This week Landon IP launched a new website, Intellogist, which hosts a wide variety of tools for patent and technical literature searching. Features of Intellogist include:
– an interactive world map of patent search resources, including government office and private search databases;
– customizable charts that compare the features of various free and fee-based patent search resources;
– full reports on publicly available databases of patents and non-patent literature; and
– links to many technical research resources, grouped by technical field.
Intellogist also includes a best practices wiki and a discussion forum, where users can share ideas and provide feedback about various resources for technical and patent searching.
