PRV's library

In our library you can find intellectual property, technology and patent information. We answer your questions and provide guidance on how to protect your idea. Our literature accessed in the discovery service BiblioteksSök can either be borrowed or read on the premises.

We offer free access to databases and literature in patents, trademarks, design, copyright and technology. When needed, we help you with search tips. Welcome to us!

Borrowing and ordering

These are the rules that apply when borrowing and ordering.


You can access a vast amount of information in our intellectual property, patent and technical literature databases.

Databases at the library

Basic guidance

We can offer some basic guidance in how to search our various databases. We can answer questions about patenting, e.g. how you can find out if your idea is new, what you should think about before applying for a patent and what happens after you have applied. We offer our support for up to 45 minutes, if you require more time, you might consider booking a course.
