Due to copyright restrictions, Harvard Business school case studies are unavailable through the library or its course reserve service.  As per the Harvard Business School Baker Library's Inter-library loan policy, HBS cases: Baker Library is prohibited from copying cases. 

You can order a print or electronic case for a fee by going to their website.  If you need a case for a class, ask your professor to register with the Harvard Business Publishing Educator's website so that you can get cases at a discounted price. 

The Harvard Business Review does not include the Business School cases, however it does publish one case study abstract per issue. The Harvard Business Review is available online via Business Source Complete database. Select "Case Study" under Document Type in combination with company names or terms of interest for old cases.

Starting from August 2013, some changes are made to Harvard Business Review (HBR) article access via databases.  Please see the attached list (down below) with 500 articles that HBR limits their access in EBSCO Business Source Complete database.  These articles are "read only", meaning no download to print or save on a disk.  Some viewers may find it inconvenience.  An alternative is to get the in-print version at the UTK Libraries.

The UTK Library System has a print subscription and a microfilm subscription to Harvard Business Review.  The Call number is HF5001.H3

As per EBSCO, these 500 articles are the ones that HBR has chosen.  It is a static list and it will not change yearly.  However, HBR owns the content and can certainly make a change again if they choose to.  These articles are clearly marked "read only" in the database in order to differentiate them from the rest of HBR articles.

Also check out Harvard Business Review's feedback about using these article as course materials on ( - "These articles remain available for researchers and research use – we simply limited the means by which they can be assigned and distributed as course materials."

Using Symplectic Elements

The Libraries has resources to help you quickly input citation information into Elements:

  • Get an ORCID ID.
  • Create your list of publications in ORCID using ORCID’s search wizards. Here’s a guide on how to quickly add your article citations using ORCID search+link (takes ~10 minutes for most faculty).
  • Once your citations are in ORCID, then Elements, Pivot, various funders (like the NIH and NSF) and other programs can pull your list of publications from ORCID so you don’t have to re-enter your information in multiple places. Here’s a video with basics on integrating ORCID into Elements (~1 minute).
  • You may want to just import citations of your work into Elements. This library guide will give you instructions on importing your citations from your discipline’s favorite database.
