This session is for new International graduate students who would like an overview of how to use the rich resources and services of an American-style research library. Register for either session:
If you have been out of school and have decided to return or continue your education, then this session is for you. We will cover the basics of how doing research has changed, especially focusing on the NYU Libraries website, online catalogs, and databases. Register for either session:
Already know about research basics? This session will help you understand how to take your research to the next level, using the vast resources of the NYU Libraries. We’ll concentrate on how and where to find key tools and expertise, how to be most efficient and effective in your searching, and how to create systems and workflows that support your work. By becoming adept at these three things, you’ll have more time and energy to concentrate on the content of your work. Register for either session:
Finding funding opportunities can be a difficult and overwhelming activity for any student. This workshop aims to help simplify the process by discussing tools and resources available at NYU. Additionally, we will break down how to tackle some of the most common application features in Grants and Fellowships (Research/Personal Statements, Data Management, Letters of Recommendation, etc.)
There is increasing pressure from top journals and grant agencies to include supporting research data at time of publication, however the burden of storage and accessibility often falls to the researcher. This session will cover how you can use GitHub and the Open Science Framework to open up your research, as well as connect your publications with the corresponding data.
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 mention the major patent databases including 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 (that will highlight tools and challenges).
You have an idea for an invention, but is it patentable? And if so, how do you go about getting a patent?
This workshop will teach you the basics of what a patent is, how to read a patent document, the different types of patents, and how to start a patentability search. You will also learn about related resources available to NYU students.
In this session, intended for graduate students, we will explore various databases and resources with an emphasis on Electrical & Computer Engineering Research. We’ll concentrate on how and where to use key tools, how to be most efficient and effective in your searching, and how to create systems and workflows that support your work. By becoming adept at these three things, you’ll have more time and energy to concentrate on the content of your work.
These techniques will be useful for researchers of all science disciplines, not just Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering students.
How does your innovation become a patent? Learn from our panel of experts including: Professor Michael Knox, Engineer in Residence in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and inventor on 13 U.S. patents; Christopher Snyder, Business Development Manager for NYU’s Office of Industrial Liaison; and Anne Hassett, executive director of NYU Law’s Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy. This event will also feature student representatives from Patent Pending, Design for America, and the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Association and student moderator Chandrika Khanduri.
