Intellectual Property Law Librarians Offer Conference Events

If you or your library support an intellectual property practice, if you enjoy patent, trademark, or copyright issues, or if you just want to share your concerns and observations about IP issues with a group of like-minded librarians, join members of the PLL-SIS Intellectual Property Law Librarians Caucus for two exciting events at this week’s annual conference.

Early risers will especially enjoy the IPLL Caucus Business Meeting on Monday July 10 from 7:00 – 8:45 am. Plan to join a freewheeling discussion on issues ranging from recent patent database mergers to potential professional development opportunities geared for IP librarians over a delicious continental breakfast. You are welcome to bring up issues of special concern to you. Meet us in the Renaissance Grand Landmark 5.

Afternoon types can prepare for cocktail hour on Tuesday July 11 from 4:00 – 5:00 pm by joining us at program workshop “60 Key Intellectual Property Research Sites in 60 Minutes.” Caucus members Jacqueline Grossman of Townsend and Townsend and Crew LLP, and Julie Watters of RWS Group will demonstrate and discuss the most important web-based resources for intellectual property research.

We look forward to seeing you at either or both events!

Organized in 1996, the PLL-SIS Intellectual Property Librarians’ Caucus is made up of librarians who deal with patent, trademark, and copyright issues in their libraries.
