Finding Case Studies in Article & Book Databases

How to search: For the first 3 databases, in the advanced search interface, limit your "document type" to "case study", then click the "full text" box. In the search boxes, include the topic or company you're researching. For Ebook Central, put "case stud*" in one of the advanced search boxes and make sure it is searching the "title". (The asterisk will retrieve books that mention "case study" or "case studies" in their titles.) Include your topic or company of interest in the remaining search box. Some case studies in these databases will not be structured in a traditional business case format.
