 IBM ANNOUNCES NEW TITLES FOR GROWING OS/2 LIBRARY;
 ENHANCED SUPPORT FOR AUTHORS
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM) today announced that the library of books from various publishers about its new OS/2 (See Note 1) Version 2.0 operating system will grow this spring with the addition of new titles on a variety of software related subjects. These "how-to" books will help users, developers, and programmers take advantage of IBM's new OS/2 2.0, an advanced 32-bit operating system capable of exploiting the power of the 386SX and higher PCs. This advanced platform offers true multi-tasking and will provide a broad range of applications which operate in the DOS and Windows (See Note 2), as well as 16- and 32-bit OS/2 environments.
 Among the new titles to be published by Van Nostrand Reinhold are: Writing OS/2 2.0 Device Drivers in C, by Steven J. Mastrianni; Now That I have OS/2 2.0 on My Computer -- What Do I Do Next?, by Steven Levenson; Integrating Applications With OS/2 2.0, by William H. Zack; and Learning to Program OS/2 2.0 Presentation Manager by Example: Putting the Pieces Together, by Stephen A. Knight.
 Said Dianne Littwin, senior editor, computer science, Van Nostrand Reinhold publishers, "Our review of both the books and the market for IBM's OS/2 2.0 convinced us that we had a successful combination and an opportunity to develop a library of important texts on this exciting new technology."
 In addition, due from Que, an imprint of Prentice Hall Computer Publishing, is: Using OS/2 2.0, by Barry Nance.
 IBM support for the growing list of OS/2 2.0 authors includes membership in its Developer Assistance Program, with toll-free online technical assistance as well as providing beta code for a head start in understanding the new version.
 "We are seeing the momentum build for books on every aspect of OS/2 2.0," said Ted Salamone, Independent Vendor program manager for IBM. "The expanding library of OS/2 titles is a tremendous resource for users and we have made the commitment to support authors with the firsthand knowledge that they need."
