                                FOREWORD

This sixth edition directory is intended for your use in locating organizations that provide
assistance to inventors and entrepreneurs. For assistance providers, it may help locate
others that can supplement the services you provide.

The first part of the directory is a matrix listing all the organizations by state and
showing the services each provides, as well as the fields in which they have expertise.
Following the matrix is a listing of each organization’s address, contact person, phone,
fax, and e-mail, and the cost (if any) associated with their service.

In this addition of the directory, we have included only organizations that indicated they
were state, federal, or non-profit. While we recognize there are a number of for-profit
entities that provide valuable services to inventors, we can no longer include them in
the directory. The information contained in this directory came from datasheets
voluntarily filled out by each organization. Neither the Department of Energy, nor
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory specifically endorses any of these organizations
or their services. This Guidebook is intended as a resource directory, not as an
endorsement. The user of this directory must take full responsibility for checking
the credentials of any source of information or assistance.
