Finding Books

Usually patents are identified by a citation or a citing reference or by using one of the many patent indexes or databases arranged by the jurisdiction that has issued it.  Books about how to use and find patents, how to apply for one, and general information can be found in Library Search or MELVYL by searching under the subject headings:
  • subject - patents
  • Patent laws and legislation - United States
  • Patents
  • Patent and government-developed inventions - United States
  • Patent extensions - United States
  • For Trademarks, it is recommended to search under:
  • Trademarks
  • Business names
