GUIDE International

GUIDE (Guidance of Users of Integrated Data-Processing Equipment) was a users' group for users of IBM computer systems.

GUIDE was formed in 1956; it was incorporated in 1970 as a non-profit organization under the name of GUIDE International Corporation.[1] At its peak GUIDE had a membership of around 2,000 companies and institutions.[2]

In 1994 in Europe GUIDE merged with the European arm of SHARE, another major IBM users' group forming GSE (Guide Share Europe).[2]

In the US GUIDE ceased operation in September 1999. Although the groups did not merge, many of GUIDE's activities and projects were taken over by SHARE, and GUIDE suggested to its members that they join SHARE. In August 2000, SHARE took over the domain name.
