bibliographic records for the year will be included in this one source.
Bibliographic records contain a representative claim and drawing (if

information. Consistent with the weekly eOG:P issues, patents can be
browsed by type of patent (utility, plant, etc.), classification (class
or class/subclass), patentee name, and geographical location. The
Official Gazette Notices, covering both patents and trademarks, will
also be included.

subscription price of the eOG:P. Subscribers will receive notification
when the annual index is available.
The Index of Patents Issued From the U.S. Patent and Trademark
