Patents - An Information Resource.
ADVISORY GROUP FOR AEROSPACE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE (FRANCE)
Pagination or Media Count:
Patents, an important part of the total spectrum of scientific and technical information, are often overlooked by the information community and the scientific and technical community. The purpose of this Lecture Series is to make these communities more aware of the importance of patents to the research, development and engineering efforts in each country. The focus of the lecture series will be first on the wide range of applications for information from patents and second on the methods that can be used for acquiring that information. Methods used for indexing and classifying will be discussed, the various available abstracting services will be compared and techniques for searching, including automated systems, will be described. Participants, thus having a better understanding and appreciation of the bibliographic methods that are used for the control of patent literature, will be in a better position to use this valuable information resource.
