British Library Opens New Intellectual Property Center in London
According to an article in the June 25, 2004 issue of Managing Information, "The British Library holds the UK's patent archive containing over 50 million patents collected since 1855. The collection covers patents from across the world including China, Japan, India, Russia and Brazil, starting at Patent No. 1 for numerous countries. Many of the patents from these emerging economies are not available online, and the British Library is one of the few places in the world where you can see all of them. A range of other resources are also available including free access to the Derwent Innovations Index of patent data, electronic databases and supporting literature.
Among the business material on offer is one of the world's largest collections of market research reports, high value online business databases and a team of information experts to guide users to the information they need."
