Free: Learn how to draft your patent application

Free at the Patent and Trademark Resource Center
The State of Arizona Research Library’s Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRC) will be hosting live webcasts of presentations from the USPTO’s San Jose Regional Office.
For those unfamiliar, the USPTO established regional offices in Denver, Dallas, Detroit and San Jose to give inventors, entrepreneurs, and small businesses the added benefit of a USPTO presence in every U.S. time zone. One way the San Jose office is reaching Arizona, is by partnering with the Patent and Trademark Resource Center to livestream events held at the San Jose Office.
Webcasts are live onsite at the PTRC, located in the Polly Rosenbaum Archives and History Building, 1901 W. Madison St. Phoenix Arizona 85009.
