Ann Arbor, MI

The Ann Arbor MI PTRC is located in the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library (AAEL) in the Duderstadt Center at the University of Michigan. AAEL houses the Art & Design, Architecture & Urban Planning and Engineering Collection. The reference staff here is available to answer questions in person, phone or email from students, staff, faculty and public.

I updated the three (Patent indexes, Trademark indexes and Official Gazette) collections in Hathi trust. Patent indexes has 165 volumes from Annual Report of the Commissioner of and Index of patents issued from the United States Patent Office. Trademark indexes has 53 trademark index volumes and the Official Gazette has 1808 volumes.

As in previous years we continued our work with Engineering and Business students on patents. I also worked with the tech transfer office on campus and did an instruction session for them.
