The UCR Library is a United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO)-designated Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRC).  

We can train you on how to do your own self-directed patent and trademark searching, however we cannot do patent or trademark searches for you, offer legal advice, or answer questions of a legal nature. Please contact a registered patent attorney or agent for help with specific legal questions about patentability and your application.

Location and Availability
