This book discusses the combined fields of Intellection Property and Information Science. At this crossroads of these two disciplines are lawyers, educators, intellectual property specialists, searchers, librarians, and consultants, each requiring a lengthy list of skills necessary for the job. The results of the work they do is used for business and legal decisions across many sectors of our society, including industry, academia, government, and non-profits, to name a few. This book originated from the American Chemical Society (ACS) Symposium entitled "IP to IP: Intellection Property for Information Professionals", presented in Washington DC on August 19th, 2009. It was organized to highlight the specialty training and education required to work in this field. The book is targeted towards Information Scientists learning about Intellectual Property. Traditional education sources such as universities are represented, and are specialty offerings from the pharmaceutical sector and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The original six sessions from the Symposium are included in this text as separate chapters: Education and Certification of Patent Information Professionals in Europe; The PERI Patent Information Course; Law Librarianship: Exploring current trends in the 21st century; The USPTO: Education of the Inventor Community; Copyright Basics; Recent Developments in Patent Reform. Additional chapters and content have been added to more fully develop this text. Although this Symposium captured several intellectual property topics with current information for mid-2009, this content should still prove to be a valuable resource to the reader in future years. This book is an resource for students or others looking to take the next step into intellectual property as a new career choice.
