This is what I've picked up along the way, and it may be wrong, misheard, or inaccurate, but here goes:

The HP contributed library stuff was kept by HP until they decided that there wasn't really a market for it. Then they sold it (?) to another company that seemed to lose interest in it. From there it appears to have been lost.

That software catalogue probably is the one that lists products from various third party developers too?

Well, they probably discontinued the software, or ported it to other calculators and/or computers, or the need for it disappeared.

It's only 26 years, try looking them up in the phone book :-)
