225 years of patents

Fondren Library’s Patent and Trademark Resource Center threw a soirée Aug. 7 in honor of the 225th anniversary of the first U.S. patent. The center wanted to remind the campus community that about 400 Rice patents are now available in the Rice Digital Scholarship Archive. These patents are searchable by inventor/author, issue date, title and keyword.
