CasePlace.org offers three ways to search.
For the most open-ended search, you may do a keyword search by typing a word or phrase into the search box, (much as you would with a search engine like Google), and clicking on the arrow or your computer’s Enter button.
If you know that you are searching for something in particular—for example a document in a particular discipline, an article by a particular author, or a particular kind of product type (e.g. a teaching module or a web conference recording)—you may “browse” to find it by hovering your mouse over the relevant category in the list below the keyword search box, and then clicking on the sub-category for which you are searching in the sub-menu that appears. For example, it you hover over “Discipline” and then click on “Strategy”, you will see a list of all documents that have been cataloged as pertaining to strategy.
You may do a multi-layered or “advanced” search by combining more than one search and both of the above techniques in one search. To do this, you may either use the “advanced search” page (which you may access via the button at the bottom of the search box), or you may refine your search by applying additional filters to your search using the search box on the left side of the record page. For example, if you are looking for a teaching module on low-wage workers that you know was written by Jennifer Johnson, you can click on the teaching module product-type, click again on “Author” and click on “Jennifer Johnson”, and type “low-wage” into the search box. If you wish to un-refine your search and return to previous results, you may remove filters in any order. Your filters will be listed under “Your Search” at the top of the page; click on “remove” next to the listed filter you wish to remove.
The search results page you will see when you use any search option shows you ten results per page. You can sort these options by publication date, product type, how often they are downloaded, and how highly they are rated by CasePlace.org faculty users.
