  Patent Search Class
Location: Library Homer Rice Center (Ground Floor West)

You have an invention and you want your idea be protected. Before filing a patent appliction, you would want to find out if the same idea has been published. A good patent search will help you identify prior art references that are critical to the patentability of your invention. Whether you are an inventor/entrepreneur or someone who just has an interest in patents, we designed this class to help you understand patent documents and navigate through multiple free online patent databases effectively.

  • Part One: Introduction (including patentability requirements, identification of patent documents, patent classifications and patent search strategies)
  • Part Two: Hands-on practice (covering classification search using USPTO's PatFT/AppFT, and EPO's Espacenet; Hybrid search using classification and keywords)

* Prerequisites: Preview the 7-Step patent search strategy video by the USPTO before coming to class

  VantagePoint Training Session Part One: Introduction (Application overview, importing data, cleaning data)
Location: Library Homer Rice Center (Ground Floor West)

VantagePoint is a powerful text-mining tool for discovering knowledge in text databases. It helps you quickly understand and navigate through large volumes of text-based information, giving you a better way to view your information and turn your information into knowledge. Multiple Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) data resources provide a potent opportunity to enhance university research, helping to address such issues as:

  • What facets of this technology development are especially hot?
  • What is on the cutting edge in my area of interest so I can be sure my focus is novel?
  • Who else at my or another university is doing research related to mine?
  • Are there applications for my research outside its current area?
  • Who is citing my research and what are they doing?
  • For my interdisciplinary proposal, which local university resources should I include?

VantagePoint – Part One - Introduction (Application overview, importing data, cleaning data)
Friday, January 29
1:00 – 4:00 PM

VantagePoint – Part Two - Analyzing data (Lists, Co-occurrence matrices, Maps)
Friday, Feb. 12
