Need to see if your idea is new and not published anywhere? Think of protecting your intellectual property before showing your invention to the public? Want to learn how to do a patent search before filing a patent application for your idea? The PTRC offers free consultation and patent search classes.
Patent related reference books are available for reading at this location. USPTO brochures and other handouts are available for pick up. Two patent workstations are dedicated for patent searching. Additional resources include access to USPTO's PubEAST, PubWEST, and CASSIS. Please stop by the Library Service Desk at 1 West and ask a staff member on duty.
