Learn & Create Workshops

Explore the hidden resources of patents.  About 85% of the technical information in patents is found nowhere else.  This workshop will feature a basic introduction to what a patent is, the various types of patents in existence, and how to complete patents searches. In addition to providing inventor exclusive rights to products they produce, patents also give great detailed information on certain products and methods. Taught by Kari Kozak, Head, Lichtenberger Engineering Library.
