Salt Lake City, UT

University of Utah, Marriott Library

The Salt Lake City PTDL is one of the collections of the University of Utah’s Marriott Library. The Marriott Library was first designated a PDL in 1984 (Note –Trademarks were not yet deposited at that time, so there was no ‘T’ as in ‘PTDL’). In addition to our PTDL depository, the Marriott Library has been a federal Government Printing Office (GPO) depository since 1893; a U.S. Department of Energy depository; United Nations, European Union, World Trade Organization and UNESCO depository; and depository for the State of Utah.

Evansdale Library, West Virginia University

Evansdale Library at West Virginia University has been a depository since 1991. The Evansdale Library serves Engineering, Agriculture, Forestry and Consumer Sciences, Education, Creative Arts and Physical Education. Independent as well as university inventors come to the Evansdale Library for assistance. I continue to work with the WVU Office of Technology Transfer who routinely sends university inventors to meet with me.

Minneapolis, MN

Minneapolis Central Library, Hennepin County Library System

It was pretty much business as usual at the Minneapolis Central Library of the Hennepin County Library system. I presented my patent talk each month, and although the audience is smaller than it used to be, the attendees are very focused and eager to learn about patents and patent searching.

A local patent attorney was back again with his “Traps and Pitfalls of Intellectual Property” class that he does on a quarterly basis. Entrepreneurs and small businesses really find the class very helpful.
