How to locate business case studies in the Trible Library

What is a business case study?

"A case study presents an account of what happened to a business or industry over a number of years. It chronicles the events that managers had to deal with, such as changes in the competitive environment, and charts the managers' response, which usually involved changing the business- or corporate-level strategy."

  • This guide is designed to help you locate cases which are available for free either through the library's resources or a website that provides free/open access case studies.
  • Commercially published case studies are sold by places such as Harvard, University of Virginia's Darden Business Publishing or the Ivey School of Business and are not available in the library. If you decide to purchase a case from one of these resources you will be responsible for the associated costs.
  • Cite Your Source

Remember to cite your source for the case, no matter how you obtain it.

Failing to cite where you obtained the material is plagiarism!
