Dibner Workshop #22: Patent Searching

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).

Dibner Workshop #20 Beyond Google: Electrical & Computer Engineering Research

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.
