Free patent workshop to be held Sept. 20 at Wichita State
A free workshop will provide introductory information on the patent process and hands-on training in patent searching. The workshop will be held at Wichita State University from 1-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, in 217 Ablah Library.

Nan Myers, associate professor and patents/trademarks librarian, will conduct the workshop.
Myers will explain how to do preliminary patent searching and give hands-on instruction in using the U.S. Patent Office's online database of patents from 1790 to the present.
