The goal of this project was to design the framework for a historical event database for the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We used interviews and archival research to identify the events and organize the historical event timeline. We also completed a case study on one important event to test the effectiveness of our framework and its content. We developed a set of recommendations to aid the managers in maintaining the database once it has been fully implemented.
