In this age of independent inventors and entrepreneurs, along with the business community, patents are more important than ever. This patent primer will provide context as well as educate attendees about patents, the application process, where and how to conduct an effective search depending on the level of authority required, and touch upon freely available resources. Of value to those wanting to search patents for applications to their research, those about to interview with a company, or just about anyone curious about how patents are organized. With over ten million U.S. patents, there is a lot to explore.
