Patent library contains information about industrial property rights


The PRH library specialises in industrial property rights and is the largest of its kind in Finland. The collection in our special library contains information about:
  • patents and utility models;
  • trademarks and design rights; and
  • companies, associations and foundations.

The library books are freely available for loan, although most of them are located on different floors in our office premises. The staff will bring the books on request to our Customer Service. Use our book database to check if a book is available in the library. If the book is on loan, you will see the due date.

We have a broad collection of periodicals about industrial property rights, and publications about economics, various branches of technology, chemistry and medicine, which are available for reading and photocopying on request.

You can also use the patent library services online. The book database shows you our recent acquisitions, and our link list takes you to various journals to view their contents and current topics.

It is possible to reserve a book in advance to have it ready for you at our Customer Service. Book reservations can be made by phone and email.
