PIUG MONTHLY Calendar - June 7

Zoom Link:

Mark your calendars and plan to join us this Wednesday, June 7, 2023, 10:00am–11:00am ET, for a PIUG Community Engagement hour.  These bimonthly meetings will be informal get-togethers to network and share experiences around patent searching, databases & resources, analytics, etc. This is a great way to meet people in the patent information profession, connect with old friends & colleagues, and learn from each other.

We will do a quick overview of what is current in our community.  We would like some feedback about the community site and about plans for the rest of 2023, including some thoughts about the program from the annual meeting this year.  Hope to see everyone participating.

For your convenience, you may register for the event HERE.


    “Since it was launched in 2004, PubChem has become a huge database of 304 million substances with the US National Library of Medicine claiming that it indexes more than 114 million unique compounds.

    PubChem has become too big to ignore and it is now an essential source for any Chemistry search that is undertaken by a Patent Information Professional.

    Please come and join us on at the PIUG Community Engagement Hour on June 7th at 10am EST, where Dr Joerg Ohms (Wissinfo GmbH) and a small team from the PDG will describe the separate studies that they have made on the PubChem database.

    This two part presentation is as follows:

    Benefits and Pitfalls of PubChem Compounds Sourced from SureChEMBL, Patentscope, and Google Patents – by Dr Joerg Ohms (30 minutes)

    PubChem in Examiner Reports, Oppositions and Litigations with more Observations from the PubChem Records – by the PDG (15 minutes)

    Dr Ohms and the PDG will also outline areas of development for PubChem . There will be an opportunity for Patent Information Professionals to share the challenges they face when searching this important database.

    It is our aspiration that the post presentation discussion will help us all to envisage the PubChem database that the professional searching community would like to see in the future.

    We plan to make this a very informative PIUG Community Engagement Hour and we would be delighted if you could join us.”
