The Mississippi Library Commission was designated as an official Patent & Trademark Resource Center (previously Patent & Trademark Depository Library) in 1990 by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Patent and Trademark Office. A wide variety of services are provided from extensive holdings of patent & trademark resources. While the primary users are inventors, attorneys, and researchers, the services are open to the general public.

As a patent training and search can take between one and three hours, we recommend you schedule a time to meet with Lawrence Smith, Collection Management Director and Patent Librarian, by emailing him at or calling 601.432.4120.
