The NAUG® AppleWorks Forum Archive
The Archive of the AppleWorks Forum: The Monthly Publication of the National AppleWorks Users Group
AppleWorks Forum was the official newsletter of the National AppleWorks Users Group (NAUG), dedicated to all things AppleWorks on the Apple II. Ten volumes of AWF were published, beginning in August, 1986 and ending December, 1995.
In late 2007, I was given a nearly complete set of the newsletters, and having recently wrapped up the Computist scans, I was looking for a new project. In early 2008, I contacted Warren Williams, one of the newsletter’s publishers seeking permission to scan and post the entire set. After a few emails back and forth, Warren and Cathleen Merritt (the other AWF Big Cheese, so to speak) agreed and scanning began. As usual, with a project like this, it took me much longer than I’d anticipated to complete. I finally wrapped up the issues I had in April, 2011. You can download the scans as .zip archives below.
The collection of scans is incomplete. I’ve had offers from a few people to lend me the missing issues, but so far, this is all I have. If and when I get the other materials, I’ll post them here.
Currently, I’m missing the following issues. If you have any of the missing issues and can provide us with the 600DPI scan of the issue, I’d greatly appreciate it.
- Volume 2, Issues 2 and 8
- Volume 9, Issues 2 and 6 (actually need 1-10 in high quality)
- Volume 10, Issues 2, 7 and 8
Here are the scans, as well as an index, and an archive containing a bunch of NAUG’s public domain disks.
- Volume 1 (.zip, 45.3mb)
- Volume 2 (.zip, 85.2mb)
- Volume 3 (.zip, 196.9mb)

NAUG on Disk Collection
From January 1990 until December 1995, the National AppleWorks Users Group (NAUG) published NAUG on Disk. This 3-1/2″ floppy based series was issued 12 times per year from January 1990 until December 1992, and 10 times per year from January 1993 until December 1995. There were 66 issues in all.
In addition to containing all the written text of The AppleWorks Forum, (an enormous amount of AppleWorks-specific information) NAUG on Disk included many templates, macros, updaters, dictionaries, databases, utility programs, shareware software, public domain software, and several technical articles that were never published in the pages of The AppleWorks Forum.
Most of the files are best viewed from with AppleWorks itself, or from within a program capable of reading AppleWorks files.

Hugh also sent along this PDF index of all the NAUG issues. He created this PDF using his TimeOut Print2PDF, an excellent AppleWorks add-on that lets you generated PDF files directly from AppleWorks! You can read about the details of the TimeOut tool in this comp.sys.apple2 Usenet thread.
