DID YOU KNOW THIS!!
Enhancement on Patent Searching!
The Denver Public Library-Main Branch 13th & Broadway, NW corner-go to the 3rd floor to "Reference"
(south central side of building) and ask for access to "PubWEST" (they will help you) which is the enhanced patent search system that Patent Examiners use at the Patent Office in Washington DC-"PubWEST" has enhanced features for searching that are NOT available online-this is only available at the Denver Public Library.
Even More Important-Denver now has a United States Patent Office Branch Facility!!
The Denver United States Patent Office is located at the Byron G. Rogers Federal Building at 1961 Stout Street, Denver, CO 80294 - opened on June 30, 2014, and has a full fledged Public Search Room that will allow searching for both the EAST & WEST systems, so you can search as good in Denver as you can only search now in Alexandria, VA or Detroit, MI, i.e. being the same system that the Patent Office Examiners use. Also the Denver Patent Office will facilitate to a limited extent Examiner Interviews. The Denver Patent Office could eventually grow to over 1,000 people.
