ABSTRACT: Magnetic Levitation Bibliographic System (Maglev) is a software program which primarily consists of a Keyword List and numerous Patent Profiles with Abstracts (Patent). A user can enter a word from the Keyword list or utilize the Adhoc search feature and the program will search each Patent and each Patent title in the system. The system will then list all of the Patents which contain the Keyword requested. Most of the commands and executions in the Maglev system are simple to follow, however, an explanation is necessary to properly operate the Maglev System. This manual provides the instructions on how to search for Patents using the Keyword list, search for patents utilizing the Adhoc search feature, keep track of search levels, add or modify words in the Keyword List, add Patents to the system, and generate printouts of the requested information.
