Optional Add-ons

IHS Knowledge Collections

A comprehensive online library of authoritative engineering and technical reference content - aggregated, accessible and curated for you in one place. Providing access to the most trusted titles from the leading technical publishers, Knowledge Collections helps engineers quickly make the best decisions at each product lifecycle stage. Find technical publications from McGraw-Hill, Springer, Wiley, Industrial Press, Maney, Oxford University Press and many other trusted sources.

Research Assistant

This content analysis and research tool allows you to quickly review large bodies of information to discover answers and knowledge. Graphical and tabular tools, including more than 70 intelligent filters, or "content lenses," perform like a "virtual subject matter expert," guiding you through content and posing questions that you might not think to ask to help you obtain highly precise answers to your queries. For example, view definitions, advantages, disadvantages, applications, materials, causes and effects, parts, functions, interactions and more related to a topic. Also allows you to index content on publicly available third-party web sites through the Research Assistant Cloud Services.

IHS Patent Solutions

The IHS Patent Collection provides full-text searchability for more than 60 million patents, with advanced search capabilities that allow users to quickly identify content that matches their query, view dynamic summaries in their native language, and view the full-text patent in its original language, in HTML or PDF.

IHS Patent Intelligence, available as an optional additional capability, leverages the same collection of 60 million patents but also provides a packaged set of analytics that enables organizations to extract competitive intelligence from the patents.

Expert Index Collections Capabilities
