Drexel University Libraries Expands Access to Harvard Business Review Articles to Include Course Use
Drexel faculty may now assign Harvard Business Review [HBR] articles in courses, including placing articles on reserve, posting them to course management shells, and adding them in course packs, as the result of a new licensing agreement acquired by the Libraries.
The Libraries’ special license will extend course use to HBR articles on behalf of Drexel faculty university-wide. Previously, the Libraries provided researchers access to the HBR, but the publisher restricted use of articles for courses. Articles could be used for research but could not be placed on reading lists, on reserve, or in course packs.
Note: HBR articles will continue to state that course use is not allowed, but the Libraries’ special license does allow this use at Drexel.
Faculty and students should not be concerned when encountering this text and are invited to contact John Wiggins, director of library services & quality improvement with questions or concerns.
