Changes have been made to our Harvard Business Review access through the EBSCO Business Source Complete database. Harvard Business Publishing has changed the license agreement to make 500 selected Harvard Business Review articles “read-only” in Business Source Complete— the articles cannot be linked to, printed, or downloaded. This change will affect all university customers.
The 500 selected articles are composed of what Harvard considers popular or classic business articles. You and your students will still be able to locate these articles in Business Source Complete but you will be limited to reading them online.
If your students require personal paper or electronic copies of these articles as part of your course readings, you will need to include these articles in your print or electronic course packs. If you find you need a copy of one of these articles for your personal use, Pomerantz Business Library staff will be happy to deliver it to you via our document delivery services.
Please note that Harvard Business Review articles are not to be used in classes. Professors should purchase course materials from Harvard Business Publishing. The following statement is below every HBR article in Business Source Complete:

The first numbers from the 2010 Census will be announced today and two cool links reflecting new numbers have been added to http://guides.lib.uiowa.edu/census. One is an interactive map for population change and the second is a snappy littleYouTube video explaining Apportionment. Iowa is one of the many states that will lose a seat or two in the U.S. House of Representatives due to application of the apportionment formula.
