This page aims to give Brookes users a starting point for finding patents information online.
Please note: Oxford Brookes Library is not able to carry out patent searching on your behalf. For comprehensive searches or specialist help, we recommend you contact the British Library or one of the specialist patents libraries listed below.
The organisations listed below are able to provide help and advice on patents and patents research.
There are several free databases on the Internet, which allow you to search for patents and, in some cases, access the full text of published patents. It should be noted that none of these databases are comprehensive.
The titles listed below are just some of those available in the library, giving more detailed information and advice on searching for patents.
DesignView allows you to search for registered designs using keywords.
