Q. How can I find a non-fiction business case study? All the ones I've found in the databases and Google are fiction.

Answer

I would suggest the following strategies in finding a business case study. I assume you mean a case study that involves a company, corporation or a non-profit:

1)      Database Search: The best database to use is Business Source Complete in Research Port. You can access this at USG or from home.  You can search by using the name of a company and then use “case study” as a search term or check off the box for type of document.

2)      2) Books: There are many business books in the library (both at USG and McKeldin) that have case studies of companies.  These are not always easy to find in a catalog search.  I would suggest coming to the library and a librarian can help you find one of those books in HD or HF section of the stacks.  If you do not have a specific company in mind then selecting one will be easy. 

3)    3)  After you decide on a company to study then you can do further study in other databases such as Lexis-Nexis or Factiva which have current data on companies.
