    This needs more context. Can you give us a complete sentence?

  • Not if you read the link. Information on or about. Never of with the meaning seen in the link.

Per the link you provided, information of means information belonging to.

It may be possible that, at a school, information resulting from classroom case studies is stored somewhere, and that what you're interested in looking at this information.

In such a specific situation, using of would be correct—but it would still sound awkward because we wouldn't normally phrase it that way.

information of case studies

This sounds like a mistake.

Instead, we might say:

Please provide me with information produced by classroom case studies.

(Adding the classroom qualifier is important here, as it limits the information to a manageable and specific subset.)


However, it's much more likely that what's being requested is information on the subject of case studies. In which case, the following (including about) are all prepositions that can be used:

information about case studies
information on case studies
information concerning case studies
