World Intellectual Property Day Library Program

World Intellectual Property Day was created by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to: “promote discussion of the role of intellectual property in encouraging innovation and creativity.”   This year the theme is focused on music, but we are interpreting that broadly, presenting a program to SING the praises of increasing access to Clemson Patents in TigerPrints and the Libraries’ Catalog.

Name of Program:  Increasing Access to Clemson Patents

Date / Time:       Friday, April 24, 11:00 am – 12:00 noon.  Cake served at noon.

Location:             Room 118, Academic Success Center

As a member of the Intellectual Property Committee –  or your association with CURF — you are cordially invited to join us.  I understand that the program is rather specific to the Library, but you are most welcome to attend.  If you want to come at the end just for cake, that’s fine too.
