SAGE Business Cases: Database Review

Sage Business CasesFinding business case studies can be exasperating, but SAGE Business Cases, a new library database, can dramatically decrease your search time. With over 1,000 continuously updated business case studies, projected to increase to 2,500 by 2018, you are sure to find what you need.

SAGE Business Cases has collaborated with many highly regarded Content Partners to provide up-to-date and relevant case studies. They include Yale School of Management, Georgetown Institute for the Study of Diplomacy, and the Society for Human Resource Management. The studies are designed to suit a range of academic uses from short vignettes to narrative long form, written using both field research and publicly available information. In addition, these
cases are integrated with SAGE’s book, video, and reference content, allowing for a rich scholarly environment and enhanced discovery.
You can start with the search box or browse by subject, content partner, or academic level. If you are not sure what you are looking for, you can simply browse all case studies. There are many filters on the right side of that list to more accurately find the content you need. You can even search by word count in case you are short on time!

Many classes at Bellevue University ask students to find relevant case studies for class work and research papers; chances are SAGE Business Cases has something appropriate for your topic of study! Any case study you click on will provide a great starting point to find related content. For example, the case “Is This Any Way to Run a Prison” by Craig E. Johnson, offers a list of eight related case studies right at the top of the page! You can continue to search keywords within any given case study, find discussion questions, and share what you discover on multiple social networks. It is easy to expand on ideas and stay on topic with these interactive features and tools. Information about references is provided, as well as DOI codes, and citations. The uses for SAGE Business Cases are as varied as the students and professors who use them, but finding needed case studies has never been so simple! Look for SAGE Business Cases on the “Database” link under “Find” on the library homepage.
