Hey 1T4's and all others,
I was having some trouble doing the survey, particularly the "industry" survey, as I drew a blank to how to access patents. I often came across ones where I had to pay, or had poor search methods, etc.
I went to the Engineering Library over the weekend, and they directed me to:
This site, if you browse around, can direct you to several international free patent websites, as well as website specific search help guides. I found this to be useful, and hope it can help others with their surveys too!
