Due to license restrictions in place by Harvard Business Publishing, libraries are not allowed to purchase or lend the popular Harvard Business Review case studies. Access is limited to individual purchase ($7 each), or via institutional copyright clearance.
Faculty: if you are interested in including a HBR case study in your course, contact SEBA staff for information on the possibility of purchasing the rights to do so. The Library will not be able to purchase the study for the collection.
Students: If you have been assigned a case study, check with your professor for information about accessing the content. The Library, unfortunately, will not be able to provide you with the content.
Note: One case study- typically featuring a fictitious company- is published each month in the Harvard Business Review magazine. These cases are accessible like all other HBR articles via the print edition or the online content in the Business Source Complete, or "Multisearch" database. (See the Business Administration Subject Guide for links.) However, due to Harvard Business Publishing's license agreement, they may not be able to be downloaded or printed, and may not be included in course reserves.
