New Guide to Using Patent Information from WIPO

WIPO recently published a new 44-page guide to using patent information.
The guide explains what a patent is, the information contained in a patent document, where patent information can be found, and how to use basic patent search strategies. Almost half of the guide is devoted to explaining how patent information can be used.
It's a well-written, concise introduction to the benefits of using patent information.
