Sage Research Methods and Cases

Sage Research Methods is “providing material to guide users through every step of the research process. Nearly everyone at a university is involved in research, from students learning how to conduct research to faculty conducting research for publication to librarians delivering research skills training and doing research on the efficacy of library services.” [Source Sage]

Sage Research Methods Cases: “provides more than 1100 case studies, showing the challenges and successes of doing research, written by the researchers themselves.  They explain why the researchers chose the methods they did, how they overcame problems in their research and what they might have done differently with hindsight: the realities of research that are missing from journal articles and textbooks.” [Source: Sage]
