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

The Patent and Trademark Resource Center is on the first floor of the Orbach Science Library. PubEAST and PubWEST are available by appointment. Please see our PTRC Guide for service hours.
