Using Search Tools for Market Research (MIT Only)

Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Virtual Event

When conducting research related to intellectual property, especially in the areas of patents and market research, there are some tools that you should keep in mind. In this session, Nick Albaugh, Management and Social Sciences Librarian for Innovation & Entrepreneurship from MIT Libraries, will explain the best tools to use as well as share more about:

- How to conduct a preliminary patent search using subscription-based and freely available tools

- How to find the most relevant market research using specialized resources

-How to gather material when a full market research report isn’t available

- How patent searching can inform market research and vice versa


Nick Albaugh is the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Librarian and Economics Librarian at the MIT Libraries and provides research assistance and consultations in these areas as well as business and management. He is a member of the MIT Libraries’ Urban Studies & Planning and Patents teams and also serves as a mentor for the MIT Sandbox Innovation Fund.
