Patents 

Patents are  an important source of information. Various primary and secondary journals publish information regarding current patents in specific subject fields. Official gazetteers of  patent offices of various countries are valuable sources of patent information. A few examples of sources of patent information are:

Catalogue of American Standards. American Standards Association. 

British Standard Year Book. British Standards Institute. 

Most national standardizing bodies publish an annual list of their standards in a year book or a catalogue.
