Here is an example of a search that you can do in the Business Source Complete database to find case studies using a Document or Publication Type search.
1. On the Library homepage, click on Select a subject, in the center of the page.
2. Click on the link for Business and Management.
3. Scroll down to the section: Business & Management databases
4. Click on Business & management databases.
5. Scroll down and click on Business Source Complete.
6. If you have not already logged in to the Library databases, you will be prompted to log in with your myWalden Portal user name and password.
7. If you are not already on the Advanced Search screen, click on Advanced Search.
8. In the first search box type in your topic keywords. For example, you could enter:
entrepreneur or small business
9. Scroll down to the Limit your results section and select a limiter.
Search tip: Do not select both a publication type and a document type; that search is too narrow.
