Abstract

Patent and Trademark Depository Libraries (PTDLs) were surveyed to measure the effort they expended to promote and publicize patent and trademark services and resources during one 12-month period. Responding libraries undertook leadership in 578 events attended by 23,446 persons. Additionally, they distributed more than 75,074 copies of locally-produced information pieces. This article discusses various characteristics of the efforts developed by PTDLs to raise awareness of library services and resources.
