Alexandria, VA (01/31/11) — Landon IP, Inc., the leading single-source provider for professional patent-related services, is excited to announce the formal launch of its Reference Desk, which centralizes our knowledge of the best manual and electronic sources for conducting prior art searches of global technical literature.
Landon IP’s CEO, David Hunt, says, “Landon IP has always provided excellent service to our legal and corporate customers based on our in-depth expertise in patent and non-patent literature searching and intellectual property research and document retrieval. With the establishment of our Reference Desk, we are ensuring that our customers continue to benefit from the best research capabilities available anywhere.”
The Reference Desk will be led by Kristin Whitman, Landon IP’s professional librarian and a senior contributor to Intellogist® and the Intellogist Blog. The establishment of the Reference Desk will facilitate the delivery of the highest-quality research support to our customers by providing internal access to a team focused on:
- Digging deeper and further on critical patent search and information retrieval projects
- Consulting more — and more obscure — patent and non-patent literature sources
- Ensuring that Landon IP’s search analysts are aware of, and appropriately using, cutting-edge search tools and best practices
- Providing centralized knowledge management and electronic resource management
According to Librarian Kristin Whitman, “Our customers won’t be working directly with the Reference Desk at Landon IP, but they will benefit every day from our behind-the-scenes support of Landon IP’s global patent searching, non-patent literature searching, and information retrieval projects. We are committed to leading the industry in conducting the most thorough, comprehensive searches possible to find the documents our customers need.”
