    • The Mathematical Sciences & Patent and Trademark Resources How to be a Fluent Generalist John J Meier Science Librarian Penn State University
    • Overview• The Mathematical Sciences – Math Resources – Mathematical Statistics Resources – Related and Multidiciplinary Fields• Patents and Trademarks – In the Library – For the University and Community – Resources
    • The Mathematical Sciences• Foundation to other scientific disciplines• Pure vs Applied Mathematics• Mathematical Subject Classification (MSC)
    • Math Resources• MathSciNet• Zentralblatt MATH• Web of Science/Scopus• Arxiv.org• Professional Societies – American Mathematical Society (AMS) – Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)
    • Mathematical Statistics Resources• Also use MathSciNet, Web of Science, Scopus, Arxiv.org• Current Index to Statistics (CIS)• PubMed• Professional Societies – American Statistical Association (ASA) – International Statistical Institute (ISI)
    • Related and Multidisciplinary Fields• Mathematical Physics• Astronomical Statistics• Engineering• Information Technology• ETCBottom Line: Interdisciplinary subject where Generalists like librarians can be key
    • Patents and Trademarks• Intellectual Property information• Government Documents• Patent and Trademark Depository Libraries
    • Patents and Trademarks in the Library• Record of Patents and Trademarks – Print or Microfilm or CD or DVD• Books on Patents and Trademarks – Business, Science, Searching, Inventor resources• Legal Information – Case law defines much of the interpretation of patent and trademark statutes
    • Patents and Trademarks for the University and the Community• Inventors – Students – Graduate Students, Faculty and Research Staff – Community Residents• Researchers – Science and Engineering – History – Genealogy
