ANZSOG’s Case Library is an internationally acclaimed resource centre for the promotion of interactive teaching.

Set up in 2004 to remedy the lack of case studies relevant to our region, the case library now has the third-largest repository of public sector cases in the world with nearly 200 cases from all levels of government.

It was designed as a resource for teachers using the interactive approach known as ‘case teaching’, which focuses on people as decision-makers and enables students to ‘stand in the shoes’ of the manager whose circumstances or dilemma are described in the case, giving practical shape and illustration to concepts.

Our case library offers members a regularly updated collection of cases set mainly in the public sector in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. Teaching notes and other resources also are available.

Access to the case library is free to our government and university partners and available to other interested parties for an annual fee.
