About UNM Novell Users Group

A Brief History

UNMNUG was formed during the mid-summer to early-fall of 1987. Suffering between being nameless as well as several name changes during our first two or three years, we are still a Novell/NetWare User's International, recognized User's Group, UNMNUG. We have a small-to-medium sized membership with a regular showing of 6 to 15 attendees at our monthly meetings. This group was formed primarily to share ideas and technical know-how, with the emphasis on helping novices in the Novell networking field. We do currently include many varieties of networking, software, and computer issues at our monthly meetings as well as Novell.

We are affiliated with Novell Users International (NUI)
