Special Denver Metro Area Inventors Meeting on will be announced in the future being from 6PM to 8PM, for Learning How to do a Top Quality Patent Search (note this class is repeated every quarter or so, due to its popularity);

Speaker: Training staff at the Denver Public Library

Topic:  Hands on (on computer terminal) training for PubWEST  - US Patent Office patent & patent application publication search tool.   In addition, the Denver Public Library will have the capability of the US Patent Office PubEAST system, which is the search tool for accessing multiple patent and publication databases worldwide, if you learn this system PubEAST and PubWESTyou will have the same capability as an Examiner at the US Patent Office for quality searching.   We will also discuss the world wide patent technology classification system termed the Cooperative Patent Classification or CPC system this will make worldwide searching much more efficient as every patent office in the world will have the same technology classification system.

 Speaker:  Time: 6:00PM to 8:00PM

ggggggggggggIn conjunction with our affiliation with the Denver Public Library and in accordance with the Rocky Mountain Inventors Association (RMIA) mission to be an inventors non-profit educational organization we are offering training for you the inventor to become a top quality searcher and to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars, so why pay for someone else to do your search when you can learn to do a top quality search yourself, especially if you have numerous ideas you want to check out search wise. 

The location is at the Denver Public Library-Main Branch 13th & Broadway, NW corner-go to the 3rd floor to "Reference" located on the (south central side of building) map link here 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 locally at the Denver Public Library and the Denver Patent Office (when it opens this July), this is the best searching you can do, as it is the same system that the Patent Office Examiners use (note this is NOT available online)-so if you are serious about doing a quality search, this is a must attend-meeting size is limited to 12 people who can have "hands-on" learning on a terminal, we can accommodate more than 12 people, but you will just be able to watch the training, we will have another class if needed.      Click here to learn more about how PubWEST is superior as compared to general online search.   Note that for the training class only-go up to the 4th floor directly above the previously identified "Reference" to the small computer training room for the class, however, for just using the PubWEST on your own, then you go to the 3rd floor Reference.   On parking, area street parking on Acoma, Bannock, and 12th, as the street parking meters are free after 6PM, you may have to pay for 15 minutes at 25 cents, or you can park in the Art Museum garage for $4 for the evening-enter the garage on 12th between Broadway and Acoma.
