Data set name
The name of the SYSLIB data sets in which your copybooks reside. The first entry is populated with the copybook name specified on the Template Workbench panel. Any libraries previously identified are also displayed. Up to 11 additional SYSLIB data sets can be specified (total of 12 SYSLIB data sets). Up to 12 data set libraries can be specified. The data sets may be PDSs, PDSEs, CA-Panvalet libraries, or other library management system libraries. You can specify multiple PDSs, PDSEs, CA-Panvalet and other library management system libraries but they must be either all PDSs or PDSEs, or all CA-Panvalet, or all the same library management system libraries. You cannot mix library types.

All copybooks to be included in a template must be of the same language, that is, all COBOL or all PL/1.

Library members may not be packed by ISPF.
