This week in Tips from Brenna and Tasha…

Brenna and Tasha have been exploring case-related resources. SU Libraries currently subscribe to some, and Brenna will be exploring a few more in the spring of 2018.

Brenna welcomes thoughts about what kinds of cases would be most useful – for example:
· Short (1-2 pages) or lengthy
· Formal cases with a instructors’ answer key
· Locally authored cases (for example, cases created and used by iSchool faculty)
· Cases on specific aspects of information management, systems, etc., and if so, which
· Other? For example – is there anything else you would like to see in a case?

Here are a few of the resources to which SU Libraries’ currently subscribes that have some case-related content:

Here are a few of the resources currently on the market – we welcome feedback as to whether any might be of interest in exploring further (as funds allow):
•     Sage Business Cases
•    Emerald Case Studies
•    IGI Global – InfoSci Cases and IGI Global Case Books

Reminder of just a few of the general FCTL services available to all instructors…
