There are 13 local Patent Information centres across the UK whose experienced staff can offer practical assistance on intellectual property. Also known as Patent Libraries (PATLIBs), these centres provide businesses and individuals with local access to patent, trade mark, designs and copyright information.
Services can include free consultations, access to IPO literature and information, advice on searching, workshops and seminars. Contact your local PATLIB centre to find out how it can help you.
The centres are part of a Europe-wide network of patent information centres.
