Begin here. Search this by a word to try to identify the class and subclass into which a patent might fall. Then use these numbers in the Manual of Classification.
With the class and subclass found, then search for all the patents in that class and subclass to all identify patents on that topic. Definitions supply much more information about what is covered within a specific class and subclass. They also provide good cross references to related classes and subclasses.
