Case Catalog Tips

Discover more in the Case Catalog when you do a Subject Search

Subject searches are targeted & powerful, and provide good browsing for new ideas. The resulting sub-topics cascade out in an A-Z fashion, offering you more options in smaller yet still relevant sections.

Example: Economics =  600+ main categories, 7500+ items

'Economic Development' is a smaller subset & has many more individual, smaller sets by geography, history, & aspects (politics, social, research, environmental, etc.)

TIP: Find the newest/oldest/most relevant items...

Subject search: sustainable development--social aspects 

Click the top of page "Limit/Sort" icon & then sort for "reverse year" for the most current titles
