A provisional patent application can be a useful way of establishing a filing date for your invention while you develop the idea, conduct your patentability search, or draft your nonprovisional utility patent application. For more information, check out the article: The Provisional Patent Application: Is it for Me? in the January 2017 issue of The Inventor’s Eye!

A significant group of valuable Arizona historical record collections, provided through a partnership with the Arizona State Archives and Ancestry.com, are now available on-line and free to residents of the State of Arizona through Ancestry.com. This includes the Arizona territorial census records covering the years from 1864 through 1882.
All Arizona records are available at azlibrary.gov and can be found on the Doing Research at the Archives page or directly at https://www.azlibrary.gov/arm/research-archives/archives-resources/ancestry-arizona.
This access requires a free Ancestry.com Arizona account. To set up your account you simply go to the web page and enter your five digit Arizona zip code in the space at the bottom of the page. Once your account is established researchers gain unlimited access to Arizona records that are a part of the State Archives of Arizona’s extensive holdings.

The Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records seeks your input…
Every year, the state library uses LSTA funds to provide statewide projects and fund LSTA subgrants. These funding decisions are based on the LSTA Five Year Plan. We are coming to the end of the five year cycle, and now we want you to tell us what worked, what didn’t, and what you would like to see in the next Five Year plan.
We work hard to understand the needs of all libraries and library users across Arizona, and the information we gather from the Five Year Plan evaluation is one of the most important ways we gather that data.
So what did you like over the last five years? What would you like to see more of during the next five years?
Survey closes January 1, 2017
Is your 2017 New Year’s resolution to finally start that business? Our friends at Phoenix Public Library have just released their 2017 Business Roadmap Program schedule!
