With the national strategy of innovation driven development as background, patent informa- tion service is indispensable for government＇s industrial decision, technological competition of the enter- prise, transformation of scientific and technological outputs of universities or research institutions. With the growing demand for patent information service, it is far less than enough to meet the needs if we only rely on intellectual property department. It is necessary for social institutions to participate in, while aca- demic libraries have the ability to be the part of patent information service system. Website survey showed that the patent information service of academic libraries is on the very beginning stage. The trend of the service of academic libraries will be of higher enthusiasm, wider range of service client, multi-level service content and multi-service model. In order to develop the service more efficient, we need sufficient profes- sional librarians with patent knowledge, unified service specification and service standard and moreover, government policy support and quality certification.
