San Diego Public Library

Gary Klockenga continues as the San Diego PTRC representative. Designated on January 26, 1984, the PTRC is located in the Government Documents Department the Central Library. Working in conjunction with our Innovation Center, we are very busy connecting with our local entrepreneurs. In conjunction with the San Diego Mayor’s Office, we were delighted to host the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks this past year at a seminar for the local IP community. We are planning a series of programs on IP in the coming year in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office, the local makerspace community, and a downtown business development agency. We are in the processing of adding a new librarian to our staff and we intend to send her to the annual PTRC training seminar.
