Most case studies from Harvard Business School, Harvard Business Review and other case publishers like Ivey and Darden, are commercial (pay-for-use).  The library cannot supply them for you via InterLibrary Loan (ILL). The only way to get them is to pay for them.

If your professor is using commercial case studies in your class, s/he may have set up online ordering in advance.  If so, follow the link in your World Classroom course page and you may be able to purchase the case at a reduced price.  

The library does, however, have access to some "free" case studies. For example, the Harvard Business Review magazine and other periodicals publish articles that are written as case studies.  You may get more information on our Business Case Studies research guide. If you are having trouble finding a case study article on a certain topic, please ask us for help!.
