Reference Collection of U.S. Patents Available 
for Public Use in Patent Depository Libraries


The following libraries, designated as Patent Depository Libraries 
(PDLs) receive current issues of U.S. Patents and maintain collections 
of earlier issued patents.  The scope of these collections varies from 
library to library, ranging from patents of only recent years to all or
most of the patents issued since 1790.

These patent collections, which are organized in patent number sequence, 
are available for use by the public free of charge.  Each of the PDLs, 
in addition, offers supplemental reference publications of the U.S. 
Patent Classification System, including the Manual of Classification, 
Index to the U.S. Patent Classification, Classification Definitions, 
and provides technical staff assistance in their use to aid the public, 
in gaining effective access to information contained in patents. 

CASSIS (Classification and Search Support Information System); which 
provides direct, on-line access to Patent and Trademark Office data, 
is available at all PDLs.  Facilities for making paper copies of patents 
from either microfilm or paper collections are generally provided for a 
fee.

Since there are variations in the scope of patent collections among the 
PDLs and in their hours of service to the public, anyone contemplating 
use of the patents at a particular library is urged to contact that 
library, in advance, about its collection and hours in order to avert 
possible inconvenience.
