Locating Business Case Studies

Sources and search strategies for locating examples of business case studies.

Business Databases

All Tulane library resources are licensed for academic purposes only. Using these resources for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited.  Off-campus access is available only to current Tulane students, faculty, and staff.  Tulane Library users are responsible for compliance with this policy. The complete policy on resource use is available here: Proper Use of Turchin Library's Licensed Databases.

Scholarly Case Studies

These resources are fee based. Business schools, a top source for case studies, generally do not sell case studies to libraries but instead sell them directly to the public.  Most case studies range from $5 - $10 and can be downloaded directly.

Harvard Business Review Case Studies

Finding Case Studies in Article Databases

In the advanced search screen type "Case Studies" in the first search box and use the pull-down menu to the right to select "subject". In the next search box enter either a company name or a topic such as communication.
