Why doesn’t the Library have a collection of Harvard Business School cases on file?
Due to copyright restrictions, libraries are not authorized to purchase copies of actual cases. Harvard restricts the cases, because they don’t want individuals to be able to make unidentified photocopies of entire cases. Instead, cases are available for sale, either individually or in bulk, with a discounted price for multiple copies. Faculty members may also purchase multiple copies of cases, for distribution to students. Search the HBS Publishing online catalog for more information.
