Frequently Asked Questions
What are PubWEST and PubEAST, and how do I get access to them?
PubWEST and PubEAST are different versions of the Examiners Search Tool used by the USPTO patent examiners to search patents. They have greater search capabilities than the search tool on the USPTO web site, as well as greater access restrictions. The two resources can only be used at the Hunt Library and require library staff to log you in.
