How to request a patent and trademark librarian to visit your school, office, or group in Saint Louis, Missouri?

Throughout the year we often get requests from school teachers, intellectual property university professors and librarians, businesses, and others to visit and give a two hour presentation about patents and trademarks to their staff. The opportunity to do outreach is very exciting! It provides patent and trademark librarians to share information about inventions and how to request a patent or trademark. 

If you are interested to have the patent and trademark librarian come to visit your school or workplace in the Saint Louis proximity, please send an email to sfraser@slpl.org.  Include your name, contact information, who your audience is, how many in your audience, and when you are interested to have a visit from the patent and trademark librarian.

Whether you are learning about patents and trademarks for the first time, or an old pro, there is always something new to learn about searching for patents and trademarks. Please keep in mind when you request a visit that we have to schedule it into our calendar. It could take as little as a fews days, to a few months, depending on staffing and time required to prepare a presentation.

Looking forward to teaching others about United States Patent and Trademark searches.
