Often in engineering, one is faced with having to find information on a specific topic in preparation for doing work or research in the area. For example, say you are working on designing an excavation tool for use on the Moon. Before you start conducting your own research, you must start by searching what previous research exists on the topic.

A patent is a right granted by a national government, upon application and in exchange for a complete disclosure of an invention that would allow a third party the ability to practice the invention. A patent grants to the applicant the exclusive right to make, use, or sell the claimed invention for a limited period of time.
Although McGill does not have patents, web-based patent search and retrieval systems are available for preliminary patent searches.
