How do I access Harvard cases?

We do not have access to cases at the HBR Store

For instructors, register as a Premium Educator. You will need to verify your affiliation by providing a link to your faculty profile. You will have access to cases.

In order to use these cases in your class, you will need to purchase copyright permission based on the number of students in your class. Your school or departmental administrator can assist you with this. 

Looking for more cases? Consult other case platforms listed on this Business Guide, or contact the business librarian with your teaching needs

For students, your business librarian does not suggest you consult cases for your research. Cases are a snapshot of a company or industry at a specific time period and are meant for teaching concepts. You do not have access to instructor notes of cases.  

Are you confusing an HBR magazine article with an Harvard case?
