Patent and Trademark Resource Center Appointments Now Available

By Raymond W. RSS Fri, November 3, 2023

Are you an inventor, artist, entrepreneur, or small business owner interested in learning how to protect your idea and business assets? The Free Library of Philadelphia's Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRC) is offering 45-minute one-on-one appointments with a Patent and Trademark Librarian.

These appointments require an email address and a computer with Zoom capabilities. In-person appointments are also available.

You will learn the four different types of Intellectual Property (IP) that can protect what you have invented or created and search techniques for existing patents and trademarks. You can sign up for an appointment by filling out our interest form. A confirmation email will be sent to you in one–two business days after completing the form. You will receive a Zoom link in advance of your appointment.

Please note: We cannot give legal advice (assisting in completing application forms, advising what type of Intellectual Property to apply for, or offering an opinion as to the likelihood of receiving a patent or trademark).

Please email with any questions.
