Howdy Howdy...

I do collect alot of IBM software, books & computers from the 80's as I used to design clean space for IBM along the Hudson and Machine rooms at most of their facilities along the Eastern Seaboard. I have for sale an old catalog featuring OS/2 shareware...TIA jon
