  Introduction to R Studio
Location: Library Homer Rice Center (Ground Floor West)

R is a free, open source statistical analysis software package that is commonly used in research environments for data analysis and visualization. In this hands-on workshop attendees will learn the basics of how to get started with R Studio, including working with sample data to perform introductory statistical analysis and basic data visualization.

The session is geared towards those with minimal or no experience using the R software package although basic understanding of statistical concepts such as median, mean, and normality is recommended. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own research data sets and statistical challenges for peer-to-peer assistance at the end of the session. There is no cost for this workshop and all technology will be provided by the library. Seating is limited so advance registration is recommended.

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

Are you an inventor, an entreprenuer, a student or a researcher who is getting ready to apply for a patent or someone who is curious about patents? Before you talk to a manufacturer or the public about your invention, it is wise to get your idea protected. A good patent search will help you identify prior art references that are critical to the patentability of your invention. In this class, you will learn the patent basics as well as patent search strategies through hands-on exercises. Handouts are included. The class contains two parts:

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

We are offering this patent class on every 3rd Tuesday of the month in Spring. Please choose the date that fits your schedule and register online:
