[CANCELED] CANCELED: Patents: What are these things?

In order to protect the health and safety of our campus community and visitors, the University of Iowa has decided to cancel the Learn & Create Workshop on April 7th.  We apologize for the inconvenience but felt it was important to make a decision as soon as possible.  

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.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Kari Kozak in advance at 319-335-6047 or kari-kozak@uiowa.edu.
