Thomson Delphion Adds German Patent Collection

Sep 12, 2003

Thomson Delphion now offers searching of full-text patent specifications from the German national collection. The collection's main claims date back to 1968 and include applications, granted patents, and utility models. The integration of German data from INPADOC with the German national collection data, and the presentation of both on the Delphion Integrated View, are intended to allow users to see legal status and family data in the same view as they see the text, claims, and other bibliographic information. The German national collection is also fully integrated into the Delphion workflow including: full text German language searching; integration into the cross-collection searching process; and inclusion in analytical and productivity tool functionality.
