The way I do it is through ISMF on TSO. From the ISMF primary option menu, select 2 (Volume), then 1 (DASD), then on the Volume Selection Entry Panel, select source as 2 (New list), then Specify source of the new list as 2 (SMS), put in Type of Volume List as you want, and put * in Volume Serial Number. Hit enter and get back the list. If you're looking for something in particular, hit PF8 instead of enter and there are more selection criteria available to restrict the list.
