Harvard Business Review in Business Source Premier: Use restrictions

The following message appears at the end of every Harvard Business Review article within Business Source premier, and restricts use of the content more fully than most of the content in Business Source Premier:

“Harvard Business Review and Harvard Business School Publishing content on EBSCOhost is licensed for the individual use of authorized EBSCOhost patrons at this institution and is not intended for use as assigned course material. Harvard Business School Publishing is pleased to grant permission to make this work available through ‘electronic reserves’ or other means of digital access or transmission to students enrolled in a course. For rates and authorization regarding such course usage, contact permissions@hpsp.harvard.edu.”

Please note that most content in Business Source Premier may be used in electronic course reserve systems and in web-based course sites as well as coursepacks. Harvard Business Review is an exception to the overall rule.
