Patent Literature Information and ORBIT Training

Published on

A half day training on patents and patent searching.

In cooperation with ORBIT/Questel, Wageningen UR Library organizes a patent information and training session. Wageningen UR Library subscribes to ORBIT for patent literature searching. All Wageningen UR staff and students have access to ORBIT.

This halfday training will give a general introduction to patents (which specific fields/numbers/codes etc. are there?) and an introduction to patent literature searching in ORBIT. These introductions will be followed by a hands-on training. If you already use ORBIT but still have specific questions about this tool, you are welcome to come to the hands-on training. 


  • General introduction on patents and ORBIT from 9.00-10.45
  • Hands-on training and question time from 11.00-12.30

The training will take place on Wednesday, 12 February, in room 460 Forum Library.

Admission is free but you need to register. To register, please send an email to before 7 February.
