To find HBR articles through the Sawyer Library homepage:


1. On the library homepage, click on the eJournals tab.

2. Type "Harvard Business Review" into the field and click Search. (The eJournals tab allows you to search for Sawyer Library online access to any periodical, newspaper, journal, etc.)

3. On the results page, choose the tiny blue link, "Business Source Complete," which holds full-text coverage of HBR from 1922 to the present day's issue.

4. On the new page, Publication Details for Harvard Business Review, you have two options:

 a. Search by year of publication, then volume and issue number, to find the exact issue of HBR required.

 b. Click the tiny link for "Search Within This Publication" in the upper left corner of this page, and search by keyword/author name/article title/etc.

5. If you choose to "Search Within This Publication," type a unique word or phrase from the article's title into the search field. Connect a title fragment with author's last name for best results. For example, you could type The Starbucks Effect and Harding into the search field to find this exact HBR article from 2000. Linking author and title fragment with the word "and" is an effective way to track down a specific article when searching our online version of Harvard Business Review.

* Please note that our subscription to Harvard Business Review does NOT include case studies. Case studies are only available - for purchase - on HBR's website.
