Wondering about provisional patent applications?

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!

The Future of Libraries

 

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?
