Most of The Case Centre's collection is available electronically ensuring materials are received instantly. We also provide a print service for those items only available in paper format.
Copies are watermarked with a sidenote including your name and information about the purpose for which it was purchased or downloaded. Electronic downloads are placed in your library area on our site when your order has been processed.
For personal or research purposes
All customers can order items for personal or research purposes. All items are available as electronic downloads.
Selecting for classroom use
To make the process of selecting teaching materials quick and easy we provide the following formats to customers with premium access.
We provide free online preview copies of as many products as possible to allow you to quickly assess the suitability of an item for use in the classroom. Preview copies are not for classroom use, they contain the full text of a case and every page is clearly watermarked as a preview copy. Preview copies are accessed directly from the item's record in our online search and are supplied as standard PDF files (i.e. not encrypted).
Most teaching notes are available electronically free of charge (with the exception of those from Harvard Business Publishing which must be ordered as printed copies). If an item has a free electronic copy available it will be indicated on its record in our online search. If an electronic copy is not available a printed copy can be purchased by adding the item to your basket.
For teaching purposes

CoursePack Creator*, powered by The Case Centre, is a tool to help you quickly create professional and comprehensive CoursePacks. Customers at member organisations can select SchoolPay to maximise ease of use for students by paying for all the materials in advance, once enrolment is confirmed. StudentPay is available to all customers. Add our materials and upload your own via CoursePack Creator.
Delivery of materials via your course area or eReader app
This service provides students with a seamless experience when accessing course materials via your course area or eReader app. More details about this option.
Printing copies for students from a download
When ordering (select 'print copies from a PDF') please specify the number of printed copies you will make (i.e. the number of students in the class) and we will provide an electronic master copy along with permission to print it the number of times stated on your order. Our minimum order quantity is five. The item will be accessible to download from your library area for the duration of the course so that you can print the requested number of copies from it.
