Writing in a conversational, often humorous style, Wherry (director, Robert E. Riche Library, Pennsylvania State University-Altoona) overviews current intellectual property issues from the perspective of library staff and patrons. First, he explains how to distinguish among three different types of intellectual property (patents, copyright, and trademarks), then details issues related to each one, and gives instructions for searching patents and trademarks. Just for fun, there is an appendix summarizing intellectual property codes in verse. Another appendix lists contact information for patent and trademark depository libraries.
