Can I locate Harvard case studies and articles in the library so I don’t have to pay for them via Study.net?
Unfortunately Harvard Publishing licenses all materials for course readings exclusively through Study.net and GBS is legally bound to comply with this requirement. You can access HBR articles via Business Source Complete, but Harvard requires they be purchased via Study.net when readings are part of your course curriculum. Read more.
Can I find my class textbooks in the library’s collection?

Emory database licensing agreements allow student usage for coursework, career preparation and personal enrichment. It is illegal to use Emory Libraries databases for your employer or internship. Both the honor code and Emory policy mandate the proper use of licensed databases.
According to Emory's Copyright Infringement Policy, students, faculty and employees are required and expected to adhere to US copyright law, which restricts reproduction, distribution, and other uses of copyrighted materials.
Giving credit to the sources you reference in your presentation is not only about compliance with copyright laws (database vendors require complete citations as part of their licensing agreements); it’s also a critical part of building credibility and trust with your client.
