Searching Patents

For NYU Community

Join us in the final installment of our three part series on patents, Searching Patents .

Whether you’re conducting primary source research or you have an invention you want to patent, this workshop will provide helpful tips for conducting a patent search.  We will discuss the reasons to search, search strategies, and the challenges one will encounter.

We will also name the major patent databases mentioning their coverage and noteworthy features and provide links to exhaustive search strategies for future exploration. The bulk of our time will be spent demonstrating a streamlined strategy for finding US patents in a targeted area.

This event will be in the Bern Dibner Library on the NYU-Tandon School of Engineering campus in LC 433 on Wednesday, February 24 from 4:00pm-5:00pm
