Book News Annotation:
Patents have only recently been recognized for their value as a source of scientific and technical information. After an introduction to patents, their historical development and current characteristics, this comprehensive treatment of patent sources is a description of the uses to which patents can be put followed by details of their availability from around the world and the many printed, online, and CD-ROM services designed to make them accessible. Searching techniques and strategies are given to facilitate the use of both subject files and those covering patents exclusively.
