Using HBP Materials in Non-CSOM Classes
Option 1 Process: You can require all students to purchase the course materials. The cost for individual items will be approximately $3.40 per case/article.
- The Copyright Permissions Service staff will work with the University Bookstores to activate the charges on all students’ accounts who are registered for the course.
- You (or your designate) must communicate with all enrolled students before they are charged
- The Bookstores must receive approval from your departments’ RRC staff member. (Request for approval is generated after you’ve submitted your course list to the Libraries.)
- Students will access their materials, including HBP materials, via the Course Reserves pages.
- All questions should be sent to email@example.com.
Option 2 Process: You can individually set up a course on Harvard Business Publishing’s website. The cost for individual items will be approximately $4.25 per case/article.
- Go to the HBP site: https://hbsp.harvard.edu/home/ and either sign in or register for an account.
- Once you are signed in, create your course.
- Select the items you want added to your course.
- Share the URL of your list with your students.
- Your student will then pay HBP directly for the use of the content.
- While this is a non-mediated option, if you need assistance setting this up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
