I don't think the data is that well spread out there.

Ie. Bitsavers.org's collection is pretty meager.

manualslib claims to have more, but that is a subscription service.

I can't find much information about it on www.microfocus.com (the
current holder of the remnants of Novell)

If the docs are spiral bound, its usually pretty easy to pull the
pages out of the spiral bound and feed through a sheet
scanner. Perfect bound usually I turn to a paper guillotine. I would
suspect most of it is from a time when documentation wasn't electronic
yet, but yet isn't quite old enough for people to seriously archive it yet.

I think it would be worth saving somehow.

Novell Coworking bought the building my office is in. I chuckle at all
the promotion of Novell around me whenever I see their logo. :-)
