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:
- ABI/Inform Collection has a an option to limit searches to Case study as a document type; here is an example: Williams, J., & Olsen, K. (2006). Developing a telecommunication operation support systems (OSS): The impact of a change in network technology. (). Hershey: IGI Global. Retrieved from https://search.proquest.com/docview/192333592?accountid=14214
- Books24x7 is an ebook collection that includes some case study works (for example: Case Studies in System of Systems, Enterprise Systems, and Complex Systems Engineering, Alex Gorod (ed) et al. CRC Press (c) 2015; 9781466502390
- Business Source Elite has an option to limit searches to Case study as a document type; here is an example: Essig, M., Glas, A. H., & Gutsmiedl, J. (2015). Procurement of a supply information system. Journal of Enterprise Information Management, 28(3), 377-399. Retrieved from https://search.proquest.com/docview/1664420331?accountid=14214
- Journal of Information Technology Teaching Cases (although we do not have access to the current year)
- Journal of Information Technology Cases and Applications
- Marketline Advantage (an industry market research database; you can limit your search to case studies)
- SAGE Research Methods Cases (for teaching research methods, also useful for anyone developing case studies)
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
