The University of Maribor Library became a member of the PATLIB centres network (PATent LIBrary), in December 2003. In the countries, which are members of the European Patent Organisation (EPO), the PATLIB centres provide information on intellectual property. The users of our library can access information on industrial property (patents, models, marks) free of charge.

Databases on CD-ROMs available in the Library:

  • collections of published and issued patents from the EPO (ESPACE ACCESS, EP-A & EP-B);
  • patent applications in PCT in WIPO (ESPACE WORLD);
  • the Slovene patent documents (ESPACE SI);
  • the first pages of the European (EPO) and international (PCT) patent applications (ESPACE FIRST);
  • instructions and procedures for the European patent applications (ESPACE LEGAL);
  • descriptions of the ESPACE databases (EPO ESPACE collections).
