Conducting a Patent Search

Join us on Thursday February 28, 2013 between  9:30 AM - 11:30 AM ( 2 hours ) in room 1504 - Science Complex

Michael White, MLIS, B.A., Librarian for Research Services, Queens University  will be conducting a session titled: Conducting a Patent Search

 Search for prior-art is the primary criteria to establish the novelty and non-obviousness of an invention and hence to determine its patentability. Prior-art will include patents related to an invention. In this workshop you’ll learn about the tools and resources available to do a patent search which teaches or otherwise directly related to your invention(s). On-line demonstrations will also be given on some methodologies specific to your technical field. Please bring your laptop for the session. (Charge stations may not be available).

The workshop is planned for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculties.
