About Manx

Manx is a catalogue of manuals for old computers.

Many of these manuals can't be found by search engines because the manuals have been scanned but haven't been converted to text. Manx's search engine is currently limited to searching part numbers, titles and keywords of these manuals, though there are plans to search Tables of Contents and full text when these become available.

This catalogue mostly covers manufacturers of minicomputers and mainframes, or associated devices such as terminals and printers. Tiziano's 1000 BiT is the best catalogue for microcomputers.

Manx currently knows about 18297 manuals, 6127 of which are online, at 52 websites.

The list below shows the websites included in Manx. As Manx is still being built, you will find that not all of the holdings of these websites have been catalogued. If you know of manuals on other sites, please let me know about them. Even if a site only contains one manual, it is worth including. This list is ordered by date of inclusion in Manx.

Some of these sites are marked as being Low Bandwidth. They are either on a home DSL line, or the owner has indicated that they should not be mirrored with tools. It isn't a comment on the usefulness of the site!
