The UBC Library DOES NOT subscribe to Harvard Business Review.

We have limited access through a subscription to EBSCOhost journal aggregator database “Business Source Complete.”

UPDATE : As an alternative to the “browse” method below, if you have followed a PURL into the EBSCOhost database, you can also re-do your search within the EBSCOhost Database to get to the PDF version of the HBR article.

What does this mean? It means that articles 1) cannot be Printed, 2) cannot be saved & 3) that permanent URLs (PURLs) will not work to give you the PDF. If you need to access an article from HBR, please browse for it by starting at the journal title level (it can be found using the eJournal Portal – the “Journal Titles” tab on the Library Homepage) and then going to the year, Volume, Issue and finally page for the article.

This is out of the Library’s hands as it is part of an agreement between Harvard & EBSCOhost.

Certain ebook URLs are breaking and leading to the Off-Campus AccessOops” page (even when users are on campus).

Mostly, these are ebooks that were on the old eBook Library platform (retired some time ago) and are now on the ProQuest eBoook Central platform.

We are working on the issue and hope for a solutions soon.

If faced with this error message, please try searching for the ebook HERE .

Occasionally, on the Taylor & Francis ebook site, you will see a title that says “This title is not available for sale” and you will not have access to the full text.

We apologize for any confusion this causes.

We try to only list in the Catalogue and Summon ebooks that have full-text access. However, the title list we use is not pre-sorted to identify the “not for sale” titles from Taylor & Francis (this site also includes CRC Press, Routledge and several other imprints). so, we do not know which of the over 120,000 ebooks have been withdrawn until someone comes across this message.

If you find a T&F ebook like this, please report it via our Help Form and we will remove it and advise on an alternative source (if available) for the title.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Ulrichsweb link (under hypertext “Title details from ulrichsweb.com” from the eJournal Portal’s result page is currently leading to the error message:

We do not have enough information.

We are working to resolve the issue.

You can still get to Ulrichsweb to see information about journals via our Resource page, and then search for the journal from there.
