IP.com's Intellectual Property Library, which was formerly called the IP.com Global Patent Search, is a patent search system offered by the IP.com prior art database.
Users of this service can search collections of US published applications, US granted patents, Chinese (CN) invention patents, utility models, and designs, and the IP.com Prior Art Database. In addition, the service recently introduced a searchable full text collection of IBM Redbooks, which are manuals/troubleshooting guides for IBM product lines. The patent and prior art database collections can be searched together or separately, and search interfaces are available here.
More information about the IP.com Intellectual Property Library is provided in the Intellogist report on a related product, the IP.com Prior Art Database. See the patent content section, the full text search form section, and the hit list section for discussion and screenshots.
