TENTATIVE PLANS DRAWN FOR 1951
Steps in patent processing, abstract services,
chemical nomenclature, communication of chemical
information, and mechanical aids to documentation
will be discussed in symposia held at 1951 meetings
of the Division of Chemical Literature, according
to preliminary plans announced by J.W.
Perry, chairman of the Division's program committee.
The first two subjects will form the basis for the
Spring, 1951, meeting, while the others will appear
on the Fall, 1951, program. Efforts are already
being made to insure that the latter program is
the best the Division has ever had, since the 1951
Fall Meeting of the American Chemical Society will
celebrate the Society's Diamond Jubilee and on
that occasion the International Union of Pure and
Applied Chemistry will be meeting jointly with
STEPS IN PATENT PROCESSING
The symposium on steps in patent processing,
according to present plans, will be concerned
with the steps taken by various companies in developing
patents to cover ideas, research results,
and new developments worked out by their employees.
Particular attention will be directed to the need
for close co-operation between the chemical inventor
and the attorney during the time when the patent
application is being drafted. The program will
also include, though not place emphasis on, the
need for continued co-operation between the chemical
inventor and the patent attorney during the
prosecution of the patent application in the
At present, this symposium is being visualized
as a half-day session, under the chairmanship of
Mrs. G.A. Munafo of the Texaco Development Corp.
(135 E. 42nd St., New York 16).
In addition to including a general review paper
on existing abstracting and indexing services,
this program (as now envisioned) will direct
specific attention to: (1) industrial abstracting,
that is, abstracting carried out by individual
companies for the information of their research
and other staffs; papers will probably be included
from four or five companies in different fields,
such as petroleum, rubber, chemicals, etc.; and

such as Chemical Abstracts, Engineering Index,
and abstract sections of various journals (such as
the Petroleum Refiner, Chemical Industries, etc.).
Plans also call for a paper summarizing the
abstracting services of government agencies, such
as the Bureau of Mines, Atomic Energy Commission,
Office of Naval Research, etc. It is hoped
that it may be possible to include a paper on
foreign abstracting services and periodicals.
