Harvard Business School Case Studies are designed for classroom use by individual students. They are similar to course packs. Licensing restricts use to individuals. The UCF Libraries cannot purchase these materials, and cannot obtain them through Interlibrary Loan. However, you may purchase a copy of any case yourself for individual use directly from Harvard Business Publishing for $6.95:
Go to the Harvard Business Review Store
A separate copy must be purchased by or for each individual student. Information from their website: "Need to Make Copies? First, you must already have purchased a single copy of the product you wish to reproduce. If you need to make additional copies to distribute, you must purchase copyright permission. Access to case studies expires six months after purchase date."
NOTE: UCF does have access in Business Source Premier to Harvard Business Review, which includes some articles classified by document type as "Case Study," but the Harvard Business School Case Studies are a different product and are not part of the library subscription.
