Public reading room The reading room provides the public with access to national, European and international IP documentation so that they can perform their own searches. PATLIB staff advises the public how to search and how to retrieve relevant documents. Visitors may search IP databases free-of-charge using the workstations provided.
Search services The PATLIB centre carries out IP searches for the public. This service may range from relatively basic bibliographic searches (e.g. for a patent number, an applicant's or inventor's name, or the legal status of an application) to highly sophisticated searches concerning technical areas (state-of-the-art, novelty and infringement searches). Explanatory information, comments and interpretations of the search results may be provided with the search reports.
Provision of intellectual property documentation The PATLIB centre provides copies of IP documents (paper and electronic documents)
User training The PATLIB centre organises training sessions (seminars, workshops) concerning IP rights, databases, search techniques and other IP related issues.
Patent clinics This service is provided in collaboration with local professional representatives (patent attorneys). The role of the PATLIB centre is to co-ordinate bilateral consultancy sessions between the attorney and the client and to provide the necessary information background (e.g. relevant documents and preparatory searches. Legal advice is given solely by the attorney.
IP strategy development With this service PATLIB centres assist their clients in developing and implementing their IP strategies, e.g. what to protect, where and how, with whom to co-operate, etc.
