By Marketing and Communications | 10-02-2018

Two librarians from the United States Patent and Trademark Office will be on hand to provide valuable information on intellectual property and will also demonstrate how to perform patent and trademark searches.


“We are very excited to welcome speakers from the USPTO as they come to share their knowledge about patents and trademarks,” said Jared Hoppenfeld, Director of West Campus Library.  “It will be a great educational experience for attendees as well as a nice way to celebrate our 35th anniversary of being a Patent & Trademark Resource Center.”


Sessions throughout the day will include:

  • Overview of Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets
  • Conducting a Preliminary U.S. Patent Search Using USPTO Databases
  • Local Resource Panel
  • Conducting a Preliminary Federal Trademark Search Using USPTO Databases
  • Non-USPTO Solicitations and Invention Promotion Scams: Asking the Right Questions

The program is free and open to the public.
