The USPTO designated the UNR Libraries as a Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRC) in 1983 to stimulate patent development, economic development, and technology transfer within Northern Nevada. The University of Nevada, Reno is currently the only PTRC in the state of Nevada. We are not legal professionals and cannot provide legal assistance, but we can answer many questions and point you to pertinent information from the USPTO.
