Built upon SAGE’s legacy of methods publishing, SAGE Research Methods is the essential online tool for researchers. SAGE Research Methods supports research at all levels by 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. SAGE Research Methods has the answer for each of these user groups, from a quick dictionary definition, a case study example from a researcher in the field, a downloadable teaching dataset, a full-text title from the Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences series, or a video tutorial showing research in action.
By the end of our session, participants will:
- Understand how to effectively search across content types and disciplines to identify the best materials to support each course.
- Understand how to use the Methods Map to help those less familiar with research find the best method to use in their research.
- Understand how to create Reading Lists of curated content to share and/or embed in CMSs.
- Understand how to create Custom Video Clips and Embed Video in CMSs.
- Understand how the Project Planner and Which Stats Test provide students with guidance and support as they plan and conduct research
SAGE BUSINESS CASES
SAGE Business Cases is a collection of cases designed to suit a range of academic and professional uses: from short vignettes to narrative long form, written using both field research and publicly available sources. These cases are available in an online learning friendly format with institution-wide access. Available both as a subscription or purchase, SAGE Business Cases is an easily accessible resource with 1,700 case studies, and our editors are already working on next year’s additions to reach 2,500 cases in 2018. SAGE Business Cases is easily integrated into course management systems and websites, as well as designed to be mobile responsive. Additionally, many cases include teaching notes and discussion questions to ensure effective classroom use. It’s never been easier for you and your patrons to access and share cases. In this session, you will learn more about SAGE Business Cases and its content - a breadth of cases that will allow patrons to study the successes and failures of specific businesses and innovative entrepreneurs – and how these resources can help you as you work with your faculty and students.

SAGE Stats is easily integrated into course management systems and websites. It’s never been easier for you and your patrons to access and share statistics. In this session, you will learn more about SAGE Stats and its content - harmonized and carefully-vetted data from multiple sources in the same format, allowing quick downloads, comparisons, and visualizations – and how these resources can help you as you work with your faculty and students. We hope to see you there!
