Notes

Abstract: Patents protect the intellectual property rights of inventors. By providing access to patent documents, we allow readers to learn about creative and original research innovations. Patents represent an important facet of university research, yet are often underrepresented in institutional repositories (IRs). Patents submitted by University of North Texas (UNT) faculty typically go through the UNT Office of Technology Transfer and if accepted, on to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Patents are available in the public domain through certain databases, such as the USPTO and Google Patents. However, IRs offer a potential for wider dissemination of patents and greater search capabilities, such as keywords and departmental affiliations, which makes them a better candidate for housing these important documents. By archiving these patents in our IR, we are able to create a more complete profile of the scholarly output of our faculty and strengthen awareness of the research activities of our university. This presentation discusses the process of including patents in an IR, metadata considerations, and the advantages and challenges of the Patent Project.
