On this page, you will find patent searching information that is available only to Georgia Tech students, faculty and staff.
To help faculty, researchers, and students navigate worldwide patent information, the Georgia Tech Library has subscribed to two commercial patent databases, Derwent Innovation Index and InnovationQ Plus. If your invention/innovation is in chemistry related fields, you can also use SciFinder to locate chemical patent documents. Other free online databases include USPTO's Patent Public Search, EPO's Espacenet, and WIPO's PatentScope.

The Georgia Tech Library is a Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRC) and we provide a dedicated computer for patent search, in additional to many useful search tools. While all the online patent databases can be accessed anywhere, you can reserve the patent station online and come to the Price Gilbert Library to conduct your patent search.
