Steenbock Library is a designated Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRC). Patent librarians provide patent and trademark information and searching assistance for the general public and the UW-Madison community.
Use the Patents and Trademarks Research Guide to get detailed information on patents and trademarks, searching tips and tutorials, online resources, and help for inventors and researchers.
Or go straight to our Patents and Trademarks Databases to start your search.
Steenbock offers patent and trademark assistance by phone (608-262-0696), email, or in person:
Librarians are available to assist researchers between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We recommend you make an appointment if you are new to patent searching or would like in-depth patent assistance.
