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.
Search tip: A Document Type search is the narrowest search you can do. Keep in mind that results depend upon how a document was cataloged when added to the database. It is possible some case studies were not cataloged correctly.
Search tip: These instructions are mostly for the different EBSCO databases. Databases from other companies may or may not have the same advanced search options.
1. On the Library homepage, click the blue Articles by Topic button.
2. Under Select a subject, click on the link for Business and management.
3. Scroll down on this page until you see the Business & Management Databases box.
4. The first database listed in this box is Business Source Complete. Click on the link to access the database.
5. 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.
6. If you are not already on the Advanced Search screen, click on Advanced Search.
7. In the first search box type in your topic keywords. For example, you could enter:
entrepreneur or small business
Search tip: To see all of the results for a particular publication or document type do not type in any keywords. Simply select the limiter and click on search.
8. Scroll down to the Limit your results section and select a limiter.
Here is an example of the limiter box in EBSCO databases for Publication Type: Case Study
Here is an example of the limiter box in EBSCO databases for Document Type: Case Study
9. Click on the Search button to run your search.
Search tip: Do not select both a publication type and a document type; that search is too narrow.
