With the recent Statement on HBR Pricing and Access from Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of the American Library Association, and the flurry of responses it has generated, some of our customers have asked if articles in ProQuest can be used to support teaching and course work.
The good news is, yes they can. Customers may include durable links to articles or other works within electronic reserve systems, online course packs, or intranet sites for authorized users (click on the image at the right to enlarge it).
We encourage you to make the most of your ProQuest content with these tips for supporting teaching in business and other courses.
- Request a copy of our List of 500 Alternative HBR Articles, that provides options for alternative reading suggestions (created by the ABI/INFORM editors).
- Create links to specific ProQuest content or topic paths for embedding in course LibGuides, websites, or syllabi:
- Show users how to create RSS feeds so they automatically receive current business news, or find the most recently published articles on a specific topic or within a specific journal.
- Tag relevant ProQuest results with your course name or number or professor’s name to make it easy for students to find assigned reading. You can also create lists to be shared with teams working on projects together.
For insights into how ProQuest helps students “explore the way a certain theme affects and business and economies around the world,” read this case study on the use of ABI/INFORM in teaching, courses, and research at the University of Edinburgh.
If you ever have any questions or concerns over whether an item from ProQuest cannot or should not be used to support course work, or about your Electronic License Agreement, please contact your ProQuest account representative. We will be happy to answer your questions.
