Can I locate Harvard case studies and articles in the library so I don’t have to pay for them via

Unfortunately Harvard Publishing licenses all materials for course readings exclusively through 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 when readings are part of your course curriculum.

Can I find my class textbooks in the library’s collection?

Unfortunately the cost of annually purchasing updated editions of textbooks is prohibitive and would divert dollars from purchasing new databases and other important resources. 


Proper User of GBL and Emory Libraries Subscription Databases

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.  

See our examples of appropriate and inappropriate use of Emory Libraries databases.

How to Cite Your Sources

Don’t Plagiarize! Remember your ethical and legal copyright obligations; cite all sources you use in your presentations and reports. 

Citing Sources in your Slide Decks

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.

For guidelines for correctly citing sources in your decks and bibliographies, see the GBL Citation Guide for PowerPoint presentations and the GBL Citation Guide for papers.
