About the UNLV Libraries Patent & Trademark Resource Center Powered by SWITCH

Patent and Trademark Resource Center logo

The Patent & Trademark Resource Center (PTRC) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is located on the first floor of the Lied Library and within the Wiener-Rogers Law Library. The PTRC provides access to:

  • PubWEST and PubEAST - The public versions of the databases used by patent examiners, which feature superior search functionality.
  • Patent & trademark books as well as brochures sent to us by the USPTO
  • Trained staff here to answer your questions about patent and trademark research

While PTRC staff do not conduct patent and trademark searches, we can provide instruction on the search process to individuals, groups, and classes.  Appointments are recommended.  

You may contact either of the following directly for assistance:
