Additional information about this collection is also available at http:// www.reginfo.gov under ‘‘Information Collection Review.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract Patent and Trademark Resource Centers (PTRCs) are a nationwide network of public, state and academic libraries that are designated by the USPTO to disseminate patent and trademark information and to support the diverse intellectual property needs of the public. Accessing the patent and trademark information at a PTRC with the help of a trained specialist, allows the public to determine if someone else has already patented an invention or obtained a federal registration for a trademark on goods or services. Recognition as a PTRC is authorized under the provisions of 35 U.S.C. 2(a)(2), which provides that the USPTO shall be responsible for disseminating to the public information with respect to patents and trademarks. In order to be designated as a PTRC, libraries must fulfill the following requirements: (1) Assist the public in the efficient use of patent and trademark information resources; (2) provide free access to patent and trademark resources provided by the USPTO; (3) provide metrics on the use of patent and trademark services provided by the member library as stipulated by the USPTO; (4) provide metrics on outreach efforts conducted by the member library as stipulated by the USPTO; and (5) send representatives to attend the USPTO-hosted PTRC training seminars. Since the PTRC requirements stipulate that the participating libraries must submit metrics in order to be designated as a PTRC, the USPTO is submitting this information collection for review under the PRA. The information collected enables the USPTO to more effectively train the E:\FR\FM\17NON1.SGM 17NON1
