Many course materials are already available through our library databases and do not need to be purchased in Study.net.
Help Haas and your students save money by avoiding double-payment of items that are already accessible through library collections. Please share your course reader or syllabus with Nadia Winters, Business Information Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will review your reader and check the resources against the library resources. If the items can be accessed from library collections she will share the direct web links, which can be placed in bCourses. Please allow at least 2 full weeks before you need the links to allow Nadia sufficient time to review your syllabus.
These items are freely available to UC Berkeley instructors and students, and can be placed as links in bCourses.
HBR materials and Harvard case studies cannot be used as course materials, when linked through library resources. To set up HBR articles or HBS cases in bCourses, please contact Loyrisha Aucoin, email@example.com, who can place the articles in the paid platform Study.net.
Articles from the Harvard Business Review are available in EBSCO's Business Source Complete. Due to HBR's strict license agreements, linking to articles from Business Source Complete is not allowed when used for course materials. The restriction includes linking to HBR materials for bCourses websites, and course syllabi. In addition to these restrictions, HBR has developed an HBR 500 list. This is a list of the most popular 500 articles from HBR and these are "read-only" in Business Source Complete, which means those articles can't be downloaded.

Please see the statement from the American Library Association's (ALA) Business Reference and User Association's (BRASS) statement on the HBR 500 and the use restrictions.

Instructors can place textbooks and other print items on reserve for students. When the library is open, students may access these items for limited one-hour check outs. Access more information on the process here.
During the pandemic, the library has launched an electronic course reserves process. Instructors may submit their syllabi to the E-Reserves team for processing. When possible, unlimited e-books will be purchased, but when this isn't possible, the items will be purchased and digitized through the HathiTrust ETAS program. Please note that that access to these items may be limited due to copyright restrictions, and should not be used for open-book exams for an entire class.
